Colorscope Purple
I worked with the incredibly talented team at Buck NYC on this episode: "Inspired by our love for The Purple One we chose the last color on the spectrum, a marriage of opposites, a mixture between the hottest color and the coldest." This episode received a Vimeo Staff Pick and was featured on Stash Magazine.

CNN Colorscope series
Colorscope is a multi award-winning series on CNN exploring our perception of color and its use across cultures, one shade at a time. I had this idea for a series about color as there was nothing like it focused on facts, and I thought animation would be the perfect medium for it! Each film is written and narrated by the BAFTA-nominated broadcaster and academic, Dr. James Fox. We usually accompany each film with an article on that delves deeper into the facts.

Get it? Got it! Good.
