New Justice: D.V.N.O.

Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.” promo burned up the interwebs about a year ago, catching hipster eyeballs with its DIY look and countless variations on the simple theme of t-shirt designs.

A new video for “D.V.N.O.” uses the same permutation concept, but instead of t-shirts, this time it’s retro logo animations set to song lyrics. Despite feeling like well-worn territory, it’s fun and full of TLC.

Machine Molle nailed the motion, and the design was handled by Ed Banger Records art director, So Me.

For a taste of the originals to which “DVNO” pays homage, check this out.

Brings back some memories. That must have been a lot of work but it does look close to the originals. Great job.

This is pure, retro magic. I can’t even imagine how much of work did it take to recreate styles of logotypes and then fluently animate one through another.

Pure magic.

wonderful

I keep imagining how was the treatment process to achieve that animation table glow-y look to the graphics, it’s the closest to the real-thing I’ve seen so far.
