THE RISE OF NIRVANA

MOTION GRAPHICS

ABOUT

A 45-second motion graphic showcasing a brief history of the rise of the punk-rock band Nirvana. Kurt Cobain, being the frontman and lead singer of Nirvana, left an influential mark in Generation X before his death in 1994. 

CONCEPT

A monochrome palette with vibrant yellow found on Nirvana’s iconic logo is used to represent the band’s image. Big fonts are placed strategically to emphasize parts of the story and graphics are moving in sync with the song, Nirvana’s “Come As You Are”, playing in the background.
