Jimmy Simpson: Square Street Studies

In “Square Street Studies,” designer/illustrator Jimmy Simpson distills urban life into colorful bite-sized loops.

Says Simpson:

I have been focusing on illustration for the last few months and this project stemmed from an idea I had for a print series. The print idea turned into a series of 15 second loops for instagram and I liked how they were lookin so i decided to collect them into a final video. They are inspired by philly, beatz, and Léger with cameo appearances by Seinfeld, Garfield and Drake.

As joedonaldson on the Motionographer subreddit puts it:

This piece deserves more attention. All the decision making from the color palette to the compositions are extremely provocative. This is a wonderful example of story telling through ambient animation which perfectly captures the tone of city life.
