It’s that time of year.. Demo Reel and show off that work from last year.
State of Secrecy a new studio that has caught my eye recently. Great Job!
I read the blurb from the artist on Art Of the Title website and thought his story was pretty inspiring. This self taught animator from China deciding to take on a career in the motion industry. This sequence is well stage and has a fair bit of vfx work that feels quite real. The cat is a little off though. haha.
Could you give us a little background on yourself?

There was also a behind the scene of the project posted as well. I love these things. Artist work in varies ways and see software tools in their own creative terms.
Aspirational piece of the day for myself right here. The artist Eduard Mykhailov combined some fantastic visual components. Motion design effects like glitch can seem cumbersome at times. Once in a blue an artists find a way to redefine it’s purpose and make it seem really fucking cool. Thanks Mr. Mykhailov
Literally working on a series which focuses on a similar design director. What are the chances I find inspiration on a random day??? Adidas advertising in my opinion has been great the last 10 yrs. They always seem to go on to the edge and push visual interpretations.

Another cool animation with a strong and positive message. Dress Code the studio who produced this info graphic seems to always realize on great design. I’m becoming a fan of their work.
Blurb about the Project Ellis project:
“If you or someone you love is affected by the new executive orders on immigration and needs help — whether it’s legal advice, money for travel/accommodations, whatever — please use Project Ellis (Entrepreneurs’ Liberty Link in Silicon Valley) to ask for assistance. You, your friends and your colleagues are not alone. Please spread the word.”
One I thing respect and love about the motion and design industry is the ability to convey strong messaging.
Weather it’s environmental causes, the human condition or political responsibility. Great design and strong messaging are truly phenomenal when married. This piece convey that sense of a grand marriage. Artist Ignacio Osorio fluid motion keeping you engaged with well placed dialogue. An immersive experience and marriage on a grand scale. Good Job!
The blurb from vimeo “The Summer after 10th grade Mike spent two solid weeks with horrible horrible migraines, dizziness, blind spots and tunnel vision—he didn’t know what it was… This is the story of his Coke Habit.”
One highlight of motion graphics is the ability to work independently of clients and deadline. This project was done in such fashion. Detailing the narrative of a personal addiction to caffeine something one in the design industry may know to well.
As visual component this motion piece seems pretty straight forward. A trend many other designers have adapted over the last 2 years. Profiled on the bible for motion designers “Motionographer” blog. The artist Alex Mapar has worked in the industry for quite a few popular studios. Building a strong brand around his aesthetic visual take. Here a snippet of the interview Motionographer posted.
“I want to preface this incredibly indulgent answer (that’s the equivalent of me describing how I fine tune my lottery winnings) by saying how thankful and grateful I am every day for having this position of privilege. I have a nice job drawing pictures and making cartoons, that somehow pays the bills too. It’s amazing; I really mean that. There’s a million harder jobs out there and a million harder hardships to have to deal with, and I check my head with it every single day.”
