TV-series vignettes – their evolution, our inspiration


From catchy theme songs to cheesy photo montages; from the golden days of Friends to the high-budget production of Daredevil. Vignettes from TV series actually have the power to decide whether we pick up the remote to flip the channel, or keep our eyes glued to the screen.

Today, TV-series vignettes have evolved to become a one-minute art piece, complete with an epic soundtrack, advanced filming techniques, and impressive CGI. And given the worldwide popularity of these series, the vignettes themselves have become an inspiration for many artists, designers and of course, the advertising world.

We see many ads across various media that are heavily influenced by the art direction used in certain TV shows, and here’re some of the print ads that we’ve picked out. Can you guess the TV series these have been inspired by?
