Creativity explained (by oddfellows)

On Type :

 

Legendary German designer Erik Spiekermann discusses the importance of typography and offers sage advice for anyone getting started.

Creativity, Explained is an animated series from Adobe that explores the fundamental principles of art and design. Part education, part inspiration, each segment is voiced by a luminary in the field and provides highly relevant advice for hobbyists and working creatives alike.

Our challenge was to create a consistent storytelling approach and wrap it in an aesthetic unique to each topic while feeling like part of a cohesive series. In this first segment "On Type," we took visual and kinetic inspiration from analogue typesetting and letterpress printing and combined it with the infinitely undo-able dynamics of contemporary digital design.

Flatten The Curve

After the outbreak of COVID-19 and the beginnings of global lockdown, we sent out a call to animators from around the world to send us a short animation depicting something positive they have experienced, seen, or thought in the midst of this strange time.

Over 90 animators sent us their contributions, and this is the first film out of a series of three.

We hope it will encourage people to stay home and see that there are still some positives to come of it.
