Autofuss 001: Katelyn

You may recall that we interviewed an internal motion design team at agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners that went by the name The Action Cats. The Cats made a splash with their entry in the Adobe See What’s Possible challenge, The Experiment.

They’ve since broken off from GS&P to form a new studio, Autofuss. To announce their birth, Autofuss recently posted an in-house short starring the incredibly cute Katelyn. I can’t quite verbalize why this project pulls me in, but it does. It’s subtle and magical, with a strangely charming denouement that feels perfectly paced and well-earned.

I’ll be keeping my eye on Autofuss. I think they’re going to make some great work.

Thanks to Jarratt for the initial tip!

Their studio is like WOW?! (a quick segue) I really like their short, it’s very cute and it does capture the excitement of the new idea. It’s really nice.

iline

Am I the only one who thinks that this schmaltzy short is not the best way to announce one’s opening for business?

justin

Yes, I think an inflatable gorilla with a massive GRAND OPENING banner would have been much more effective.

leahzero

I think it’s brilliant piece of heartstring-tugging marketing, not made to impress designers.

Nikkons

i really like this piece, though i concur with iline.

morgan

Hah. Think I need to use her for my next pitch.
