Stephen Hawking's The Black Hole

I collaborated with Director & Animator Will Studd, to make a short motion graphics film about Black Holes. It was all part of Professor Stephen Hawking's brilliant Reith Lecture for BBC Radio 4 - our film contains an excerpt from his full lecture, explaining his theories behind what can escape a black hole!

I provided all the graphic design for this piece, opting for a minimalist, almost retro-feel. Explaining such grand concepts required the illustration be as simple to grasp as possible!

It was an absolute pleasure to work on something so inspiring, with such inspiring people!

You can watch the animated film right here on the BBC website
