Remember Nicolas Alexander? You should. While at VFS, the Digital Design grad was on the team that made A Brief Guide About Bridesmaids, and he also joined forces with Yaniv Fridman on Miniature Rocket.
Nick graduated last August. In the seven months since, he’s been busy, and his handiwork can already be seen nationwide. That’s because he went to work for MuchMusic, and was the designer tasked with the rebranding of MuchMoreMusic, the 11-year-old offshoot of Canada’s longest-running music TV channel.
Now called simply MuchMore, the rebrand launched this week. You can see it for yourself on the MuchMore website or just by turning on your TV. (That’s channel 35 to Vancouver Shaw cable customers.)
“I spent the last three months building the visual language and designed just about every graphic element on air right now including the new MuchMore logo,” Nick explains.
“Even though I did some animation work for the relaunch,” he says, “I had the pleasure of working with one of the best animation houses in Canada, Crush, who animated most of the promo elements and I must say, did an excellent job translating my styleframes, storyboards and typography work into animation.”
As if that weren’t enough, Nick’s recently started up a new design blog called Left Brain, Write Brain with fellow grads Jamie Peterson and Jadyn Aguilar, and he’s also working on reinventing his own blog, Good Morning Stranger, with the help of grad Pablo Kraus. (As Nick says, “Network, network!”)
Oh, and he’ll be featured in the next issue of Advance Photoshop Magazine for a retro art special. Well done, Nick. Can’t wait to find out what’s next.
Update: Some spirited debate on Under Consideration’s Brand New about the redesign. Like it or hate the new logo, it’s something that’s gotten people talking. (Thanks, Matthew.)
