Celeo Ramos is a designer and loves drawing. As a visual communicator, he appreciates images that have different meanings. Besides, he also mentioned that he would prefer to have his name in lower-case.
After an interview with him, I tried to integrate the information he gave me into the motion graphic to present not only his name, but also his characteristics.

Reach out, Share and Demonstrate each other to grow and get better at what we love to do.
I loved working on this project and want to share some of its insights on how I approached to color the elements. Go to vimeo.com/sander/color to download the tutorial. Leave a comment there if you find it helpful and if you see more possibilities for improvement from your unique perspective!
Artists need to visit Pause Fest: Connect to others, to gain knowledge in order to grow. Every artist has a unique story to tell about his or her style and perspective, by allowing individual stories to be shared, Creatives grow individually and together as everybody learns from one another. This animation visualizes exactly that concept in a very abstract way.
99% of this animation is vector and continues rasterized. Every element in the scene is the same size and but put to gather in different ratios. Expression where used to keep the colors dynamic by creating a texture library. ( See tutorial )
Desktop Magazine: "Your thoughts on why motion designers are so willing to work for love and participate in festivals like this?"
Because motion designers believe in their work. They do it for the love of it. Pause Fest is a free platform to experiment with, try new things and for people to become better at what they do. Working for love is the only real satisfying element in this work and it gives you the energy to go on and make the next piece your best piece ever. Artists need a space where they can take the time to communicate to each other and get back to that core issue of why we are doing this. What are we spending your valuable time on? What are we communicating? The festival is a moment to pause! and share what you've learned with other unique designers out there in order to grow, get inspired and learn a whole lot yourself.
