– Research and write about E4/ Noah Harris

e4-boat

Noah Harris is the man behind the latest E4 identity. Producing wierd and wonderful idents which include a Hotel room which turns into a swamp with sheep and ufo’s flying around. Another shows a giant octopus coming out of a beach hut and a teddy going past fishing in the sand. “It was a case of thinking, ‘it would be amazing to actually do that on set'”- Noah
The yellow pig (above) was a gift given to Noah by his grandma and it features in every ident, linking them all together.

– Colour research/ Colour associations

Kuler is a free online application create by Adobe, which allows you to experiment quickly with color variations and browse thousands of themes from the Kuler community. You can upload a picture into Kuler and it will generate a colour scheme from it and give you exact CMYK, RGB and web colour values. Kuler.adobe.com
