Adidas Run For The Oceans Brutalist Motion Design

Eze Matteo shared a really cool illustration and motion design project on Behance. The title is Run For The Oceans, which is a global adidas-led initiative, where for every 1km run between June 8th (World Oceans Day) and June 16th adidas donated $1 towards Parley Ocean School – an extracurricular program that aims to educate the next generation of ocean activists. Besides being an amazing initiative, this post is to talk a bit more about the design and aesthetics of the piece, which has this brutalist look. I have mixed feelings about this style, however, I think Eze did a great job with this project, I especially like the compositions over videos. It creates a nice contrast separating the art from the real. 

Roses are red, oceans are blue, plastic is toxic and so are you :)
