As Series Production Designer, Joel Collins created the look and design for the first 19 chapters of Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror. Dan May and Justin Hutchinson-Chatburn joined in as VFX Art Directors/Supervisors, and Rafael Martin as concept artist and matte painter. Painting Practice provided nearly all the designs and effects across the series, including the show's iconic technology and screen designs. Black Mirror has become on of the studio's cornerstone bodies of work, showcasing our unique and wholistic approach to design. Over the years this show allowed us to flex every muscle, and span design, art and technical skills across a huge array of disciplines.

Every day is a new set of challenges on this show. I’ve loved the variety, problem solving, and collaboration with the core BM Art and Painting Practice teams who help to make the magic happen.
Most recently I’ve enjoyed watching forums and blogs popping up everywhere to discuss the hidden ‘easter eggs’ we build into the graphics from other episodes. People love it!
