SUMMARY
“As opposed to traditional motion graphic pictograms and techniques, I wanted to create an Islamic-styled motion graphics video to visualize the concept of an Islamic Economy. After much visual research and experimentation, I came up with the characters and ‘pictograms’ in this video inspired by arabic calligraphy. The animation itself as well is inspired by Arabic Calligraphy.” (Yacoub Yassin)
