N.E.R.D. Concept boards
Layout design and typography for an animated film written by the band N.E.R.D.
Working in collaboration with Devin Flynn, Peter Girardi and Todd James, we proposed a neo-psychedelic look for the animated film. Our inspiration was a mixture of early psychedelic animation such as Yellow Submarine, Heavy Traffic, and Filmations Jackson Five cartoon. Working with the character design and other elements by Todd James and Devin Flynn, we visualized different locations such as outer space, a suburban neighborhood as well as a collage of the history of music.
