Isn’t it great when inspiration strikes out of nowhere? Having no other plan than to do some “fun things” in Cinema 4D, graphic designer and producer Joachim Ljunggren found his simple experiments expanding into something much bigger. His artful piece Atom Boy takes us into a shiny world of molecular structures, bouncing around and bonding with each other in a stark white world. The resulting motion graphic short is intriguing in its clever transitions and physics along with its gorgeous lighting and squeaky clean reflections.

Hailing from Sweden, Ljunggren has worked in graphic design and production for the past 15 years, creating motion graphics for TV, corporate films, commercials, music videos, the internet and more. This project in particular was created while waiting to get the green light on a new commercial project. His work in Cinema 4D and After Effects has an engaging and enthusiastic punchiness to it which exudes optimism from every moving angle. Even in his shorter clips his messages are conveyed with the polish only years of experience can produce.
