Adam Savage Speaks to an Expanse Graphic Designer!

Viewers of The Expanse know well the Savage Industries storyline, introduced in season 3. While on set, Adam Savage talks with Kim Sison, first assistant graphic designer, who not only designed the show’s iteration of his company’s logo, but many of the signs, labels, patches and brands you see as well! Watch The Expanse seasons 1 through 4 on Amazon Video.

  1. of all the expanse videos, i think i love this one the most. what an amazing job to have!

    (also, it’s funny how i am 100% with adam when it comes to adoring futura. but where adam favours futura bold so much, i like pretty much every weight except semi-bold and bold. they look a bit too much like the ugly step-children to me, not having either the elegance of light to medium, or the surprising clarity of ultra-bold.)

  2. Awesome to see a graphic designer. I too create graphics for film and tv and recognise a lot of the methods she uses when time (and budget) is not on your side. I also have tons of files with generic illustrations, icons, images and ‘leftover’ designs that can help me to speed up the process.

    I’d also love to see more about how things get developed from script to prop when screenplays usually aren’t that descriptive about props. To see different approaches to these processes and how to stay in service of the story/world that’s being created.
