Netflix Transgender Awareness Week

In 2020, Netflix commissioned Kate and Studio Moross to create ten portraits of transgender talent featured on the platform to celebrate Transgender Awareness Week. All the portraits were of actors featured in Netflix productions, including Laverne Cox and Lachlan Watson. One of Kate’s goals is to use their voice to help others expand beyond gender…

Spice World

In 2019 Studio Moross joined Creative Director Lee Lodge as part of a core creative team to manage the art direction and design across the screens and stage for the Spice Girls UK and Ireland tour. Since at the time, the Spice Girls had not been on stage in seven years, this tour was significant.…

Kate Moross

Life can be dull, boring, maybe even a little sad. What if I told you there was a designer that did the opposite of that. That their work is filled with every shape and color, you could imagine. Endless jumbles of words, squiggles, and paint spills. Would you be interested? Let me introduce you to…

God of War (2010)

In the god of war opening sequence has many elements that gives the viewers an idea of what the game is going to be about. From the start of the opening the tone of the game can be felt from the music and how the narrator is talking. The music that was also chosen gives…

First and maybe the most important element used is sound. The…

Yogi Bear 2010

An element that is used is the use of sound. After watching the movie the audio and elements complement each other very well. The movements and visual elements are timed perfectly. The sound effects of the movie say the mood is very animated. I say animated because Yogi Bear and Boo Boo’s voices are very…

Wild Design: CD Cover Design

I found this CD of the British folk-rock band Fairport Convention at a local book store and was intrigued by its unique imagery.  The surrealist cover art shows off a man on a ladder making a gesture towards an enlarged ear in the sky.  The larger visual weight of the ear attracted my eye to…

Dr. Dolittle (1967)

In the opening scene to Dr. Dolittle, there are many elements that convey the mood of the movie. The upbeat and whimsical music combined with the bright colorful background gives off a happy and playful child like essence. Along with this, the colorful backgrounds allow the black silhouette animals and white lettering to stand out…
