It was right before the Year 2000. The marketing team decides to produce a new media kit. I was responsible for overall creative not only Online digital design, But also Print material of MTV's online division. I came up with a visual concept for the new dawn of the youth market and culture. It was a mix of Propaganda style bold visual, Russian constructivism, Revolution, and Music.
