In each of these clever animations a stick figures takes center stage, humorously acting out a looping scene in a colorful cartoonish world. Whether the figure is floating away under balloons or falling off a church roof, he never quite learns his lesson. Where does each animation begin or end? It’s hard to say… and that’s what makes each example so addictive and watchable.
Every week Nantes, France based designer/illustrator Guillaume Kurkdjian has been creating a new edition in his series of looping GIFs, Bisous les copains. He translates his signature crisp and playful style into each example, creating environments that are cute without being too innocent. His other projects run the gamut from 2D and 3D poster design, to video, photography and even typography design (we especially like his series of floating islands). That’s pretty impressive for a guy who just hit his twenties. See more of his portfolio on Vimeo, Flickr, or at wertn.com.
