The Design Behind Pixar

Over the weekend I went to NYC to visit some art museums. I was told about the Cooper Hewitt Museum which looking it up seemed to be something I was interested in. When I walked in I found the exhibit, “Pixar: The Design of Story.” I was instantly fascinated because I had always loved the movies that Pixar created and could feel my inner child wanting to poke around at what it was all about when I walked into the room.

In there was a multitude of concept art behind the making of different movies such as Brave, Wall-E, UP, The Incredibles, Inside Out, and Toy Story. Looking at all of what went into these movies was the best part because not only did I love these movies when I was younger, as a designer I can now relate to how much work went behind it.
