Onwards by James Jarvis

Lovin’ this animation by James Jarvis. Directed by Richard Kenworthy, and music courtesy of Caribou (“Crayon” was a great choice). Nike did sponsor this piece but I am enjoying this trend of really unobtrusive marketing.

Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    This completely blew me away.. I don’t think I can remember when an animation online has seriously captured so much of my attention.

    I really enjoyed the way he did the shading of the runner.. especially coming down that hill, it really surprised me.

    So simple and basic with it’s colour, but so much depth to it – the music added another dimensions.

    I agree if sponsors are going to support this kind of advertising, i’m all for it. I would love to find some type of online directory showcasing all sorts of advertising campagins, but in every language all countries, for the same products, organized by date.. I’m sure there are a lot more of these hidden gems out there.

    Anyways thanks for finding this!

Free Learning of the Day: Skillshare Classes

skillshare-01 skillshare-02 skillshare-03

This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.

I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.

From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!

You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
