- UK & ICELAND
Channel 4 in-house creative agency, 4Creative and ManvsMachine commissioned Jason Bruges Studio as Production Designers for the new More 4 live-action idents for the channel, and most recently the Christmas idents shot in Iceland.
The studio created the production design, build and installation across 4 different locations including 2 outdoor and 2 indoor sites. With just 4 weeks from commissioning to installation the studio drafted in production help from Middlesex University. All of the production was completed in the studio’s workshop in Old Street, London.
The re-brand is centred round a bold, flexible logo that morphs through a series of flips, folds and reveals. The colour palette reflects the vibrant nature of interiors, food culture, fashion and other contemporary lifestyle programming. Live-action idents see the brand break out into the real world in the form of mechanical ‘flippers’. The installations inhabit environments from a domestic staircase to an abandoned fishing boat in Dungeness.
