The Sugary Death Machine - Motion Graphics

The Sugary Death Machine - Motion Graphics

Motion design is something I really want to learn. There is nothing I love more than seeing crazy cool animations, specifically because static image animations have sound and timing, which makes an incredible difference. One of my favorite types of animation are those that play with typography Enter Finger Industries "The Sugary Death Machine" motion graphics. We hope you get a kick out of this visually entertaining post. The SDM aka The Sugary Death Machine. Comped into a photographic background down our local woods, this little house is distantly related to the witch’s cottage from Hansel and Gretel (as decorated by Disney’s Childcatcher...). Then in a flurry of movement it transforms to reveal its true nature. Video The Sugary Death Machine - Finger Industries from Finger Industries on Vimeo.

A Tribute to the 80s by Arkuma

A Tribute to the 80s by Arkuma

Most of the writers of Abduzeedo are from the 80s and we always expressed our love for that decade's style especially the neon lights, terrible VHS quality and the music. In terms of visual design, we can see the beginning of CGI and 3D animations, with simple forms but a lot of chrome and reflections. To illustrate that nothing better than showing some examples, in this case, the fantastic work of Arkuma. Arkuma is a motion graphic designer and illustrator from London, UK. He has been working with labels, DJs and artists on promotional material. As we can see, heavily inspired in the 80s. A Tribute to the 80s I've always enjoyed emulating the graphic style and feel of advertisments and animations from the 1980s. This is a compilation of all my past 80s inspired animations. All of the animations have been played and then rerecorded on actual vhs tape by Anton Bohlin to help get the authentic results. Chrome, VHS recordings and the Illuminati from Arkuma on Vimeo.
