Wicked Movements

New York - May 2009

As a young designer I was always interested in the concept randomness and how it can produce well formed shapes. Kind of like clouds in the sky, or a pile of leaves on the ground. It seems like us designers have become control freaks in our work flows. Move this button a pixel up, make the kerning on this font a bit tighter. We tweak and tweak until everything is perfect. This is all good, but I had to break free of this strict environment. After all, not everything that we create as designers has to be so controlled. So after months of intense client project deadlines, I was in need of a personal outlet. One that could be as chaotic and uncontrolled as the clouds in the sky. One without any deadlines and stress. I created random shapes and captured the ones I liked the most. This was created in Cinema4d, and then was retouched in Photoshop.


My Role

  • Art Director
  • Lead Designer
  • Personal Project

Since this was a personal project my role was very clear. To have as much fun as possible. As personal projects go, this one was important for me. I was looking to create random shapes that would behave chaotically inside a controlled environment. Being your own Art Director isn’t as easy as it sounds, since you can micro manage yourself to death.
