Creative Direction Motion Design 2D & 3D Animation Video Operation

For the 2019 Skoll World Forum, we were asked to design a visual narrative and creative content that played off the Forum's theme "Accelerating Possibilities" while maintaining Skoll's overarching branding, narrative, and core values.


Every year, the Skoll Foundation holds its annual forum in Early April at Oxford University, UK to bring together social entrepreneurs from around the world. The Skoll World Forum brings together countless worldwide organizations, social entrepreneurs, leaders, educators, and activists to combat socioeconomical issues, raise awareness to various global causes, and create like-minded partnerships. 2019 marks our 3rd year working with the Skoll Foundation and was the largest Forum to date.

From early conceptualization and art direction to 2D/3D content creation, our services included a wide variety of skill sets to visualize this project.

Creative Process

Our involvement started from the very beginning, helping develop stage concepts and layouts with collaborator and production provider, Partytecture, and Skoll's in-house creative directors, Phil Collis and Gabriel Diamond. Working together, we collectively decided to proceed with a 4K resolution T-shaped LED wall to accentuate the conceptualized IMAG and live camera feeds on each of the stage's wings.

After developing the stage layout, our role was to create a visual narrative for the Forum's week-long plenaries. Playing upon the forum's theme, "Accelerating Possibilities", we set out to make the 2019 Skoll World Forum the most visually compelling year yet while bolstering the Skoll brand, narrative, and message.

Over the course of 2 months, our creative team worked in 2D and 3D animation realms to develop ever-evolving visual backdrops, speaker animations, branded logo stings, custom IMAG frames, guest musical performance content, week-of media slideshows, and intricate transitions to tie everything together as one seamless video piece and form a cohesive look for the week that advanced the forum's visual branding.

Once on site, our team programmed a flexible playback system and operated the video portion of the show utilizing 2 media servers. During the week of the event, we continued to implement new assets reflecting the week's new media content, make amendments as needed, and implement new client requests as needed using our flexibly programmed show systems.
