I first heard about the Museum of Design in Atlanta when they had the "To a T" t-shirt show in the fall. It turned out to be an amazing show with a lot of my favorite local designers represented (Dr. Blade, Epidemik Coalition, Pecan Pie Couture) as well as some others from around the country. Well the t-shirt show has come down and it sounds like the Museum of Design is outdoing themselves. This Thursday, February 1st from 5-9pm, is the opening for their new show "Cartoon Network: Design at Play". I have always been a fan of Cartoon Network's programs but never thought that their design work would get the credit it deserves. I suggest that everyone check out this show as they appear to be going all out.
"This multi-media exhibit—featuring wide samples of print advertising and marketing materials, billboard executions, premium design, on-air spots, Websites and online games, each designed to support the network’s original animated programming—will spotlight the local talents of Cartoon Network’s renown team of designers, writers, animators, producers and graphic artists."
"Spanning three full galleries at MODA, this first-time partnership also will explore the process of creating an animated television program from doodles and 3-D models to styleguides and storyboards. Futhermore, Design at Play will review the “holistic” approach to branding and promotion through multimedia platforms, explore product design and packaging for retail, and highlight creative examples of more traditional advertising."
