CSM studio work

While I’m working in my first year with the Vietnam pop maps on something non-digital  I was kind of missing motion design a bit. The research on information design and map making led me to these two short animations. The above one is a representation of a structure of cohesive mountains in the Swiss Alps using the contour lines of traditional maps to create a reduced 3D landscape. The other animation also represents two dimensional data in a three dimensional space. It animates the population density of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

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.
