Analogue Loaders animated film

This animated film is called Analogue Loaders, created by London-based director Raphael Vangelis. He specializes in design driven animation projects ranging from short films and music videos to TV commercials.

I love what he says about it: “This short film is my animated autobiography. I spend most of my life swearing at the computer because it’s crashed or isn’t working. Here, well known digital symbols are turned into something analogue and playful. The result is an homage to all the lost time we collectively spend in digital limbo in the hopes of sudden development on our screen.” So, true!

You can also watch the -very entertaining- making of the film here.

Kafka’s words come to life with typography

This is the work of the award-winning design group Beetroot from Thessaloniki, for the opera production of “The Penal Colony” by Philip Glass and Franz Kafka. The director of the opera needed a design team to bring Kafka’s words to life and on stage, so, the designers from Beetroot decided to create the machine described in the book, out of Kafka’s text itself.

Beetroot explains: “Over the years we often return and explore the concept of typography as a ‘living entity; through various projects, which has led to some really interesting results both conceptually and visually. Interpreting Kafka’s machine as a literary device, we tried to elevate type from a mere decorating collection of characters to an actual performer, one that has the ability to torture and, ultimately, to kill.”

The animation for Moby’s music video

This is the song “Are you lost in the world like me?” by Moby & the Void Pacific Choir. While I am not too crazy about the song, I find the video amazing! Created by Steve Cutts, a London-based illustrator and animator.

Moby himself says: “The video Steve Cutts made for ‘Are you lost in the world like me?’ is without question one of the best videos that’s ever been made for one of my songs.”

So many issues about our obsession with technology and social media, given with a “retro Mickey Mouse” style.

Just discovered Jeff Rogers, a New York City-based designer and letterer. He has a very distinct style of lettering which I love! He uses a combination of hand-drawn and digital techniques depending on the project, while having a very broad range of styles in his work.

He usually begins with pencil sketches and then, often, moves on to the computer to make vector outlines and add texture and color. In other cases he draws or paints by hand, creating a beautiful retro style reminiscent of vintage painted signage. He also plays around with sculpted letterforms by creating three-dimensional handmade letters.

Also, really amazing work with the GIF animations!
