Animated Story of ‘About 2 Squares’

In this project, the idea is making a graphic motion for El Lissitzky’s ‘About 2 Squares’ book. I will animate the story of the book with the visuals that El Lissitzky used. It won’t be just flying objects transform into static visuals, the visuals directly animate the story.

As a tool, I will use graphic motion in order to be able to animate the story dynamically.
