Between 2015 and 2016 I spent about a year creating user interfaces and interactions for the feature film “What Happened to Monday”.
The list was long, and included defining the design and art direction for a suite of tech that spanned a command console, screens, bracelets, tablets and mirrors. Alongside VFX Supervisor Bryan Jones and a talented team of artists, we produced 150 shots.
I’m so grateful for the having had the opportunity to help bring Tommy Wirkola’s vision to the screen. Congrats to the whole production and everyone involved.

Coming in early on in pre-production allowed me to craft a back-story for our in-world technology. It was important that it feel like it was published by a single corporation, and needed a strong utilitarian visual style to complement the rest of the production design and story beats.
Having the historical reference and narrative to inform design choices is always valuable. Taking the additional time to plot this step was a great opportunity to do some fun world building and improve the overall outcome.
