One of the coolest animated features I’ve seen this past year. Its been a long while since I’ve felt the compulsion to write about a piece. This seems like the right influence for a rant. 2020 and 2021 have definitely become a struggle in the creative fields. Most ad work is starting to pick-up again and creators are fire on all cylinders. This piece art director is crafted beautifully. I’m a sucker for historical animations and info-graphics.
Back at it again with our friends at Magma Capital. This time, the focus was a video aimed at changing the investing game for professional NBA and NFL athletes. We landed on an ambitious hand-drawn approach that is heavy in style and full of color. With an all-star team of designers and animators, we poured every single ounce of blood, sweat, and who knows what into this one.
” 24 teams, 184 riders, 21 stages, 3450 kilometers. “Giro D’Italia” is one of the most important world cyclist competitions. The race passes through different cities and crosses countrysides, hills and slopes, celebrating the heritage of a sport with more than 100 years of history in Italy. This is an event that moves a huge amount of fans, both cyclist enthusiasts and sport addicts, an event that has a glorious past of undertakings, Gimondi and Mercks, Coppi and Bartali, the legendary Girardengo and Pantani, are just a few examples of this great history.
Rai involved us in the production of the 2021 add, in which we decided to use a style that merges vintage with modern cycling. We wanted to combine the idea of the epic effort of a cyclist during the competition, an effort against himself and the obstacles of the environments, with a vibrant and energetic pop aesthetic that enhances the action. The suggested visual key is a reinterpretation of Roy Lichtenstein’s pop art, a very strong quote of the late 60s/early 70s glorious years.”
