This new series for Animal Planet showcases different endangered wild species in their various worlds. the design template provided needed to have a very changeable series of animations, for numerous fact file screens, in addition to the opening logo and identity. With designer Cadin Batrick, we turned around the design and element production in record time to make an accelerated air date.
This 2 hour special for the Animal Planet is slated to be their biggest premiere special for the year. Working with AP creatives and production company JWM, I directed the design for the show overall, including a gigantic package of graphic deliverables. While Cadin Batrack and I focused on designing the various types of graphics, we passed off our designs to Animal Planet, a Baltimore-based animation studio for production of the many final elements.
String Theory developed the identity and show open for this spin-off series of Animal Planet’s massive hit “The Zoo.”
After a string of hit series, Animal Planet asked for an identity for a 2 hour special Animal Cops show. It was fun to re-examine the subject matter after a year or so, and see what new design elements we could bring to the table for the 2 hour special episode.
Having done the Identity and main title sequence for Animal Planet’s hit show Animal Precinct, The network made a spin-off called Animal Cops. This show became such a big hit, they decided to template it to different cities every year… Detroit, Houston, and soon to be San Francisco.
