Wallpaper Magazine commissioned a couple of animated covers for the digital version of their publication.
The first one features the marvellous illustrated fonts by Korean student Kyuhyung Cho from Konstfack University, Sweden. The animation introduces a few of Kyuhyung Cho’s fonts before dwelling into a typographic forest created with his monumental ‘Garden’ font. The end frame replicates the actual print magazine as close as possible with a CG background.
The other one is their issue The Great Indoors: Wallpaper’s Global Design. Wallpaper Magazine asked me to give life the fantastic illustrations of Israeli graphic designer Noma Bar. As well as the cover, we created a series of openers for different chapters of the iPad edition.
Using a photograph of the stage as a starting point we re-created the room where the photograph was taken in 2.5D to give it depth and slowly reveal the illusions that Noma created in his compositions.
