Curtis Baigent is doing smart things with simple visual devices and a playful reuse of old school gamer/sign painter type. His latest piece of creative that he directed, art directed and designed as part of studio Les Télécréateurs is a title sting for France 5’s new archeology show “totally randomly” titled Archéologie. Aside from a bright, smart and engaging 30 second film, Curtis provides developmental shots and individual frames that prove the work’s graphic mettle by working as well as a still as a piece of moving image.
The New Zealand-born, Paris-based self-styled “sweet child o’design” has a wider portfolio just as worthy of your eyeballs with his reel a very convenient place to start – a treat of applied design in animation, film and curious typographic campaigns.
