BBC Broadcast has designed the on-screen identity for the BBC America Comedy Live series, using an animated sequence of microphones to introduce British comedians. The microphone cables form shapes that represent the comedians’ journey to the US, including a plane, a map of the UK and the Statue of Liberty. BBC Broadcast creative director Steven Aspinall oversaw the designs. The first idents will go on air tomorrow alongside the BBC America broadcast of Dylan Moran’s Monster show at The Village Theatre in New York.
