I once again had the pleasure of working with Confetti to create Stills / Motion for this year's big Swedish Steel Prize event. The theme for the year was 'Unexpected Journey' – how the advancements of science are speeding up technological progress, creating some quirky innovations along the way and making our journey towards the future less of an arrow and more of a rollercoaster. However, some aspects of innovation will never change: hard work, dedication and a curious mindset.

MOTION

The main titles show the unexpected journey of an idea, starting out as a metaphorical bead of sweat then going through various iterations and gradual refinement, until finally solidifying into the Swedish Steel Prize trophy.
