TV Pilot: Title Design, Animation, Motion Graphics (After Effects)
Logo design (crest) and some of the many title slate concepts for comedy series pilot “MisEducation”. The gag was that the extra “S” in Miss (Miss Education being a puppet wielded by the troupe) was either not present or animated out. The school crest design was based on the “CEO” of Miss Education, Digby, and his trademark yellow vest and tie. Loosely formatted around a “standard” school crest format, the logo is imbued with more overt educational overtones through the use of the crossed pencils and stars. Yellow features prominently throughout the show in the branding, sets, and uniforms (jumpsuits) of the Miss Education actors, and so was the obvious choice with which to brand the educational enterprise. Synopsis: When Youtube wonder/Gen-Y slacker Colin is busted for defrauding Centrelink, he is forced to take a job at Miss Education, a touring educational puppet theatre company, to repay his debt. But his initial plan of doing as little work as possible is interrupted when he realises how incompetent and dangerous the other staff at the company are. There is the delusional CEO Digby, the fun-loving Tom, the evangelical Pauline, the fame-hungry actor William, the feisty, desperate-for-love Danae and the prickly but intelligent beauty Lily. Colin’s apathy gives way as he becomes increasingly compelled to step in and do some real educating. He soon realises that his knack for teaching is a way for him to make a genuine difference in the world – more than his viral sensations ever could.
