One of our plans for this blog going forward is to not only cover gear, techniques, and business issues, but also motion graphics artists and their art. If you’ve done a cool project recently, and are willing to share inside information on the design as well as how you executed those design challenges, please get in touch with us so that we can potentially cover you here – send email to either one of our first names at cybmotion.com.
In that vein, we thought it would be fun to dust off an extensive article we wrote back in 1999 (the previous century!) that covered designers and design trends at the 1999 BDA Conference. In 1999, grunge type treatments were still all the rage (think “Seven”); it’s fun to look back now and see what from those designs still looks fresh and relevant, and which ones might not have survived the test of time.
Click here to read the main article, which discussed several important design trends including typography, 2D vs. 3D, and the emergence of the desktop-based studio which we now take for granted.
Click here to read a companion article which focused on nine studios, and recent projects they had executed back then (lots of eye candy!).
