Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey Main Title Design By BBDG
The creative team at Big Block Design Group/BBDG were recognized for their main title design for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey with a Primetime Emmy® Award nomination in the category of Outstanding Main Title Design.
Inspired by Carl Sagan’s profound exploration of the universe, BBDG’s Emmy®-nominated team, creative directors Curtis Doss and Shaun Collings, visual effects supervisor Randall Smith and CG supervisor Tom Connors, produced an epic show open for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey comprised of customized CGI, live action footage and photographic elements.
A transcendent vision of the mystery of the cosmos, the main title conveys a sense of wonder and also pays tribute to the series’ legacy. The journey through the now-iconic eye bookends the initials C and S, which resolve to become the title Cosmos, the show’s branded image and a subtle and emotional homage to Sagan.
