The Strain – FX Network


Visual identity for the final season of hit FX series The Strain, in collaboration with MATERIA and Onesize.

 

WHERE DIGITAL CRAFT MEETS HANDCRAFT

 

After creating the teaser promo for cult US show American Horror Story 6, Onesize was the logical choice to take part in – and subsequently win – the design pitch on FX-series The Strain’s fourth and final season, directed by the critically-acclaimed Guillermo del Toro.

Inspired by the series’ storyline – in which a vampire virus infects the human race – our team chose the theme of blood to visually recreate the nightmarish world of The Strain. 
Inspiration was found in surreal paintings and graphic novel-style artwork, combining objects and liquids. The search for the perfect footage of moving fluids brought us to MATERIA alias Susi Sie and Remo Gambacciani, whom we approached to collaborate on shooting live action footage of fluids.
