For us in Hypno, all sci-fi nerds, partnering up with Algorand in this unearthly opportunity was a dream project. Visualizing a whole universe and developing every bit of it, from concept to visual depiction, we were over the moon!
The exciting challenge: to produce two seasons of episodes with a common narrative unfolding the story of a space traveler wandering the galaxy of Algorand, a crypto and blockchain platform.
The first season presents us with the universe through the character’s vision, while he is preparing for his journey. The second season shows the launch and leads us to the different parts of the galaxy where Algorand takes action.
To produce a large number of videos maintaining consistency in narrative, graphics, and storytelling.
An out-of-this-world multi-seasonal video series of explainers that transports us to the Algorand dimension and creatively describes its platform's several aspects.
For the Algonaut control panel, we had to create visually distinctive screens that were consistent with the Algorand universe. The UI design was a crucial part of the creative process as it provided a foundation to build other elements. We were able to create a universe that was both visually appealing and recognizable.
In the first season, the Algonaut is planning and preparing for the launch when the time has finally come to embark on their intrepid voyage. In the second season, with the ship thoroughly checked, the space traveller is ready to take a step into the unknown.
