VICE Investigates is a documentary series that takes a deep dive into topics overlooked by cable news. This series featured episodes about hip-hop in Russia, fires in the Amazon, tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and the rise and fall of K-pop stars. The creative team forwent using a standard opening sequence and created a unique color palette that overlaps footage from the segment to make a topical introduction.
The two-tone color palette adds flair to a barrage of footage that evokes the topics' intensity. For instance, the K-pop intro uses a bubblegum combination of pink and green for a look that's sweet and surreal.
