Once Upon a time, there was a tiny story with a great soul.
When I was working at a London Advertising Agency there were some days I wasn't doing that much stuff so I decided to start a personal project: A series of posters where a simple word was communicated with dots, lines and their composition. I started using a conceptual graphic language based on the principles of the Graphic Design.
At Sebas and Clim we decided to convert those little posters into an animation adding order, time and narrativity to explain a a little tiny story.
Aimar Molero, the guy behind the Sound Design, added life and sense to all of it with an exquisite music composition.
Simple shapes in motion is a video paying tribute to my precursors in motion design such as Oskar Fischinger or Walther Ruttmann. This video is inspired by their work while using contemporary animation techniques while adding my touch of uniqueness.

This is the perfect opportunity for a Carl Sagan quote:
"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
