Recent motion graphics goodness
- Roi Sabarov’s Typeflow animation is poetry in motion. ("That is awesome. That goes on the blog." –Margot, Licensed Nackwife.)
- Fatal Farm makes some super, ah, unique remixes of 80’s TV themes. Knight Rider is brilliant, though be warned that you won’t be getting the song out of your head. The rest are of mixed taste, so don’t say I didn’t warn you.
- Mato Atom’s "Champions" probably won’t change any hearts and minds about Bush, Blair, & Co., but it’s impeccably executed. [Via Sebastian Meyer]
- I like the lo-fi stylings of these animated videos for Welsh band Los Campesinos!, created by Simon Ampel & Chris Seimasko.
- The Whitest Boy Alive is all about optical illusions. [Via]
