HYPATIA: The murder of ancient Alexandria's greatest scholar


Educational piece about the life and teaching of the famous philosopher Hypatia.

It was a thrill to collaborate with TED Ed director Biljana Labovic and educator Soraya Field Fiorio to bring together this very interesting piece from scratch. 

Following some guide lines in order to be coherent with Hypatia's history, I was given complete freedom to work in the character design and style of the animation. I created a style based in a small colour palette based in reds and oranges that highlighted the main character with a contrast of blue.

Working with TED Ed in this second ocasion has been such an amazing experience. I pretty much look forward to work on further lessons again!
