motion designer vincent viriot composes graphic animations of bowie, vader, and daft punk

motion designer vincent viriot worked in collaboration with design studio iconic paris in the development graphic animations for the launching of the brand’s new website. iconic paris typically expresses its image with a monochromatic palette, and makes use of black and white imagery of art, music, and cinema icons. taking this influence, viriot adopted these figural portraits, namely david bowie, darth vader, and daft punk, to generate hypnotic animations using his signature graphic style.

vincent viriot was given a generous amount of creative freedom in the development of the series for iconic paris. after digitally modeling the iconic figures, translating them into three dimensions, the artist introduced copper to the black and white palette. geometric shapes surround the figures to generate an artful composition expressed in rhythmic motion. the three-dimensionality of each portrait is exaggerated as they are rotated and cut open — in one case an architecturally cut section reveals an interior poché embedded with a cluster of smaller geometries. the artist comments: ‘I wanted to focus on an architectural feeling with real materials and geometrical shapes, and bring a minimalism twist to these famous icons.

 

 

we brainstormed and found some 3D models and then i started to design it with lots of texture and with the color code black/white/copper.

i wanted to focus on an architectural feeling with real materials and geometrical shapes, and bring a minimalism twist of this famous icons.
