Epic Lloyd’s “Off the Top” Live Improv Web Series Set Design
Original Set and Logo Design for Epic Lloyd's "Off the Top" Live Improv Web Series
Create a logo and set decorations for Epic Lloyd’s live interactive improv show on YouTube, “Off the Top”.
Logo and set need to be edgy and invoke the spontaneous and fluid spirit of freestyle rapping and improv. Design also needed to represent the 3 cities participating in the show: Los Angeles, London and Tokyo.
The Who’s Line is it Anyway? style show features a team of improvisers playing games with suggestions from the live studio audience and through twitter.

The logo features a microphone design with a globe printed across the sphere. The outer edges of the globe feature cityscapes from Los Angeles, London and Tokyo. The color scheme was inspired by Epic Lloyd’s branding.
I created real-life versions of the cityscapes and microphone from the Off the Top logo. I traced the designs freehand onto foam core and used an Exacto knife to cut them out and mount them onto the flats with adhesive velcro.
