Crush for Comedy Central

Viacom enlisted the help of Crush to create Comedy Central’s summer idents.

Crush took the brief and put a furry spin on it by devising the ‘Animals on Holiday’ concept, an idea that involved satire-like high fashion photography involving 9 animals and recreating the Comedy Central logo with everything from laser etched sausages to sculpted rabbit poo.

The idents air in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East but you can take a look at them here.

Nathan Smith Illustrates the Constellations

Nathan Smith was commissioned by the award-winning Canadian design agency, Target, to produce five illustrations for a new 360-degree Newfoundland and Labrador tourist board website.

The brief required the illustrations to have a soft transparent feel without too much detail. The five images, a Viking ship, the tail of a whale, a compass, a fossil and a hiker were sculpted in Zbrush, deliberately understated and softly rendered in Photoshop.

Visitors to the website are encouraged to select one or more of the five constellations visible in the night sky to begin their journey. As they scroll over a constellation the image becomes clearer, a sound is heard and the link takes them to the subject page.
