DIMENSION DATA | A NEW BORN

OVVO | RAW TITANIUM

ABOUT IT

Dimension Data is a global leader in technology solutions that enable clients to leverage data in the digital age. For the inauguration of their European Innovation Center, that will showcase their latest breakthrough products, they asked us to create a series of videos that would set the appropriate high-end, cutting-edge tech vibe.g.

THE CONCEPT

I had a blast working on this motion graphics piece for Ovvo Optics. The client who saw my previous work, gave me a full open brief and trusted me enough to design all the aspects of the film. The main goal was to find a narrative way to describe the infusion process of the titanium into the metal sheet which is how their sunglasses are built. I started from the raw materials and found a way to collapse them all together telling an intriguing story. Thx for watching.

TO INTRIGUE WITHOUT DISTRACTING

Because the screens will also be used individually to make presentations to the visitors, we were requested to make the videos very beautiful and intriguing, but not so much as to distract people from an ongoing talk should the animations keep playing on nearby displays. It made it clear for us that the project had to take an abstract turn.

FREE-FLOWING NEON LIGHTS

We had this idea that we wanted to create some sort of smooth, soothing movement. Something like liquids blending into each other. We went through an extensive research phase before coming to and falling in love with the final concept: floating organic shapes generating natural flows of particles, and tracing warm, neon-like trails of light.

GIVE ME THE CHILLS​​​​​​​

In addition to the intriguing-but-not-distracting videos (that ended up being called the “screensaver” animations), we were asked to create a boosting, pumping, something-big-is-happening short intro movie. A-là THX. This intro (called the “boot-up video”) is played whenever the Innovation Center is “switched on”. Enhanced by a strong audio mix, the sequence aims at grabbing the visitor’s attention from the very start of the tour and to put him in the right high-expectations mood.

WHAT DO YOU SEE IN THERE ?

Dimension Data also asked us to create visual content for two giant vertical displays placed really close to each other in the Center. From the start, we thought it would be quite cool if the two screens could somehow form a visual whole, interacting with each other in a single concept. We ended up with a kaleidoscope effect of sorts: with the vertical symmetry between the two displays, we created a sort of hypnotic, sucking-you-in Rorschach experience. What do YOU see in there? :)
