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.”
