8 Inspiring Works of Animation

If you are the kind of person who enjoys a well done TV commercial, you enjoy motion graphics, you enjoy a poster, a magazine, a book, whatever related to the visual display of information, this is the post for you.

Wikipedia defines visual communication as “the conveyance of ideas and information in forms that can be read or looked upon”. I would define it as: THE MOST GLORIOUS WAY to communicate, not only for the ones who create the message, but also for the ones who receive it, as throughout visual communication we can express something in so many ways that can be so appealing to our eyes that we can almost be confused between design and art and not for what they mean but for the different sensations that can be produced by visual communication.

I will divide this post in two; “abstract communication” and “figurative communication” just to name these sections somehow. Abstract communication will refer to the images produced through abstractness and that accompanied of sounds can produce different feelings and even give us a message, figurative communication will refer to the message that can be lets say … clearer (it may be not, I mean like its figures are much more recognizable) and that gives us a message too.

Ok too much writing, so lets go to the action:
