According to a release, Sagmeister teamed with Brand New School, a vertically integrated production company and design studio, to develop an animated storyline, which was broadcast on cable television in Lisbon, Portugal, and is set to continue airing across Europe weeks to come.
“It was such a pleasure to see the identity we created together with EDP become alive through the magic of Brand New School, not only were the results lovely but the process getting there also absolutely enjoyable,” Stefan Sagmeister says in a press release.
For BNS, the project team featured founder and executive creative director Jonathan Notaro, art director Christopher Palazzo, executive producer Devin Brook, producer Derek Macleod and an illustrious team of designers and artists. The animation workflow involved creating vivid illustrated scenes from EDP’s new branding identity created by Sagmeister art director and designer Jessica Walsh along with others created by BNS. “Bringing life-like behavior to the deceptively simple geometric system created by Sagmeister, Inc. was a fun challenge,” Palazzo explains. “The scope of this system is absolutely astounding. A graphic system this rich and smart can do anything, as shown in the final piece. Stefan and his team were an absolute dream to work with.”
