  • Politico 28: Class of 2021
    Politico 28: Class of 2021Politico approached me to create a series of short explainer videos for their yearly round up of the top 28 Politicians in Europe. Each video covers one category: top overall, top doer, top dreamer, and top disruptor. One item that is symbolic to each figure is used as a motif through the shorts to showcase their policies and career path. The style developed for this project is a mix of photocollage and illustration. The primary world is built on black and gray paper backgrounds and 4 spot color
