Alignment to Air - Motion Design & Typography

As personal experimental projects, when starting with the alphabet "A" for the typography animation, J2Motion(Jin Jeon) just came up with the conflicting words in some way such as "Alignment" to "Air" which is the title of this project. With that in mind, the animation presents more precise and elaborate moments for the first word. On the other hand, this ends up with a rather flexible and loose vibe to manifest the last letter.

OP Launch Film - 3D & Motion Design

T O L M shared a beautiful 3D and motion design project for OP Launch Film. They invited us to come along to a visual exploration of light and dark, of what is present and what is not. A studio film and an opening sequence to a weekly cultural magazine wrapped in one. If something is in the dark, does it really exist? Maybe life only appears once we cast light and our eyes on it at the same time? Or will life only appear once we catch shadows and become an everlasting battleground between light and darkness?
