Motion designer Max Hattler is a ‘moving image artist’ as he prefers call himself. The treatment of shapes, patterns and an abstract visual language is used to create stories and emotions.
Would love to see a full length movie with a strong narrative script based on his illustrations and motion loops.
Have to mention the pioneers in this field like Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray: Anémic Cinéma.2 hearts
You can see some screenshots I took from the iPad app WWF Together. Love the design and photos, of course, but especially the high level of interactivity that becomes a powerful narrative tool and makes the content deeper and more effective.
Here is the official description:
Experience the world’s most amazing animals in one app — together. This award-winning interactive experience brings you closer to the stories of elephants, whales, rhinos and other fascinating species. Discover their lives and the work of WWF in a way you’ve never seen before.

A selection of photos from 2013 European Space Agency’s mission Volare.
These space paintings, as Ballard would say, seems to be the primitive syntax of a philosophical system, as meaningless but as reassuring as the pattern of waves on a beach.
Rivers as trees of life, cloudy hands raised in the sky, complex wind designs, oceans of sand are sorts of macroscopic pantomimes of an ethereal code, imprinted both inside and outside us.
Space stations act like microscopes of the infinite. As above, so below. More pictures here.2 hearts
A2-Type released in 2012 the Regular font. Designed by Henrik Kubel the font is a geometric sans serif, unmistakably inspired by Stymie and Futura typefaces and that’s exactly where this mix shows all the potential. The lowercase letters are more usable, especially in ‘regular’ sizes, 10-13 points. Quicker than the Stymie to read and still more recognizable than both Stymie and Futura.
Check out other fonts too, A2-Type is one of my favourite newest type foundries.5 hearts
Visiodrome rubric hosting STAGGA, SKULLTRANE and FLOOD.
Heavy vfx in this live mixed vj. It feels like everything is melting and the non-linear, sound inspired repeated editing generates new significances. More mainstream stuff should be treated like this and I’m sure it will.
