If you’ve seen even a single frame of Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, you know that our Production Designer, Kristan Andrews, is some kind of genius. She has imbued the show with a unique warmth and glow that flies in the face of every other loud, brash, obnoxious kid TV show out there.
The heart and spirit of Normal Street is felt and reflected in Kristan’s every set, every design. I’ve been watching Kristan at work for two years, and I still find myself completely enraptured with each new episode. From the insanity of Ranger’s cheeseburger bed to the glorious jewel-tones and dramatic flourishes of a pirate play, our show owes so much of its inventive signature look to Kristan.
Please check out the in-depth article “Nostalgic Television in a Digital World” in the November-December 2015 issue of the Art Directors Guild magazine Perspective, all about Kristan’s approach to designing our show.
