Los Angeles, CA, February 12, 2008 – Buster, a conceptual design studio that specializes in motion graphics for the advertising and broadcasting industries, was retained to develop and design the “look and feel� of Discovery Communications’ new “Investigation Discovery� (ID) cable TV network, formerly the Discovery Times Channel. Buster is a division of Stun Creative; Stun Creative co-presidents Mark Feldstein and Brad Roth made the announcement. Building on its longtime history with Discovery, Stun Creative was excited to re-team with Garnsey Sloane, Supervising Producer, Discovery, for this network re-branding project. Said Roth and Feldstein,“The ‘ID’ network project was a great opportunity for us, as it truly involved every area of our company, including writing, live action production, graphic design & animation, and full scale post production and editorial, across multiple platforms. We’re especially proud of the look and feel our Buster team was able to create.� Buster’s Jonas Morganstein, Executive Creative Director & Executive Producer, and Kurt Spenser, Creative Director & Head of Production, said jointly, “It’s not every day you get to help create a new brand identity from scratch. We were charged with visually depicting an exciting new brand, while concurrently retaining the credibility and prestige of the established Discovery brand image. Hopefully, viewers to this new channel will become deeply engaged in the investigative process.� Previously, Buster has developed and produced the re-brands for several other cable television channels and networks, including the Food Network Primetime, and the Shop at Home Channel.
