In the VICELAND documentary series, Terror, VICE founder Suroosh Alvi travels the world to investigate the origins and impact of the world's deadliest terrorist organizations: al Qaeda in Yemen, al Shabaab in Somalia, Boko Haram in Nigeria, the Tehrik-i-Taliban in Pakistan, and the Islamic State in Iraq.

Terror had a unique challenge. We needed to design an authentic product that people would be interested in watching while not 'selling', glamorizing, sensationalizing or appearing to be capitalizing on the terrible actions of the terrorists groups featured in the documentary.

For the opening of this series focused on incredibly serious subject matter, we created a dark timeline through the history of terror organizations, traveling past headlines and haunting historical scenes.
