MTV Networks International is unveiling its latest raft of idents, after commissioning 48 designers to create 170 new art breaks for MTV’s 41 channels. Under an ‘open and free’ brief, the artists have used many techniques to create the idents, including puppet animations, claymation, Flash animation, mixed-media, pixellation, hand-drawn animations and live action. The only stipulation was that all creative work had to display an MTV logo. Pictured, Once we were penguins by Andreas Paleologos and Cytoplasme by David Gautier.
