A couple months ago my friends at PayPal contacted me to produce a follow-up video to "Water". They are currently expanding their design horizons, and they wanted an inspirational video to go along with their design principles. After receiving the script, i contacted my long time collaborator Carla Dasso to help me in the concept stage. This is the result of almost 7 weeks of non-stop work. From 5am to 1am i worked on these animations, and it was amazing. It's also a tribute to some of my favorite designers: Murat Pak, Alex Roman, Lee Griggs, and so many others that i can't think about right now. I want to thank them all for the inspiration.
Gigs like these don't come that often. It's always exciting to learn something new and move out of the comfort zone. I have always embraced curiosity, and it's fun and rewarding to dive into new stuff and new tools. Investigation and the constant new developments keeps our line or work always interesting and fresh. I think our best work (or at least the most fun) will probably be -or start as- experimental, and that's awesome.
Hope you enjoy this collection of frames, and please write your opinions.
