Pablo Lozano · Animation & Design


Earlier this year I had the honour of working with Nexus Studios on this countdown for three screens commissioned by Google and directed by Nicolas Ménard. It kicked off their 2018 Google I/O Developer Conference, which took place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View. From the playful series of transitions between numbers from the Google Sans typeface (drawn frame by frame in Adobe Animate), I animated sections 10 to 7, 5 to 4, and 2 to the end.

The soundtrack was composed and performed by Tom Haines of Brains & Hunch, featuring all sorts of percussions, including Chinese toms toms, Chinese cymbals, gongs, African log drums, skulls, cowbells, a variety of mallets and a 6 foot tall taiko drum.
