The first eye-watering inspiration source is Scene 360, a 9 year old online film and arts magazine that is a must bookmark. They conduct interviews and profile some of the best artists and filmmakers in the business, and they feature some crazy-dope videos. I found their video channel on Vimeo via Design You Trust.
Here are a few videos that have been featured recently.
This first video is an ad for ASICS shoes. It tells a story with origami about how the founder of the company used biomimicry to come up with the idea for suction cups on the soles of basketball shoes.
Origami In the Pursuit of Perfection from MABONA ORIGAMI on Vimeo.
and this one is just great all around...
Levi Weaver "You Are Home" from Paper Beats Rock on Vimeo.
The second site I want to highlight is Motionographer a motion design blog that is also a must bookmark. It has been one of my main eye-gasm inspiration sources for the last couple of years. They find the best motion graphics on the internet and give them to us with consice, well written blurbs about each.
here are a couple of their latest features
Capacity in LA just completed a huge rebrand of the Cartoon Network with a genius concept of using the new fad of customizable blank vinyl dolls juxtapozed with Mac like white space and focused color bursts. Just check out the video you will understand.
This next video is a powerful ad for Amnesty International and basic human rights. Another one you should just watch.
