Nick Jr. Brand Refresh 2018

Led an internal design team and an external studio Blur at Nick Jr. Worked closely with the VP of Design to shape the art direction and design for the brand refresh project. Created and directed a broad spectrum of content including style guide, typography system, compositing, 3D animation, and cel animation.  Redesign the existing 2D logo into a modern 3D render, put a lot of playful spins on it and created the environment where children and show characters play in it cheerfully.

I came up with a layout system for Nick Jr. logo page  that designers can replace icons represent different shows easily.
