The Digital Canvas Team

Turkish apparel shop Kaft offers a unique take on the graphic tee in their minimal collection. Reducing the graphics to such minimalism causes the design to become a more conceptually complex statement. Thus, merely showing a simple print doesn’t necessarily articulate the artistic voice of the creative process behind a full collection. Enter Murat Pak and his adroit touch.

Giant Ant puts their cel animation skills to the test in this epic samurai fight. Squash and stretch, exaggerated movements, and extreme field of views are just some of the techniques mastered throughout this short. The simple color palette and rough line work are perfect choices for this style of design and animation since the energy is so explosive. When you are done watching this, be sure to check out the making of video that takes you through the animatic, rough animation, clean up, and color stages!
