THE APPROACH

Trying to create bumpers for PBS was an interesting challenge. As a public station, PBS offered a large number of shows in a wide variety of genres to give their viewers a diverse experience all neatly packed into one station.

With such a large range of shows, the bumpers needed to be general but be anything but generic. I decided on a "PBS World" that could be neatly packed into a cardboard box. Each little element in the box could represent different genres and even call out to specific shows. Video of the box opening was incorporated to help add that feeling of the channel being neatly packaged and to create something more tangible that could be taken away.
