‘The Daily Show’ goes information crazyload with new look

Troika, the Hollywood-based marketing and branding agency, worked with “The Daily Show” to create a fresh look for Trevor Noah’s debut.

The look, dubbed “information crazyload,” breaks in a new direction for the show, while still feeling comfortable for viewers.

“Without any sense of priority, information goes crazy. As the news comes in, there’s no difference in importance between a cloudy day promo and a plane crashing into the Hudson. Both get alarms and graphics at the same heightened level. We demand that level of involvement and oh we get it,” writes Troika in a case study of the project.

Troika worked with the team at “TDS” to create the new opening titles, logo, icons, and in-show graphics.
