Motion Design Stickers

Weekly Report CW 15

Working as a motion designer in Zurich

A month ago, I started connecting to agencies in Zurich, asking to become part of their freelance pool. 16 agencies added me to their freelancers, but I’m aware that this doesn’t necessarily lead to projects.

This week, I focused mostly on the Key Result “be part of a design team in Zurich” as a motion designer. Today, I received these images that promote my collaboration website: https://collab.ottinzky.com

Motion Design Stickers in Zurich, ROUND 1 — by Ottinzky

It’s a tiny guerilla action because Zurich is pretty small, and people may notice it. I’m going to create a super tiny landing-page, that leads from the link on the stickers to the collab website mentioned above. This transitional site is that people not from the creative field understand whom of their friends to tell.

The gif above is a rough version of 24 stickers that give this little piece in motion when staggered. This is round one, and probably do more of these because it’s a hell of fun to see it moving.

FUCK — life sucks sometimes…

FUCK —

Next to finding freelance projects as a motion designer, I focused on crypto-art and uploaded two new pieces to Makersplace. When I created FUCK — I felt so frustrated that I wished to get caught like this little sphere in the animation.

“It’s all about the moment when you realize FUCK … and you let go of this beautiful world. But isn’t that too easy?”

It’s about these thoughts that it would be easier to be gone sometimes. Many friends around me struggle through these times—and other friends make hundreds of thousands of dollars. The gap is huge. I’m on the side where I’m faced with bills I can’t be paid. The feeling of losing ground is real. I’m grateful that I can share my self-destructive thoughts with friends, and they share theirs. And help only works if we ask for it.

More crypto-art

The second artwork that I’ve uploaded to the blockchain is my 500 Days in motion as Everydays-Collage. Currently, it’s stuck on being processed on the blockchain.

Ottinzky | 500 Everydays (2k)

Artwork-Description:

Unbroken daily exercises made me highly committed to life and the people around me. These are my first 500 Everydays. They helped me to master imperfection and to achieve more. It’s the first Everydays-Collage that collects 500 Everydays in motion.

What you get here is the Everydays-Collage in 2k resolution, limited to 20 editions. The original collage comes in a future resolution of 14k and is limited to 1 edition.

The idea is that Everydays-Collages become a rare form of art itself — so that disciplined artists share their daily progress of hundreds or even thousands of days in one piece. Beeple started this journey with his First 5000 Days, sold as a non-fungible token (jpg) on February 16, 2021.

What makes this piece unique?

It’s a call to unleash more Everydays-Collages to show that creative discipline beats perfectionism. If you create Everydays yourself — let’s follow up with your collage to show your progress. It doesn’t matter if you’re known or unknown because every artist’s progress is unique. As a collector, it’s in your power to support this message.

The Five Friday Questions (CW15)

I end every week with a Friday Report and five questions, as we implemented it at OnSaPa GmbH to keep a consistent feedback relation.

What to look at in the future?

  • Try to finish Friday’s earlier. Video-Games-Evening is waiting ;>

That’s it for the third post — I will be back next week.
