PBS NewsHour: Beyond The Canvas
Role: Art Director, Designer, Animator.

A new half-hour program showcases some of the nation’s leading cultural creators -- musicians, playwrights, comedians, costume designers, among many others -- who show us how they turn their visions of the world into art.​​​​​​​
Creative Director Kojo Boateng and the team at PBS NewsHour reached out to develop a refresh of the NewsHour Canvas segment. The team wanted to skew for younger viewership by developing a fresher style separate from PBS NewsHour.
