VIBE, by Tony Zagoraios

By | Inspiration | No Comments

We were invited to create 3 different videos to promote the Vibe Energy Drink. The main concept was the impact of Vibe’s energy on real life objects and how it transforms them to become extreme and powerful. It was a great fun blending 3d polished animation with 2d graphic design elements.

TV3 Puls – Idents Montage, by Frame.

By | Inspiration | No Comments

TV3 commissioned Frame to create a new brand identity based around a set of idents for their female biased lifestyle channel TV3 Puls. The package aligns with a update range of content on the channel. The idents sit comfortably as part of the TV3 family.

TV3 was very focused on the idea of creating an identity package that reflected the feel of the channel rather than the content of it. They had to be abstract, clearly avoiding literal clichees and had to be all graphic. Obviously it was very important for the channel to fit into the TV3 family while still holding its own.

In order to reflect the mood of the channel we were drawn towards natural materials and textures to create something that you would love to touch and feel. At the same time we did not want to be literal so we invented fictive objects and shapes that resembled abstract interior/design objects but that clearly did not have a real-world purpose. These semi-natural objects were deliberately mixed with all-synthetic CG objects which were then arranged into still-life-esque compositions.

We decided to base each ident around abstract concepts such as, a breath of fresh air, opening up, socializing, attraction, and balance. All positive concepts that could serve as the driving idea behind each ident.

We wanted to create a unique look that was cutting edge and aspirational with (wo)Man at the center of the idea.

Xbox ~ Motion Brand Identity, by ManvsMachine

By | Inspiration | No Comments

When Microsoft launched the Xbox One they commissioned Man vs Machine to design their global motion brand identity. The Xbox logo animation is one of their most iconic brand elements and our task was to translate their new logo into a full 3D brand language, with this item being the long form brand expression.

A key aim was communicate how the brand has made the transition from core gamers to people who love music, television, films and apps. It’s evolving towards broad entertainment. Xbox has become a premium experience.

As a result we wanted to play on the idea that Xbox is constantly reinventing itself. The brand development film focused on a rhythmic self-generating X; a dynamic spherical form which simulated the evolving nature of the brand. We designed the resolve to feel clean and effortless, seamlessly folding together multiple layers into the logo.
