We designed all the credits of the series as well as all the motion graphics for the 10 episodes. It was fun to be able to create a whole 'look and feel' from scratch. To make references to a computer terminal and programming languages, we set the titles in a monospaced font and used lots of typical symbols such as lines of dots or >>. We created a font for the series and many elements like icons, buttons, etc...
design process / style frames
Both pre and post production was handled by Mikros. We designed loads of fictive websites, apps, logo's and new social media interfaces during preproduction in various styles, from a radio station broadcast app, to porn sites and fake (t)witter profiles.
To ensure a consistent styling, as we were working in a team, we designed our own eLegal typeface with icons we could use in post production. We made the font in a light, regular and bold version, for flexibility in small sizes.
