Select quote: “To express the scope of programming, T+Co created logo animations using six broad themes that reflect CCTV9’s range in natural history, human endeavor, illumination, arts, progress, and infrastructure. From the humid serenity of a bamboo forest just after the rain to the brand new Rem Koolhaas designed CCTV headquarters in Beijing, each ID allows the new multi-faceted cube logo to define its material properties in compliment to its environment.”
Plans are in development for coming back to Europe in Spring of 2018 with the current top contender host city of Barcelona.
