I don’t know much about Typical Hope but boy do they know how to make excellent GIFS! Started earlier this year, the blog currently has about 25 small animated loops on it and I’m looking forward to watching it grow over the next few months.
Each GIF is made using traditional animation, Photoshop or After Effects and the work has a wonderful variety to it. What strikes me most about it is just how striking a simple item or scene can become with just the right amount of animation. A doughnut or a cup of coffee for example becomes a beautifully hypnotic image with just the right amount of animated flourish. I love it! And the color choices are just perfect too.
You can see more work from the mysterious Typical Hope by checking out their Tumblr here.
