“For FITC Amsterdam 2013, we created these titles based on the creative designed by mr Bradley G Munkowitz (aka GMUNK)
Since Bradley was already working on the creative for the print campaign of FITC Amsterdam 2013, and we loved his design work, we decided to step in and give FITC a complete and cohesive visual package instead of visually creating something completely new or different.

And so here it is.. our “Pyradical” main titles for FITC Amsterdam 2013. Pure disco!”

Produced for FITC Amsterdam 2013. More info at fitc.ca/amsterdam

Design & Concept: GMUNK (gmunk.com/)
Production & Direction : ONESIZE (onesize.com)
Type Font Design: Brian M Gosset (briangossett.com/)
Music & Sound Design: MassiveMusic (massivemusic.com/)

The soundtrack was composed and designed by our friends @ MassiveMusic Amsterdam

Man I want to go to this so bad this year. Hmm. How to talk my wife into letting me go to Barcelona.

Paper Age from Ken Ottmann on Vimeo.

I’ll be perfectly honest and say that I don’t really agree with the premise here since I am a die-hard print man but it’s a well-done and clever animation none-the-less.

Researching character rigging, polygon reduction, depth of field and motion blur in Cinema 4D.
Music: “Trailer” by Brian (dasandereselbst.orgzonoff.net)

Our studio wants a project like this.

“Beakus director Mr Binns created this beautiful and stylish promo for the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
We were asked to convey a complex idea – how business and consumers should change their habits to an ecology in which we re-generate all the materials we use – in a bright, fun, and engaging way. Mr Binns designed a pared back but cleverly though out world of technology and work in which to tell the story of rotund worker bees living in a new, fresh, Circular Economy.
Go learn more about the idea, and why it’s making headway in business and politics here: ellenmacarthurfoundation.org

Wow this was a lot of work. Simple animation style but a lot of work.

This work is an alphabetical list of the most important architects with their best known building.
A lot of them have been left out with grief because we only need one for each letter and we done an effort to have differents nationalities. If you love architecture, for more stuff you can follow us in ombuarchitecture.tumblr.com
