According to Deadline.com The Walking Dead’s Season 3 premiere now ranks as the most-watched drama telecast in basic cable history. The landmark episode saw the debut of the show's all new main title sequence produced by yU+co. Check it out!
More than a decade ago, OFFF was born as a post-digital culture festival, a meeting place to host contemporary creation through an in depth programme of conferences, workshops and performances by the most relevant artists of our time. Today, OFFF is a way of understanding art. A way of life. Evolving and transforming.
Our very own Designer and Art Director, Etsuko Uji, was interviewed by Digital Hollywood University, school of digital communications in Japan as an inspiration to current and prospective students. Be sure to check out the wonderful things she had to say about becoming a designer when her interview goes live on their site, http://www.dhw.ac.jp/en/ in June.
As we head into the Summer blockbuster season, no venue is more famous for red carpet premieres, flashing camera bulbs, and celebrity hand-print ceremonies than the world famous Grauman's Chinese Theater. Check out the new logo that yU+co designed for the beloved Hollywood landmark!
yU+co. won a 2011 PromaxBDA Gold award for Network Logo Design. This remarkable distinction was received for the design and animation of Showtime Network's "Energy" Logo. Many thanks to our friends at Showtime for giving us such a fantastic opportunity!
yU+co. took home the Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title and Graphic Design. The honor was given for our work on the opening title sequence for Dora The Explorer's Birthday Special. We had a great time working with Nickelodeon on this one, and we're thrilled to have this amazing recognition for it!
Check out this hilariously ironic music video directed by Michel Gondry and edited by yU+co. Performed by The Living Sisters, "How Are You Doing?" is a super upbeat song about three women talking nonchalantly on the phone as a series of increasingly absurd catastrophes happen all around them. Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow and stay cheery!
If 3D is the next step in media, then yU+co. is already ahead in the game. Inspired by the technique of 3Ality Digital's unique camera systems, yU+co illustrates how each light of stereoscopic metadata amalgamates to form striking visual information such as the 3Ality logo itself. We hope you have your fashionably futuristic 3D glasses handy for a gander at our anaglyph result. If not, we've got a full color non-stereo version for you slackers. Enjoy!
Many attendees loved having the Promax/BDA conference back in L.A., and now there's talk it will come back again the year after next. If you didn't make it there, you missed out on a lot of cool parties and great seminars. Garson was one of the speakers for "Leaders in Design" and created his own little buzz with his infamous "fart" animation. It certainly became a hallway conversation piece, even with the women in the crowd. Requests are still pouring in for copies of the video, so for all you foolish fart fans who couldn't enough of it the first time, here is Garson's Art of the Fart.
When yU+co. was given the task of setting the tone to the charmingly crude comedy Hot Tub Time Machine, we knew that we had a lot of work to do... a lot of really, really fun work. In what can only be described as a history lesson on acid, photo collages incorporating classic art, stock photos, and personal snapshots celebrate hot tubs through the ages.
To top off the film, the closing title sequence pays homage to Motley Crue's "Home Sweet Home". The poppy humor of Rob Corddry's song cover is playfully accented by the 80's inspired graphics.
