TEDx Sydney 2018: Humankind Title Sequence

TEDx Sydney 2018: Humankind

Using the medium of title design to create a piece that was ultimately about more than just a single film, series, or event, was something Substance had been considering for a long time. When TEDx invited us to design the 2018 titles, it was the perfect opportunity to produce something that would not only satisfy the brief of a title, but continue to remain relevant to a wider audience, speak on a deeply personal level, and ask each of us to consider the hopes and fears we hold for our world. We hope that the titles for Humankind may help kindle this evaluation of our current position on humanity’s short timeline.
