FLOW Graphics in Motion
Now on show in Shenzhen: FLOW, China’s first international motion design exhibition (until January 5, 2023). The exhibition is a collaboration between “the Chinese curator Liu Gang” of The Pin Projects and motion designer Roy Terhorst, partner at the Amsterdam design agency Thonik. FLOW shows the avant-garde in motion design from three continents.
It is the momentum for motion design that has unleashed a new revolution in the graphic arts field and is growing into a mature culture. The constantly innovative and as yet unexplored, surprising possibilities that this relatively young field offers, and the urge of many creative motion designers to experiment freely and stimulate each other, are the motivations for the two curators to initiate FLOW. They selected a group of about 25 established and less well-known names who share a love for graphic and motion design and together show the breadth and richness of the field – from Korea, Japan and China to Switzerland, France, the Netherlands, and the United States.
They are designers who possess a high degree of craftsmanship, who show progressive animated designs or present us a convincing and substantive translation of a message. They are designers who know how to use the new tools in the most beautiful ways and who experiment, such as Zach Liebermann, who, inspired by experimental film and animation from the early days, creates a kind of moving paintings. Roy Terhorst also shows free and experimental work by using new techniques and his love for letters. Some know how to make the most beautiful graphic posters with animation, as the Swiss Erich Brechbühl does. Others take photography as a starting point, such as Dirk Koy and 3D characters, such as Lucas Zanotto. They are all animated works of art that immediately catch the eye.
