onedotzero + karsten schmidt: adventures in motion 2009/10.

I frequently find myself wishing that I lived in London, for various reasons. Now another major one is just around the corner…

Onedotzero_adventures in motion is back and showcasing some of the world’s most innovative motion design from Sept. 9-13. The incredible lineup of screenings, installations, and more makes me drool. It’s visual Utopia.


For this year’s visual identity and festival trailer, one of my favourite digital motion artists, the bad ass Karsten Schmidt, teamed up with Wieden+Kennedy London to create sinewy, flowing, fluid tendrils of text that eventually link together to form the festival logo . All of the copy was gleaned from onedotzero’s social media portals or pulled from blogs and Vimeo comments, symbolizing the collaborative nature of the festival and of the viewers’ comments and feelings forming its foundation. I wonder if one of mine is in there somewhere…?

The result is nicely symbolic, pertinent, and deceptively difficult to create.

If anyone would like to fly me to London to blog from onedotzero, I’m totally down. Just putting it out there. Anyone…?
