As any good studio knows it’s really essential to put out some of your own self initiated projects so you can have a play with new technologies before doing something for your clients. Found Studio have just released ‘Mondegreen’ – featuring a series of sculptures each representing a different word that sounds like ‘Found’.

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m the last person to go and buy a pair of football boots – but hell these new Adidas shoes look sexy enough to stick on the wall.

Another day, another new studio to dotmogo – how many of you that we don’t know about out there…? This time round we were very happy that DesignStudio got in touch – set up about five years ago by Ben Wright and Paul Stafford and in the business of motion graphics, animation and print.
For their first send-in they gave us “Hachinoko”, in collaboration with Jack Featherstone – a darkly humourous music video for electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco & German house legend, Roman Flügel. Continue reading “DesignStudio – Hachinoko-Video for Simian Mobile Disco & Romain Flügel” »

Happy New Year. After a stomach bashing few weeks of excessive food & drink let’s kick off this year with a highly creative start. The 99 Frames project was initiated by David Drayton at Maxon to showcase the abilities of CINEMA 4D R13. The project was grasped by the motion designers around the world and the simplicity of the brief, to create just 99 frames of animation using one of CINEMA’s new features encouraged everyone and anyone to enter.
The range of styles and ideas is brilliant and it truly showcases the range of output you can get from the software as well as how vibrant and inventive the online community can be. Ten lucky winners were also selected by an industry judging panel to win a wide-range of C4D plugins and memberships for Cineversity, an online tutorial hub.
When you watch the video it seems like a very comprehensive branding showreel – showing as many ways as possible to visually represent the “99 frames” logo – creatively very interesting.
