During my role as Creative Lead at Territory Studio, working in collaboration with Production Designer Lisa Hall and Head of Graphics Chris Rosser, I art directed, designed and animated brand logos, on-set screen graphics and interactive displays for Impossible Planet and Crazy Diamond, two episodes that required screen interfaces for Philip K Dick based TV series, Electric Dreams.
Impossible Planet - Branding
A number of designs I created for the corporate branding of Astral Dreams, a space tourism agency featured in Impossible Planet. The mark was based on inspiration of the 1950’s atomic era, where early designs for the space vessel were initially driven from. The design for the vessel changed but the mark was liked and the general design for the rest of the set was still very much inspired by a ‘retro-future’. The Mark on the right was chosen for the clothing as seen below and the mark on the left was used for screen based mediums.
Impossible Planet - Interface Designs, Ship Systems
Lisa Hall designed a beautiful flight deck that featured a large array of screens that required ship diagnostics and flight controls. The Art Direction is designed to feel rudimentary, utilitarian and very much based on early screen interfaces like MS-DOS.
Impossible Planet - Interface Designs, Upper Deck
In contrast to the MS-DOS inspired ship systems screens, the upper deck screens were designed to be more accessible to the everyday user. These screens featured in the viewing deck, passenger cabins, pilots office and were used to assist with a number of story beats. The art direction is inspired by train ticket machines found around London, rudimentary, simple in colour pallet but capable of displaying content and easy-to-understand buttons/options.
