In what only feels like a few brief moments... now an entire year now has come between that dreadful thing called 2020. While it certainly hasn't been easy, digging out of the ditches has provided some incredible experiences and memories. Here is a brief look back at some of those powerful stories and beautiful pictures created by our studio in 2021. That's a wonderful attribute of being artists... our unique ability to squelch negativity & pessimism... and optimistically focus our energy and our output on creating & making new things. We're so grateful for the continued opportunity to pursue our callings and dreams - in such a crazy world. Thank you to all of our partners, clients & collaborators for your continued trust, talents and time. Much Love, Evolve

Hosted by award-winning investigative journalist Don Van Natta, Jr., Backstory serves as a cold case for sports journalism. Throughout the series, Don peels back the layers and brings new insights to historic moments in sports. For the opening titles and graphics package, Don and the production team at Bluefoot Entertainment requested a contemporary multi-layered look that would reflect the show’s journalistic ambitions. Our team developed a show package that blends sports, investigative journalism and elements from Don Van Natta Jr.’s multi-decade career at the Miami Herald, New York Times and ESPN. The integration of live-action shots from Bluefoot, CGI elements and scans of physical articles and notes from Don’s investigation allowed for an opening title sequence that feels authentic to the Backstory brand. Subtle secondary touches such as animating several elements in reverse or building football field hash marks into a timeline serve to reinforce a nuanced, sophisticated and cohesive package.

Sebastian Maniscalco has two passions: comedy and food. His hilarious social observations and food related questions come to life in the series Well Done, produced by Levity Live, Food Network and Discovery+. Viewers follow Sebastian Maniscalco as he explores the world of food from a unique perspective, covering everything from interviews with world-famous chefs to foodies, comedians, Sebastian's family, and everything in between. ‍ Our team was fully embedded with the Levity Live production, having a hand in everything from the title sequence, transitions, lower thirds, and quirky animated in-show graphics to help bring this idea to life. With a creative brief referring to an Amalfi coast vibe, we pulled the majority of our design inspiration based on this breezy, Italian locale. Utilizing illustration and 2D animation we create a clean, but textured aesthetic, that was perfect for tying in Sebastian’s Italian roots with the overall vibe of the show.

A blank page is never really blank. There is always a customer with a need and a client who wants to fulfil a promise. That is where we start all our concepts, elbows deep in the strategy and the brief. It's our starting point for original creativity. From there its a short hop skip and a jump to scripts, storyboards too animatics and beyond!
