Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj is a weekly news and political comedy show on Netflix. The show synthesizes cutting-edge technology, sharp comedic writing, and award-winning motion graphics to immerse viewers in a shifting landscape unlike anything else on television.

Since starting with Patriot Act's very first episode in 2018, I worked with the best team in the business to create a dazzling kinetic platform that entertains, informs, and inspires.

2018-2019 Primetime Emmy Awards 
Winner, Outstanding Motion Design

Patriot Act shifted direction with the global impact of COVID-19 in Spring 2020. We redesigned the show to comply with social distancing standards and expanded our creative palette of high quality graphics in a new format.
