WICS Springfield, Ill., was nominated for an Emmy for excellence in set design.
Designed by Devlin Design Group, the Sinclair-owned ABC affiliate launched its new HD set in December 2012. Dan Devlin, creative director of the design group, says he’s excited his company is part of the success.
“By keeping in mind our client’s need for a more modern and versatile environment, we created a news set that is fresh and contemporary, mixing new technology and design seamlessly while providing WICS with a multitude of storytelling venues,” he says.
The set combines warm wood and stone textures, sleek metallics mixed with modern technology and LED lighting.
