Motion Plus Design

The mission of Paris-based Motion Plus Design is to promote the art of Motion Design around the world.

 

 

The organization is run by designers Kook Ewo (who founded MPD in 2011) and Ronan Guitton.

 

 

For the past four years, Motion Plus Design has produced sold-out events in Paris and Tokyo where they invited the cream of the crop of international Motion Design Artists.

 

In 2019 Motion Plus Design makes its North American debut in Los Angeles.

The Event

After sold-out events in Paris and Tokyo, Motion Plus Design will bring its acclaimed motion design festival to Los Angeles for the very first time.

 

Hollywood’s Montalbán Theater will host a full day of talks from renowned designers Beeple, Kyle Cooper, Karin Fong, Jr. Canest, Joyce N. Ho, Marti Romances, Min Shi and Andrew Kramer.

 

The speakers will share the secrets behind their latest creations, such as the Emmy Award-winning title sequence Counterpart from Karin Fong or the UI Graphics of Avengers: Infinity War from Marti Romances.
