Motion Study Proves Flat Illustrations Were Meant To Move



Justin Mezzell is an illustrator and designer based in Orlando, Florida with some serious talent. Not only has he done work for some big companies like Google and Twitter, but he has a project called Motion Study. Motion Study is where he takes objects, logos, and even video game elements and turns them into flat illustrated animations.

Justin’s Motion Study project is dope because it takes the current design trend of detailed flat illustrations and elevates them to new heights with animation, which isn’t done too often. Here are a few of my favorites;


They look a little fuzzy in the preview above, but when you click on one you’ll see it in all of it’s crisp awesomeness!

My favorite animation from Motion Study has to be the turntable above, for the obvious reason of my love for vinyl. Truly all of Justin’s work in Motion Study is awesome and you can check more animations out at the Motion Study Tumblr.
