First and foremost, this video is wonderfully made by motion design studio, Buck.
Infographic style, bright colored, clean layout, great transition, message enforced, cleverly done video. Great job.
Okie, now for the movie, Waiting for Superman is a documentary that will be released in early Fall. The topic – EDUCATION. Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) alarms us of the falling rate of the American education system.
The Russian Avant-Garde film poster movement is one of my favorite moments in history. I know, I know, most designers are influenced by Bauhaus and that whole shift of things but that never really called to me. It’s clean and pretty but, eh, never did it for me. Something about the lack of substance just doesn’t get my heart pumping. However, I love these film posters because there’s sooooo much you can say. The substance is incredible. The symbolic nature of every face always get me. When I think of who I want to be as a designer, I think of the Stenberg Brothers and many other designers of that time. I love the amount of symbolism, the quality of the work, the colors, the bizarreness of the whole thing, the angles, everything, it’s soooo unlike everything I was taught in school. So, from now on, I’m going to try and post regular Avant Garde film posters.
The avant garde nature of this era probably speaks more about me and of me than any other movement I’ve come across. I’m quirky like the eeriness of the movement.
