We’ve all been there, those days where your rivers run dry, your brains’ a barren land and inspiration just feels… so far away and out of reach. But don’t worry, we promise that with this article a storm will be coming your way.
Here we have a list of 5 motion graphic accounts to follow on Instagram, from the cool and explosive to the wacky and weird, check them all out below.
Talk about wacky and weird. This Brooklyn-based 3D artist/animator sure takes pastel colours, and puffy soft things to a whole new level, huh? He combines his everyday experiences, childhood media memories, favourite cartoons and random candy wrappers with his unique aesthetic to create funky works like the one above. If you think the one above was bizarre enough, check out the rest of his profile for more.
Here’s the cool number. Golden Wolf is an award winning animation production company based in London. They’ve worked with big brands like Nike, Adidas, Playstation, and many more - I’m sure you’ve heard of them somewhere, somehow. From cigarette smoking anythings to exploding ice creams, you can say they channel themselves in the work they do immensely - extremely admirable and inspiring.
This animator who specialises in cel animation, or frame-by-frame animation, does more than just drawing smoke. He’s a part of Adult Swim right now, working as an illustrator and animator. But in his free time, he explores and practices endlessly to perfect and better his craft. On his profile, you’ll see experimentations, expressions and his personal musings.
Animade is another award winning London-based animation studio who has done work for brands like Airbnb, Facebook and Google. Their spirited, lively and cutesy animations breathes great life and intense character into stories. Passion project after passion project, they shed light on their beliefs and personality as a studio - that, on top of their work, should be more than enough to spark an idea or two.
Behold, the all in one. Xuxoe is an account that features works from different individuals and studios in motion graphics and graphic design. They gather submissions through their hashtag #xuxoe on Instagram. Their account feature works based on a wild set of weekly themes like body parts, colours, skateboards, character design and typography too!
