Welcome to our playground
We like to work hard and play hard. Here you can take a look behind the scenes, as we share specialist insights, passion projects and tests that keep our team on the cutting edge of storytelling and motion design.
It’s a life
Creator Jesse | This pattern has always fascinated me. I have come across it often on my travels as floor tiles. In the foothills of the Himalayas in China, in coffee houses in Malaysia and even in beachside hostels in Morocco. The design is simple if you look straight at it. But when you move around the room the pattern works its magic. I tried to recreate that magic with my animation.
The Rhythm is moving
Intern Creator Constance | For this project, I wanted to give a rhythm to the forms used by using music to set their movements on it. I used 4 tracks of music and animated the forms on it, using as many fundamentals of animation as possible. Each track is assigned to a particular movement and shape, giving each animated part a personality. After the animation, I was able to experiment with different textures and chose this paper-cut effect that matched the music.
Intern Creator Constance | Created a pop-up animation for one of our clients to ad on there website and social channels to promote there brand. The artwork was done by one of our colleges Sophie.
5 Ways to Save the Planet
Creator Sophie | On a sunny morning we read about the IPCC climate report, and it definitely clouded our day! It shocked us how fast things are changing when it comes to the climate. How can we pitch in as individuals to help the environment? To raise awareness, we thought we would do what we do best: share the story in the form of animation. The story got picked up, and everyone at Fresqo shared it on their social channels to increase awareness.
Textures and testing
Creator Daan | We create many explainers and 2D animations. This test allowed me to experiment with esthetics and abstract design instead of focusing on functional design, Moreover, I was able to run some tests on texturing and physics.
Creator Daan | Patterns are used throughout branding, fashion and all aspects of design, but what happens when we start animating patterns? Here are some tests that we ran during a branding project for a digital agency.
Just like rigging a bike
Creator Daan | Some things in life are just as easy as riding a bike, unfortunately animation is not one of those things. Check out all those key frames!
Plain and simple
Creator Dolf | Before Fresqo was born, we experimented with several branding ideas. These are some stills of an illustration style created for a brand new creative agency.
Creator Jiske | If I have the time to just doodle, funny creatures appear and they seem to come to life.
Bright & Day
Creator Iwan | One of our passion projects we developed for an event agency that never saw the light of day. Fortunately, we have our own playground to showcase these illustrations.
