Animated Campaign for Hotel Search Platform Trivago Spain

Animated Campaign for Hotel Search Platform Trivago Spain

 The Rusted Pixel and Ruye were contacted by  Hotel Search Platform Trivago, Spain to create two 30 second spots as part of a new animated campaign. They worked very closely with Paulina Grondal, who overseeing the art direction of the spot, which was created in-house. The idea was simple, to zoom from space to Spain and along the way show how many hotels were available to  Hotel Search Platform Trivago users. They cherry-picked different styles of architecture to compliment each region of Spain. The spots then changed at "street level" - one set on a colorful street in Tenerife with peach and pink buildings while the second was set in the crisp white walls of Malaga adorned with flowers, shrubs, and hanging baskets. Each advert signs off with the "Mr. Trivago character" in different scenarios, the first he's in a large hotel complex and ends with him surfing while the second shows Hotel Trivago users how they can use filters to choose what size pool they would like on their holiday and ends with our hero at a fried fish hut. A common sight in Malaga. Animated Campaign "So Many Numbers" - Production Stills Creative Process

Animation: Breath of the Night GIFs by Nancy Liang

Animation: Breath of the Night GIFs by Nancy Liang

It's amazing to see GIF images still popular. When I started my design career, or even before that back in the 90s, GIFs were the only way we could see animation on the web. It ended up losing space to Flash with its vector animations but, incredibly, GIFs made a come back and now are super popular. It's almost the core of memes. Of course artists and designers take it to the next level making beautiful animations and loops. Nancy Liang created a super stylish set of illustrations and animations with a nice retro feel. Nancy Liang is an illustrator and animator with a beautiful portfolio. We recommend that you check it out at http://cargocollective.com/nliang I am a Sydney-based artist and illustrator who focuses on tales of urban landscapes, city streets and the often forgotten places of suburbia. I represent these subject matters using drawing and kraft paper cutouts arranged in the visual form of a diorama. My practice also extends off the page from print to animation, where I enjoy creating animated scenes and looping GIFs in my spare time on my blog 'Over the Moon'. GIF Animation

Super Stylish Motion Design of Division & Unity

Super Stylish Motion Design of Division & Unity

Division & Unity is a motion design, creative direction and animation project created and shared by Andrew Popplestone on his Behance profile. It's a beautiful message about modern life, how connected we are and the main issues that can create. The message is interesting but for us here we want to focus 100% on the motion design and visual language, which has that retro look with some modern interpretation. Check out below: Motion design Stills Description The studio's response was a collaborative effort in which the very reflections and values of the team were articulated both as a visual and voice over narrative. The result is a comment on how our digital age has shaped and influenced us, has led to troubling rifts and divisions across the globe and how working together makes us stronger. While the visual narrative played to our strengths as a motion graphic studio, writing the voice copy was a really interesting process that made us ask a lot of questions about our collective values, our message and how to articulate that. The final edit really proved the power of voice and visual together and we felt that the voice brings out the human element within the visual narrative, allowing he piece to connect emotionally.

It's Monday and as it has become more and more common I will post about motion design. I was even thinking about calling it Motion Monday, but then I thought, it is too cheesy.

Motion design by Radio

Motion design by Radio

Motion design is taking over and my prediction is that in a short period of time it will be a required skill for any visual designer or perhaps any product designer. I feel that understanding the principles of animation and the power that it has in driving user's attention can help designers to create simple and more effective interfaces. It also can give that feeling of friendly and playful, or just a beautiful eye candy moment. The folks over Radio are really good at creating this moments. We selected some super clever and awesome examples for you. Radio is a design driven production company housing a diverse team of creative talent specialising in animation and illustration.

ZH OURO Rio 2016 - UI/UX and Animation

The Olympic Games in Rio is over and now we have to wait another 4 years for the Tokyo games. There was a lot to like about this year, at least for me. First, it was in Brazil, my home country and second everything went well. With these massive events there's a big push in terms of promotion from media companies to create apps to garner fan attention. Leo Natsume shared a beautiful UI/UX project on Behance that is, for me, one of the best I've seen this year. The animations, the UI, everything from a visual standpoint is top notch. Check it out. We developed a website with lots of animations and all Olympic sports for project for ZH OURO. The spread of this digital product is to present the medals of the winning countries and a comparison with Brazil, the host country of the Olympic Games Rio 2016 - Behance The project was done by the Grupo RBS.

OLYMPIA Animation

OLYMPIA Animation

Another summer Olympic games will start today, this time taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There's always an excitement behind any Olympic games, from the announcement of the logo and identity, to the mascot a few years prior. The opening ceremony is probably one of the highlights of the show, it's always kept in secret what will be shown. We here at Abduzeedo are getting into the spirit and looking forward to 17 days of sports and of course Olympic related posts. The OLYMPIA one from Behance had to be the first because it's just beautiful. OLYMPIA is an homage to the Games and especially the athletes and their amazing moves. I love how stylish the animation is, there's a lot of dynamic and everything feels super fluid. The project was done by Henrique Barone, Rafael Mayani and Conor Whelan from Vancouver, Canada and CypherAudio from Toronto, Canada.
