Behind the ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ design
Fast Company’s Co.Design blog went behind the set design of CNN’s latest show, “Piers Morgan Tonight.”
“Everybody wanted it to be iconic, but not King-like,” said Jim Fenhagen of Jack Morton.
Fenhagen started to play with that, adding dimension to the matrix of lines and colors, mixing white squares with a blue background. Along the way, he discovered if he put glass in front of an LED light, it turned the light into a Mondrian-like square. It was genius! He started building layers from that, placing color where he wanted it, integrating it with graphic animation.
