So, it was first time I was asked to make a redesign of TV channel title system (interface). That was a challenge to me, because it was no help from the side, like it was sometimes before. The main feature of the new system should become a revealing style of titles to expose the image behind them. So, it was a main problem and a new feature.
After the research, that I’ve made, I found out, that the main trend of this period is transparency multiplied by flat design, that flashing everywhere. The expansion of it appears almost everywhere, from facebook to Apple iOS. I decided to make a variation of this style applied to the Moscow TV channel title system.
First of all, I must say, that we got acquainted with Oleg and “StarBox Production” crew thanks to a completely different project. Once Sergey Yumakov shared a freelance project with me, that required some editing with titles. Working in collaboration, I figured out: the crew is working at a high quality level; therefore we decided to continue working together and to cooperate in the future.
Later on Oleg needed my professional skills in Art Directing and we shook hands.
To be honest I’m not found of this music genre, but I did my best. At our first meeting connecting to the project we’ve arranged the mood of the music video, started storyboard sketching and talked over shooting of several complicated frames, where the help of Mikhail Milashin (DOP) was absolutely necessary. After that we saw each other numerous times, discussing screenplay, modifying it here and there, making critical changes to storyboard, and after all…
Silence please, action!

After two years of successful broadcasting of Moscow 24 TV channel it was decided to launch a modified version in Moscow Subway. It became necessary to develop a logo, similar to those of Moscow 24. Also there was a task to make up a layout with additional info block to display three blocks of data. First – date and time, second – weather and air-pressure and third with main currencies exchange rates and road traffic information.
Here are some photos of the channel and its logo.

Since September 2012, users can watch Moscow 24 tv channel not only on the TV. That's fine, but we were disappointed by the fact of bad design in its first version of application. On the screenshots below you can see the new version of the application with the updated design by our team and the differences in designs before and after. Moscow 24 app allows users to read and watch news both online and on-demand.
