Over the past few days I have been working on a brand new Mean Mug and Slim with a new look and feel. I guess the constant animating has led me to seek out other animations for inspiration. Here are three very different animations that are good for very different reasons.
This first piece, Composition in Red, is a short but sweet logo design for a production company called Tendril. Not only is the animation overall fluid and well executed but the sound design brings it to a whole new level. Good sound design can really elevate a motion graphics piece to a new level.
Next is a piece by David de Rooij. Slim Pickings Fat Chances is more of a classic animation. This really brings me back to my childhood. Notice the classic animation style of using smears and multiples to create motion blur.
Lastly is a very stylized piece by Tom Haugomat & Bruno Mangyoku. Tribute to Drive utilizes its own style of flat color and hard edges to push the gritty nightlife theme.
