Photography: GRVTY Series by Daniel Garay Arango
Let’s start off the week with a photography series named: GRVTY by Daniel Garay Arango. What’s particular about this series is the tone and also the extra mile that Daniel took really make it stand out even more from what we’ve seen around. It will definitely be interesting to see his process from start to finish but what I can see here is a mixture of photography and photoshop. It’s really architectural project to a whole new level.
Motion Design Inspiration: Hypnotic Animations
You thought we had forgotten about our Monday motion design inspiration right, but we did not forget it. We might have delayed for a bit but here it is a selection of incredible animations and motion design skills created and shared by James Curran. James is a familiar name here on Aduzeedo, we have featured his work a couple of times but what can we do if he keeps delivering. For this post we will feature more of his amazing perfectly looped animations, from subjects like the video-game Outrun to of course politics. Everything with a lot of sense of humor.
Interaction Design & UI/UX: Transit Tracker Concept
Let’s take a look at this interesting interaction design concept of a transit tracker by Matteo Mapelli. As I am starting to see a trend with designers using the font: Montserrat; it’s a great readable font especially on apps. What I really enjoy about this concept is the main (bottom) navigation, that subtle-overlayed gradient and wrapped with the menu button is quite neat. What raises a question is the use of the map when you’ve actually found your destination and also the use of the other features from the navigation. Overall, it’s pretty great!
Digital Art & Game Design: TRON Concepts
We would like to share this stunning conceptual digital art by GMUNK for TRON. It was for and I quote: “create a series of concept frames for an Unspecified, Inconspicuous Mystery Trawn Project that nobody can ever speak of. The team’s approach was varied, as the brief was essentially wide open granting the boys the opportunity to frolic in the Trawnic Atmosphere; iterating and discovering some bold, unique, and fresh concepts that informed their massive output.” On Abduzeedo, we deeply loved the movie TRON back from 2010, we are feeling quite nostalgic looking these concepts. Hope you will like it as well.
Photojournalism: Cinematic Tokyo by Stijn Hoekstra
Tokyo Tokyo Tokyo. A city I miss dearly! To remedy to my sadness (hah), let’s take a look at the photojournalism project by Stijn Hoekstra. Named Cinematic Tokyo (the project title says it all), I love his approach from a cinematic perspective considering that is also part of his daytime job which makes it even more perfect with Tokyo as a working environment. It’s such a busy city that Stijn captured moments that makes us feel we are in an actual movie which makes it quite interesting.
