1. Styleframes
Under the creative direction of Aanvik Singh and art direction of Marly Koven.
The design team this year have three main deliverables. Styleframes for the title sequence, social media visuals, and event presentation card in loop. 
Styleframe production time: 8 weeks, 5 time zones, 9 designers (including me)
Below is the full storyboard. We are only designing the colored scenes.​​​​​​​
My Styleframe Iteration
The scenes I made are 27a, 27b, and 28. This scene pays homage to the oscilloscope artists in the motion media history. So I look into many references on how the oscilloscope work. And finally came up with a cleaner final sequence.
Old versions
I made a graph to show the animation team how the animation could be done:

2. IG Grid
Design & Animation
Creative Direction
The creative direction of the Instagram grid design is to create a 3x3 grid that both looked designed individually and collectively. 
Production time Roughly two weeks from concept to animation.
Ideation (Bottom left picture)
I had 3 directions when I start ideating the grid design. I focused on simple black and white shapes for the 3x3 first and look at the grid individually to make sure they all looks graphically appealing. The directors finally picked the first concept.

Communication is majority done in slack, miro, and google doc.
But I made a short comic to make people who do CoMotion for first time feel better :)
