Los Angeles, CA, Nov. 11, 2008 â€“ Award winning agency Stun Creative and its motion graphics division, Buster Design, have just completed a major network rebrand for GSN. Stun Creative co-presidents Mark Feldstein and Brad Roth made the announcement.
Specifically, Buster developed and produced the entire â€œlook and feelâ€? of all promotional and navigational elements that will appear on-air, and which will be incorporated across all media platforms starting on November 6th. (To see this work, please visit:
Feldstein & Roth point out, â€œGames are about having fun. And we wanted to make sure that everything about our designs expresses that mantra. The new GSN identity system has been designed to inspire playfulness.â€? Additionally, the logo is designed to visually recall a game board. It can be used in its native form, or it can be customized thematically for holidays, programming stunts — any event that will have meaning for GSNâ€™s audience.
Lead by Busterâ€™s Executive Creative Director & Executive Producer Jonas Morganstein, the design team created two versions of the new on-air GSN rebranding — a bright, 2D graphic daytime version, and a more 3D, glossy nighttime version. Buster created all promotional graphic elements, including IDs, promos, bumpers, menus, lower thirds, bugs, etc.
Said Morganstein, â€œThe new on-air package revolves around nine moveable puzzle piece elements. The fun comes from how these simple shapes come to life and expand into a rich world of playfulness and fun that everyone can relate to. Some of the best games involve a simple set of rules and then the fun begins. As we animated the graphics, we wanted the network viewer to feel like they are playing a game. The goal is to bring to life the tagline â€˜Play Every Dayâ€™ – taking viewers to another place, a place where games provide an exciting combination of challenge and fulfillment.â€?
