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

Argentinian motionographer Sebastian Curi currently works at Plenty and the proof of his talent is in the pudding at Plenty. Now say that three times really fast.
They say you need to know how to do ‘everything’ these days to fit into the current creative job market, especially on a global scale. Whether or not you actually believe or buy into that bullshit is probably left to your own personal experience. Talent finds a way to shine regardless of the medium. Taking all of that into account, Sebastian Onufszak is a creative of the times. He practically can do everything and is pretty damn good at all of it too. The even crazier thing is that he keeps getting better at just about everything he is doing and you can see that in his updated portfolio.
Iván Flugelman A.K.A. VVSVS has relocated to Berlin where he has started his own business. He already has an adept body of work to show including some work for notable clients like Subaru and Lady Gaga. It’s a nice combination of solid art direction, 3d and graphic design.
Naked instructed me to ‘ignore the music’ and watch the visuals but they are kinda part and parcel with one another when it comes to this sorta thing. I actually think they work rather well together but I will also admit that the visuals are definitely the more amazing of the pair. Bright, bold, neon and beautiful are words that are easily put to use.

So we were super excited to see they have been cranking out some great work lately and their new website looks wonderful. Congratulations guys and we look forward to working with you more in the future.
