ANIMATED SERIES

All elements designed, directed, and animated by Joe Presser

 

nbc mach - mICROCOSMIC

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.
