THE ART + SCIENCE OF FEELING
The line is the first species of quantity,
which has only one dimension, namely length, without width nor depth, and is nothing else than the flow.
A Film inspired by Nike's Hyperfeel running innovation.
I've tried to give life to this flat line, informed by data captured while running with the Nike+ Running App and Nike+ FuelBand.
This is an abstract interpretation to different elements of a run and to collective data,
from the initial burst of speed, to a lulling rest and sprint finish.
To compliment the Nike+ running data;
the sound and motion evolve dependent on the peaks and troughs of the abstract forms themselves.
Aspect ratio is employed to enhance the feeling of the single thread,
integral to the innovative nature of the Flyknit upper,
but also of the running journey, from A to B.

Design touches everything. So why has it remained largely absent in the biotech and life science industry.
Fluidigm is the first company to make single-cell testing commercially viable, enabling scientists to run genomics testing on low-concentration DNA samples and provide genetic test results in less than three hours. Their machines make genetic breakthroughs on a daily basis.
From the founder, Gajus Worthington, to the discovery work done every day by scientists, risk-taking and innovation is embedded in the DNA of the organization, driving every element of the company’s culture and products. Fuseproject goal was to reflect the brand’s unique personality and values – bold, risk-taking, innovative, and pioneering, and thrust both the organization and the partners they support into a new frontier.

As an approach; Bio-electronics, data travels around and forms the armor. Dark grey shade inside the armor represents result of extremis virus, which reflects corruption and hack of a body.

The story centres around Leonardo’s personal journals (Codex Atlanticus) which hold over 6,000 pages of handwritten notes and drawings. The film stars award winning actor Peter Capaldi as he narrates the translated text and passages directly from Leonardo's
journals. Our task was to help develop a look and feel and then animate the "mind-scape" that transports the audience into Leonardo's thoughts and ambitions.

APPROACH AND SOLUTION
When i first saw the existing Logo of Colr, it remind me Abstract Painter Kenneth Noland Painting "Beginning". This kind of direct me to Color field Painting era. The colors of the logo were prominent enough to execute it in a minimal way. For me the question was, how I can get out of that circular borders of the logo without losing the colours and the main shape of it.
The main inspiration came from the Painter which I always admired Morris Louis and his Color Field Paintings. I've decided to combine these two ideas in my design (colours & stripes) and execute it with Strands as simple as possible and give the birth of Colr concept, expand the idea with a smooth motion that is integrated to the Logo and Typography to observe the sheer beauty.

I've teamed up with yU+co to design & create a visual language for the brand Starz network, which infuses the entire landscape of Starz platforms with their new tagline, "Taking you Places"
Conceptually I've decided to go with Organic and solid, sculptural forms which were fluid in motion. Overall approach was same for the brand package, but the forms and motion constitute the distinction between the main and sub channel / program ids.
Above credits are specific to Director's cut versions, Over all branding package was done with team at yU+co which had expanded in daily bases through out the project time.
It was great working with lots of talented designers & artists with all their great interpretation.
I'll try to release full list of credits if i can get the names together.

A brand film for New York based fashion designer Michael Angel,.
Which features his upcoming collection & his brand.
Main concept of the film inspired from Michael's rorschach and kaleidoscope base designs in his collection.
I've colloboarated with my friend Mert Kizilay and we've try to push the still images in to motion with sound to create mesmerizing moments.
Piece shape shift and lead to more complex & mesmerizing moments, and It leads to brand.
Art Direction, goes back to 1930's technicolor which was more saturated colors...

Brink aims to eliminate the notion of identity through a perspectival shift. The piece begins with a moment where everything is suspended and the viewer engages with close-up clusters of forms which act as abstract visual clues
Looking at the subject as a landscape and playing within an organic realm in which various spaces emerge from and extracting the identity of Brink from its context.
I was trying to get close as possible to have the subject not identified and act as an abstract landscape....
First tests were unsuccessful...but when i got more closer to subject i was getting the result that i wanted to..... but result was coming with consequences, which is extremely low depth of field.
It was getting more difficult to get the images because effective f-number was depending on the magnification ratio....and I was working between 3x - 4.5x magnificatio
