Broadcast Design: MTV VMAs 2017
The Moonman represents MTV’s spirit: choosing to go into the unknown and break new ground. For the 360 campaign, the moonman served as a conceptual device linking the stars, audience, and event to history rich with surprise and wonder. Enlisting the explorative lens of David LaChapelle and Floria Sigismondi, all media was saturated color and spectral moments. 
Specs: An internally developed concept, creative direction was spread across all digital, motion, social, and print deliveribles leading up to and including the event itself. Thank you: marketing, animators, creatives, designers, and producers
