The online science series Microcosmic examines the universe inside our bodies. The design and animation of this series mixes live footage with 2D animations, photos, and designs for a fermented style that emulates the cosmopolitan nature of our microbiota.
VOCATIV - NEW PROPHETS
Scientists and professors predict and discuss their fields' most dangerous problem in the next 10 years. Hand-drawn designs mix with a collage of textured 2d & 3D animation to seamlessly integrate these professors into the terrifying scenarios they discuss.
nbc mach - ALGORITHMICS
Algorithmics explores how data based sets of rules control our everyday life. To complement the binary nature of the algorithms, I created a simple, geometric flat-vector world with a palette dependent on the content of each episode.
NyMag - The Science of Us
This funloving series for New York Magazine explores social science and psychology to bring life to helpful tips. In a limited palette, I created a world of hand-drawn characters from an elephant artist to my own version of Lucy & Ricky.
nbc better - SOCIAL STUDIES
Social Studies finds self-improvement in pop psychology and socialogy. Its humor and its warmth lent itself well to a hand-drawn look and fun, bright almost painted on palette.
