Award-winning production and animation studio Elastic recently joined forces with the team behind TNT’s King & Maxwell to deliver a set of elegant, noir-inspired titles for the new detective series. King & Maxwell follows the adventures of its titular heroes, a pair of disgraced Secret Service agents turned Private Eyes. Led by Art Director Henry de Leon, the design team at Elastic creates a neatly plotted animation that conveys the premise of the series in only 60 seconds and an economical palette of four colors.
