I worked with TED to develop animated video content for their flagship 2017 conference. By the time I was brought on the conference was themed ‘The Future You’ and already had an intensely vibrant and dynamic identity created by Maya Sariahmed and the in-house design team at TED. The visual system was extremely flexible and a complete joy to build from. The largest piece of work included an opportunity to collaborate with the notable cellist Joshua Roman for an opening animation. Together we crafted a visual experience for which Joshua provided the soundtrack live on stage, kicking off a week of thought-provoking lectures, workshops, and conversations. I also got to design and animate all the speaker bumpers, as well as a number of session background animations for the conference. In addition to being shown at the conference in Vancouver, the pieces were also streamed live to theaters all over the world.
