Atlanta-based creative studio Awesome Inc. collaborated with FX Networks to create the episodic graphics package for season three of FX’s vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows.
The package consists of a myriad of deliverables, including title cards, interstitials, billboards, social graphics and more. Animated smoke and dust swirl and travel throughout the assets, enchanting viewers with fleeting images of magic, bats, skulls, and of course, vampires complete with coffins. Clean design, traditional hand-drawn cel animation, and a limited but bold color palette were used to reflect the show’s mysterious but playful tone.
Executive produced and directed by Taika Waititi, season three of What We Do in the Shadows premiered on Thursday, September 2. New episodes air every Thursday on FX, streaming the next day on FX on Hulu.
