Vice News wins Outstanding Graphic Design and Art Direction

Winners of the News categories of the 42nd Annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards were announced recently by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and Vice News was the winner of Outstanding Graphic Design and Art Direction.

The 2020 Iowa Brown & Black Presidential Forum winning team was Ana Simões (Senior Creative Director and Graphic Designer), Kazuyuki Ishii (3D Designer), Kris Cave and Joyce N. Ho (Motion Designers).

I particularly enjoy the blunt cut outs – the speakers’ portraits with pointed hand gestures. The overall effect is it almost comedic. The bold graphic type, composition and colours – black, white, red – reminds me of Soviet propaganda graphics from the early 1900’s.


What the motion/trailer here.
