June is my favorite month of the year, because that's when the summer starts, but it's till not too hot and also because it's my birthday month! Here are some of my June favorites.
Selfridges & Sustainability by Strange Beast directors Anna Ginsburg and Hannah Jacobs
This advertisement of Selfridges (high end department store chain in the UK) is consisting out of beautiful illustrations full of bright colors. The main topic of the animation is sustainability, which is represented with a natural theme in a whimsical way.
That plastic is the new smoking is no news. Stylist Magazine published an article about this topic with some interesting images. I find the cigarette pack filled with plastic straws is not only a great idea, but it's also aesthetically highly pleasing.
ANIMATION STUDIO inspiration
This month I discovered some amazing work done by the guys at the Furrow studio. Their explainer videos have all that is needed: modern design, sleek movements, perfect color balance and interesting storytelling.
ART SUPPLIES artsy stuff
