ARD 1 – 1984

17 11 2014

talking about the ‘good old days’ a short time ago I realized it is already 30 years ago that I worked on the the ARD 1 ( the german 1.tv-station ) logo-design. cg in those days was nearly unknown in germany. during my frequent visits in L.A. I had seen a lot of the development in computer generated images and I was fascinated by it ( that should change over the years! ). so I introduced the idea of a cg-logo to the german television guys and the ARD 1 logo became the first cg-logo in germany, and probably the first one produced at such high costs. below are my early designs, a rough story board and some very precise keyframes for the production at CRANSTON CSURI in columbus.

unfortunately I never met CORNY COLE, I know though some of his work, especially what he did for RAGGEDY ANN AND ANDY. RICHARD WILLIAMS worked very often with CORNY, he described to me his crazy style, doing most of his sketches with a simple ballpoint pen and never using any reference. DICK described him as a genius. the illustrations below might have been for a personal project, CORNY had in mind, or it was one of those collaborations with DICK WILLIAMS, anyway, DICK gave me these xeroxes about 30 years ago.

over the past years I have posted several articles about the PAINTERS OF PARIS, LUIGI LOIR ( 1845 – 1916 ), JEAN BERAUD ( 1849 – 1936 ), EUGENE GALIEN-LALOUE ( 1854 – 1941 ), EDOUARD-LEON CORTES ( 1882 – 1969 ) and ANTOINE BLANCHARD, ( 1910 – 1988 ), and the genre PARISIANISM. here now is the first part of a series about EDOUARD-LEON CORTES, and his beautiful paris city views.
