Clients: PBS / Nutopia
We created over 70 animated graphic sequences for the six-part series How We Got To Now. The show is presented by popular American science author Steven Johnson and explores the legacy of great ideas. Each hour-long episode explores a different theme - from cold to light, sound and glass - explaining the stories behind key developments in that field and their influence on modern products, sciences and technologies. A co-production between PBS and Nutopia broadcast on PBS & BBC.
The team share how it came together in this interview at Creative Review.
