We all have been anxiously awaiting the release of Man Of Steel since it was announced a few years ago. The words are not mine but I cannot agree more with the guys from Will & Tale that put together a simply fantastic title sequence for the movie. They created everything in 2D and 3D animations, voiceovers and other mind-blowing processes. I have watched it more times than I'd like to admit and of course we want you to watch it too.
So, in this post we celebrate the Man of Steel title sequence created by Will & Tale.
RE-VISION — POP CULTURE ICONS
Now that flat design seems to be the biggest trend nothing better than some really cool cultural icons illustrated in a very minimal style. We are talking about the Re-Vision Postcards by Forma & Co.
I don't remember posting about this, but they are simply awesome and definitely deserve a post.
Pixel art is still one of my all time favorite styles, probably because I grew up in the 80s playing Atari. Early generation consoles had an additional influence on me as this type of illustration was pretty common. The amazing thing about pixel art is that it reduces the form to the minimum amount of detail that makes it recognizable. The illustrations of Ercan Akkaya are good examples.
