Crash Nebula Posters






Here's two different posters I did back when Crash was in development at Nickelodeon. They were only done to help start some buzz and sell the show. I tried my hand at creating some logos which is always fun. We ended up using the upper-most right one on the title-card for the episode.

You designed these logos too? Wow. Nice work! I can count on your blog for inspiration. Thanks!

Very nice Ben, the colors and design is just amazing. I was thinking... Why don't you post a "how to" on how to sell a project to a television network, Nickelodeon for example. A kind of step by step, when you have some time, of course.

Hey Tancredo,

I would love to do a step by step of how to sell a show, but I've never done it! Crash was a show developed and sold by Butch Hartman and Steve Marmel. I just got a lucky break and got to work on the design style, (along with Steven Silver) once the idea was greenlit. I've never really pitched a show but once my comic "Seaweed" gets done I might try shopping it around. Thanks for the kind words, though.

Hey, man. Will Crash be produced? It looks like it would make a pretty cool cartoon series.

 
At 9:17 AM, Blogger Ben Balistreri said...

Jeepers, nope. It only got made into a pilot episode bu didn't focus test well. Therefore no series. How sad.
