2016 Design Montage
Mr. Wonderful specializes in concept-driven motion design, branding and effects for television, film, interactive and environmental media. The studio was founded in 2005 on the simple principle that everything can be enhanced with good design. We love the creative process. We hate boilerplate. And we look forward to making something wonderful with you. Here’s a look at some of our recent work.
Truth & Power Launch Promo
In this provocative animated promo for their new show Truth and Power, Pivot TV wanted to capture the essence of the modern-day tools employed to expose injustice and enact change: cameras, laptops, mobile phones and the like. The 10-part series highlights the stories of ordinary people going to extraordinary lengths to expose large-scale injustice. The spot was built as a donut so that footage content can be inserted to tease specific episodes.
When Puma asked the question “What are you training for?” who better to answer than New England Patriots Wide Receiver Julian Edelman. And when NBC Sports needed an idea and execution to tie it all together, Mr. Wonderful answered the call. In this explosive ten second disruptor for Puma we designed and directed Julian performing a variety of workout routines in a stylized 3D stadium environment.
Stephen Colbert does all his own stunts in this classic show open. Mr. Wonderful concepted, directed and designed the full on-air identity for The Colbert Report’s triumphant transition to HD.
Work like a Network
As one YouTube viewer wrote, “Microsoft needs to make all of their commercials this good.” When Microsoft asked us to create a high-concept film showcasing the interconnected world of business we took off around the globe to deliver.
The custom data visualization device we designed was the finishing touch on this high-value production.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians
Mr. Wonderful crafted this launch campaign around the power of Family, their Strength, Unity and the Love the Kardashian’s have for one another. Our use of bold type against stark white backdrops combined with sound bytes further emphasizes their family dynamic. We also created a digital component including Social Headers for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. Marketing banners, E! Now App skins, as well as VOD/TVE and Affiliate deliverables.
