OLYMPIA Animation

OLYMPIA Animation abduzeedo Aug 05, 2016 Another summer Olympic games will start today, this time taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There’s always an excitement behind any Olympic games, from the announcement of the logo and identity, to the mascot a few years prior. The opening ceremony is probably one of the highlights of the show, it’s always kept in secret what will be shown. We here at Abduzeedo are getting into the spirit and looking forward to 17 days of sports and of course Olympic related posts. The OLYMPIA one from Behance had to be the first because it’s just beautiful. OLYMPIA is an homage to the Games and especially the athletes and their amazing moves. I love how stylish the animation is, there’s a lot of dynamic and everything feels super fluid. The project was done by Henrique Barone, Rafael Mayani and Conor Whelan from Vancouver, Canada and CypherAudio from Toronto, Canada.

Branding Project: L² Studio | Abduzeedo

Branding Project: L² Studio | Abduzeedo abduzeedo Dec 07, 2016 L² is a branding design project created by the two young creative graphic designers, that happened to be twins, for their studio. One of the biggest issues I’ve always had is to design something for myself or in the past for my design studio. Working for clients or products is easier than designing your own portfolio. Krisztián Lakosi and Lakosi Richárd simply did an amazing job with the branding for their studio. It’s super simple but it does look very classic. The L² studio was formed from the collaboration of two young creative graphic designers, also twins. The exponent in its name refers to the effect of cooperation: working together as a team we can achieve a lot more than we could do alone. The graphic designers of L² believe in deliberate, smart design, they built their own identity from the simplest elements possible – from a descriptive symbol and an intense color.
