Neuland - Zu viel ist nicht genug

Neuland Frames

In den vergangenen Wochen habe ich an der zweiten Ausgabe des NDR-Formats Neuland mitgewirkt und herausgekommen ist eine schöne Doku zum Thema Konsumverzicht.

Der Film von Willem Konrad, Domenica Berger und Benjamin Arcioli beleuchtet mit einer hervorragenden Filmsprache die Widersprüche unseres Wachstumsmodell.

Ich habe bei diesem Projekt die grafische Gestaltung und die Animation der Erklärfilme umgesetzt. Dabei hat mich Óscar Valero an ein paar Stellen illustrativ unterstützt.

Ihr könnt “Neuland – Zu viel ist nicht genug” in der NDR-Mediathek anschauen.

Redaktionell hat Fabian Döring das Projekt betreut.

"This is not a time to lie" by Ray Lei

26-year-old Chinese artist Ray Lei has published a very beautiful piece of hand drawn animation:

This is not a time to lie from RAY

I especially like the use of texture and the minimalistic visual narrative.

Ray Lei has also given a nice TED lecture in Shanghai where he talks about his process and life as an animator in China:

Shit Showreels say by Peter Quinn

Vancouver based Peter Quinn has made a wonderful ‘Anti-Showreel’, how he puts it, showing off some of the “en vogue” Motion Design techniques of present days. It has made me smile a lot!

On his website you can even find the project files, thank you Peter!

Generative Identity Design for MIT Media Lab

TheGreenEyl has teamed up with E Roon Kang to create a visual identity that keeps up with the heterogeneity of the MIT Media Lab. Instead of creating a single static logo they have gone for a far more contemporary option: with processing as the tool of choice they have developed an algorithm to create over 40.000 possible variations of the identity.

Revealed Plagiarism: You thought we wouldn't notice...

You thought we wouldn't notice dot com - but we did

„Everything has been done before“ is an often quoted post-modern cliché, especially among pessimistic minds.
Some designer, art directors and other people in the creative industry take this saying far too serious, and go further than just using other’s work as referential material – for the black sheep of the internet age, plagiarism can be considered as an easy practise to meet deadlines.

But fortunately there is a collaborative blog that documents those cases:
