I was honored when James White of Signalnoise asked me if I could make him a cool looking “Station ID” for his upcoming art show. I love James’ retro style and have admired his work for sometime now, so I said “hell yes.”
His only direction was that I had to use his logo and that it should look like those old school network ID’s like from the late 70s and early 80s. I drew on some inspiration from two of my favorite IDs from that era and got started animating. His logo was a dream to work with and all the rainbow colors really fit the style. Very simple and very fun to animate. I had so much fun animating it, I made TWO of them. For sound design, I found some song bits that fit and screwed up the audio to give it that VHS recorded sound. They were played at his latest art show in Toronto on loop.
Thanks again to James for asking me to animate your awesome logo. I really have fun with projects like this.
