SPD – »Arbeit ist mehr wert«

I’m currently producing a series of several info stop-motion shorts for the German Social Democratic Party (SPD). The first film got released yesterday and is titled »Arbeit ist mehr wert« (»Work is worth more«). The idea those films are based on is to deliver accurate information in a linear time-based narration that connects those unsettling facts directly to political demands.

Artistic/ design influences are of course PES for their detailed and refreshing stop-motion films and the object-based work of Al Briggs, who did amazing things back in the 80s, and these days artists like Gareth Holt, Ben Branagan, Sarah Illenberger and others.

More insights when election day (and summer) is over.

This is the online portfolio for motion and design projects and related research of Nico Roicke. I'm a graduate of MA Communication Design, pathway Digital Media, at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. Also I'm part of the motion design studios Sir ja sir and Buchstabenschubser.

Beside motion graphics (or motion design, if you prefer) I'm the co-founder of the fanzine and weblog Jackpot Baby! - New digital pop culture (all texts unfortunately in German language) and I write for Berlin's finest Webblog Spreeblick - Pop, Politics, Products & Positions (German again). Go and catch up some of my latest tweets on Twitter (English and German, it's really hard to tell) or take a glance at some of my Flickr pics and Vimeo vids.
