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