“Design Squad Nation” Animations


Emmy Award-winning kids engineering series from WGBH.

Albinson Design created science and engineering animations for season three of the popular PBS Kids series “Design Squad,” working in the style established in the previous two seasons.

For series reboot “Design Squad Nation,” we were able to take the animation style in a new and more colorful direction.

Each show also had a science animation that illustrated one of the kids’ projects, or the scientific principles behind it. Our work on these combined After Effects and Maya, dynamics, particles, fluid simulation, cloth and more.

We also created an opening title that incorporated original artwork and animation with cutout footage from the show, and ended on an earth zoom sequence that was customized for each location of the 13 episodes.
