CGI Design: Tokyo 2020

Tokyo 2020 is coming in a very short year, I am not sure if things are starting to build or whatnot but we are starting to see more productions gearing up for the next Olympics. We are taking a look at the work from Vladislav Solovjov we have featured before on ABDZ. In collaboration with Golden Wolf UK, he got inspired by a Cyberpunk Style in order to bring together the best visuals possible for the identity. I think this is pretty rad, check it out!

Motion Design & Illustration: A Dream Within a Dream

Motion Design & Illustration: A Dream Within a Dream

I have recently watched Blade Runner 2049 and woah! It was such an incredible film to watch. Every single frame pays an homage to the original somehow and it's quite beautiful. Going into the same lines, we are taking a look at the collaboration work between designers 灰 昼 and 行行珂 Hunk Xing and their motion series: A Dream Within a Dream. I would say this is the perfect tribute to the Blade Runner World added with their own Neo-Noir approach. Give it a look! _This short film Dream in A Dream is in reality, an experimental film about dreams. It is like a symbol floating on the water, being tightly held in an infant’s arms or trapped in the palm of the Buddha; it bursts into a blaze, then projects into the building of a capsule apartment.

Adobe is introducing Motion Graphics for beginners and professionals

Adobe is introducing Motion Graphics for beginners and professionals

Our friends from Adobe has launched earlier this year: Motion Graphics templates for many of us designers who are using motion for post-production workflows or even creating micro-interactions. I love the fact that they provide a variety of files established for beginners all the way to the real professionals. Also one of the best features is the integration between After Effects and Premiere Pro. It prevents editors from having to alternate between the two applications during the post process. Each template can be dragged from the Essential Graphics panel’s “Browse” tab into a sequence in Premiere Pro. Premiere Pro also ships with dozens of Motion Graphics templates that users can select as the foundation for creating their own motion graphics. Image via Adobe In their words If you’re a video editor (and not a motion graphics designer), you can take simple edits to the next level by harnessing the amazing work of After Effects artists through Motion Graphics templates on Adobe Stock. Adobe introduced the Master Artists Collection on Adobe Stock – prebuilt templates sourced from acclaimed motion graphics designers, including Andrew Kramer, Valentina Vee and Nik Hill. You can leverage the power of After Effects without having to know how to write expressions, manage multiple pre-comps, or dig into text animators. Score! If you’re an After Effects master, you can collaborate with control by designating what can or cannot be edited within your Motion Graphics template. In other words, you can be a team player and save time when those inevitable, minor changes need to be made, such as fixing a typo on a lower third. Additionally, you can generate additional revenue by selling these new file types on Adobe Stock. If you’re a jack of all trades, you can edit your After Effects creations within Premiere Pro (no more switching back and forth!). To prove it, new research from Pfeiffer Consulting has found that productivity was on average 350% higher using these Motion Graphics templates! Motion Graphics templates are making it possible for editors to take advantage of the powerful, creative capabilities After Effects offers and presenting the essential elements directly inside Premiere Pro to customize the design directly, allowing editors to harness their own creativity to produce something truly unique and engaging on the screen.

Motion: @javografo on Instagram using Plotagraph Pro

What is Plotagraph? You gotta play with one of their animations to fully understand the concept behind. It looks like a combination of a lopping motion and a cinemagraph?! I am not even sure if it is properly interpreted. But give it a look because, with a beautiful image or concept, the result is simply stunning. We are taking the look at the work of @javografo on Instagram. Being an ambassador of Plotagraph, you will possibly fell in love with his use of this tool. I wished he could have used his own images but it's pretty well credited. Props! Javo is a motion artist and graphic designer based in Chile. You should follow his work via Plotagraph as well.

Motion & Set Design: 2047 Apologue - Weaving Maсhine

Motion & Set Design: 2047 Apologue - Weaving Maсhine

2047 Apologue is a show by the Chinese director and visionary–Zhang Yimou. Presented on last June at the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) in Beijing. We follow the work from Radugadesign about their involvement in motion and set design. I love how the concepts comes to live following the incredible vision and direction from Zhang Yimou. Check out the video as well, it's well worth it. Radugadesign is a studio that creates lots of goodness from videomapping, motion design, interactive installations, VR, digital interiors and more. Based in Moscow, Russian Federation,, you should definitely follow their work on Behance. The director extends the traditional forms of stage performances, combining Chinese folk art with modern technology. The show consisted of eight performances, which were prepared by 20 international and local teams. The Radugadesign studio in cooperation with WHITEvoid (Germany), the director of the London Theater of Contemporary Ballet Rose Alice and CPG-Concept (Lisa Keegan) developed a visual accompaniment for the kinetic dance performance "Weaving Machine". This one concluded the show. In each of the performances, the emphasis was focused on the fact that technology and humans are merged together, but nothing is eternal and technology can leave us.

Art Direction & Motion : Kamaliza – Zanzibar (Love Is Love)

Art Direction & Motion : Kamaliza – Zanzibar (Love Is Love)

Let's start off the Week with this Art Direction & Motion project by UK-based Cape & Monocle. Entitled: Zanzibar (Love Is Love), it's a music video that tells the story of a robot (last of his kind) scattering places in goal to find parts to rebuild his partner. You are taken into this beautiful melody as you are right away charmed by the visuals and intriguing concept makes you watch till the end of the music video. Frame by frame is just a pleasure to discover. Sit back and give it a watch. Cape & Monocle is a team that consists of Ben & Laura located in the UK. They specialized their work into Art Direction and Creative Direction. From big to smaller projects, they will also work their skills into 3d and 2d key art, style frames, animation for TV, animated music videos, social media content and more. Check out their site at cape-monocle.com. When we made Kam’s first music video for ‘Zermatt’ it was made up of 40 or 50 small vignettes – our goal was eventually to expand some of them into full narrative music videos for his future releases. For Zanzibar, the second release from his project, Kam was keen on doing something with the clip that featured a mysterious robot from the first video. We came up with the concept of a robot being the last thing left in a world that had been destroyed by its own creations. Before everything was wiped out, the robots partner had been attacked and destroyed. Zanzibar opens with him waking up after the devastation has stopped. He embarks on a long journey around what is left of the world to scavenge parts to rebuild his partner. Watch the Video Video Stills   More Links Learn more about Cape & Monocle: cape-monocle.com

Interaction Design & Motion: Defind, the Word Finder App

Interaction Design & Motion: Defind, the Word Finder App

We are taking a look at this interaction design & motion project of the iOS app called: Defind. What is it? It's an app that will search of word for you by you defining its definition. The concept might be useless to some but I liked about this project is about its execution, flow, motion and overall UI design. Designed by Alex Pluda, the app is taking through different sections to find that particular word from research, synonyms, translation and more. Alex Pluda is working as general manager at A Maza Inc where he focus his work into interaction design, UI/UX and graphic design. You might have recognized his Barry the Touch Bar project, check it out via his Behance. How many times it happens we can’t remember that word we need. This time has come ti an end (almost). Defind helps you to remember any word just by typing a definition.   Links Make sure to follow the latest from Alex Pluda on Behance

Taking a Voyage into the Deep Void with this Illustration Series

I've always been fascinated with space and its deep void, what about an illustration series that is giving up a glimpse and also a tour of our whole 9 planets from the solar system. Well, this is what motion designer Mitch Myers created and it's just stunning. Everything made in Cinema 4D so it's giving us quality with a mix of realism and look. What's cool about it too is that they are all optimized and animation ready for your next project. For more information, please click here. Behind this series, we are sharing the work of Mitch Myers who is a motion designer based in St-Louis, USA.

Advertising & Motion: Lenovo - Different is Better

Advertising & Motion: Lenovo - Different is Better

In celebration of growth and opportunity ofLenovo, the team over Ars Thanea worked on an advertising video to capture and express its rebirth with a colourful approach that was entirely made without CGI. I would suggest to watch that Making Of to learn more and just watching at the final result is a burst of creativity. This is the work from the mighty folks from Ars Thanea who is an award-winning CGI studio based in Warsaw, Poland and global. They are a diverse team of creatives, thinkers and makers and boy we love this team on Abduzeedo. They are the best at what they do and their craft, always inspiring to see their latest project. The colorful visuals and bursting logo exclaim rejuvenation and rebirth of creativity. A variety of tricky-to-work-with materials, several cameras shooting at different speeds, and lots of patience went into creating this piece for Lenovo. We have chosen a traditional way, no CGI in this piece!

Motion Title Design: NBC Hero Logo

Motion Title Design: NBC Hero Logo

We would like to share this motion title design work by Lost Project for NBC. The famous logo was created in the 40s, we were first introduced to that we see (with little iterations) nowadays by the end of the 80s. The spectrum of colours are quite memorable and Lost Project’s work also makes a beautiful tribute to the original core by keeping a modern twist. Lost Project is a design director named Craig Stouffer based in Los Angeles, California. He focus his work into art direction, branding and of course motion graphics. You may have recognized his work from the titles like Jason Bourne, Netflix Shows like Narcos, Cannabis and more.
