I’m really digging this short animation from Ion Lucin, a Bilbao, SPain based designer and motion graphics guy. He’s taken a simple sphere and pushed it to the graphical limits, shifting and morphing it in all kinds of interesting ways. In his own words:
This is a small animation a did as an exercise to experiment and explore all the graphical possibilities of representing the idea of the SPHERE, always thinking in searching Gestalt and form. Its all done in 3d, but i was more interested in the graphical interest, flatten the surfaces, and only two colors, why more.The most difficult was to achieve the transitions between the different type of representation of the sphere, the morphing and metamorphosing.
