In times of crisis and major scams, frustration and discontent feelings are widespread among the population and the defensive violence of the system seems more unfair than ever. And yet, it is difficult to think that a
police riot, which exercises a "legal" violence, is aware of the negative charge of his social role.
But what if he found himself face to face with the victim of his violence in another context, far from the chaos of the demonstration, outside the battlefield?
Would he keep his convictions or the meeting would undermine his schemes?
This is the starting point of The One-Eyed King: a black comedy which aims to demonstrate the perplexity in front of our complex social reality.

We're back in the driver's seat together again!"'- Fast Company Design
A disjointed version of "The Stranger Things" title starts the sequence, typographically setting the tone for the show. Imbuing the opening with a sense of unease, the music informs the movement of the type as the letterforms slide together to form the title. "The Stranger Things" main title mimics an optical look which reflects the time period.


Throughout the process, we had one basic rule: animate everything in 3D, but render it out with flat colors. In order to do this, we pushed the software in new and unusual ways. This included a unique combination of particle simulations, procedural shaders, and orthographic cameras. We then took this 3D animation and paired it with grid-based typography and a limited color palette. The resulting effect is something that is playful and straightforward, yet simultaneously too complex for the human mind to create without the help of powerful 3D software.”

For "Of Kings and Prophets," we collaborated with show creator Chris Brancato to design a title sequence for the epic David and Goliath-era biblical series on ABC. Together, we developed a concept to articulate two themes: The uniting of the 12 tribes of Israel, a fledgling nation surrounded by enemies under King Saul’s rule and the human stories of greed, love, ambition, betrayal, faith, loss and the temptations of sin. We shot live-action scenarios depicting the 10 Commandments and intercut these vignettes with a volcanic-black topographical map fragmented into 12 parts. The land masses move toward each other, surrounded on all sides by the threat of a prevailing tide of molten gold.
