TV Set Design for Wayne State University
This is an image of a simple TV set design for Wayne State University, set up in the front of our shop (Which will one house our offices. Note drywall studs). This simple, but attractively chromatically minimal set was created as a backdrop for a college broadcast in a way that will be extremely versatile.
The set design principle for this particular broadcast is to lack color in the set surfaces; rather to provide the hue and vibrancy with lighting. Using this technique, any type, style, or subject of broadcast can be identified with color and quick temporary graphic applications with something removable like velcro.
Set Design Materials
This set is mainly PETG; it is the same material used in plastic soda bottles. On this material, we have applied white or silver translucent vinyl, completely covering the surface to add variation to both transparency and color. Otherwise, the wall base skins are a silvery laminate, and the 1″ square steel tube frames are powder coated silver.
