The consumer of this show is someone that loves all things sci-fi; we needed to allude past sci-fi ideas & feel, as well as innovate visually, in order to inspire and engage the audience.

The Process

The Process

It was a long process of concept creation and iteration with Seth macfarlane and the entire art department, and lots of concept testing.  We needed to create user interfaces that not only were logical but aesthetically innovative and graceful. There are many keypads and control screens involved in the ship. Portable Keypads as well as Big control monitors needed to be visually consistent at all times and through all events of the ship travels as well as the battle and emergency modes.
