Over November, while balancing Spy vs. Spy animation for Buddy Systems and directing a live action music video (coming soon...), I squeezed in one more job; helping Discovery Communications with the animation for their corporate holiday card! It was a fun job, too.
They wanted an origami look that would work in iconography for several of the major channels in the Discovery family; Discovery Channel (shark), TLC (cupcake), Science Channel (rocket), ID (magnifying lens), and Animal Planet (lion). Finally, they form a dove and then a troop of doves, signifying peace for the new year. (Yes, I looked up the technical term for a grouping of doves.)
