The 36 Days of Type is probably my favorite design challenge and there are a few reasons for that.
Altered Carbon is a new sci-fi TV series from Netflix. I haven't had the chance to watch any episode yet, however I've seen a lot of hype about it, in a good way. People I follow on Twitter have praised the show so it's on my watchlist. For this post I wanted to share a motion design post featuring the main titles of the show. It is simply beautiful, full of 3D and light effects. I does remind me of early 2000's depthCORE artworks. Anyways, check it out after the break.
More than 300 years in the future, society has been transformed by new technology, leading to human bodies being interchangeable and death no longer being permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the only surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned for centuries until impossibly wealthy businessman Laurens Bancroft offers him the chance to live again.
This project was shared by Nadia Tzuo, an art director based in Venice, California. Via Behance.
