As our last Clicktrip of the year, we traveled across the island of Manhattan to CNN’s Headquarters in Hudson Yards.
Here, we finally got to see our studios up close and personal!
At Hudson Yards, we designed four studios used for seven shows that are currently airing on CNN. These studios took around a year and a half from start to finish.
We toured each studio to see how changing graphics, reorienting desks, and resetting lights can be modified to fit each specific show.
We also had some time to goof around on set.
We tried our chops as very serious journalists (while appreciating the impeccably designed lighting and sets, of course).
We found the best camera angles… Watch out Anderson Cooper!
These CNN projects are very close to our hearts because every single person on the Clickspring team had a hand in the process.
Thanks to CNN for letting us explore our creations in real life!
On Sunday December 8th, ten extraordinary people took the stage at CNN’s 2019 Heroes Gala. CNN Heroes is one of our favorite recurring projects because we get to see first hand how the nominees have helped change the world in positive ways.
This year’s winner, Freweini Mebrahtu, has dedicated her life to keeping women and girls in school by working to remove the cultural stigma around menstruation in parts of the developing world.
Under a starry replica of the night sky, we used several LED screens of various sizes to highlight each nominee and their important work. Check out more information on the 2019 Heroes and see our set in action here.
Congratulations to all ten honorees; we already can’t wait for next year!
