Design-in(g) Space
is Kultnation —Marco Vinicio— intimate obsession to work
with form, scale, light, animated stories and their interrelationships in architectural spaces.
Over the past five years of artistic journey, he has reinterpreted the narrative found in Graphic Design,
typography, bi-dimensional compositions and created fictional scenarios that come to life
through the stories embodied within the animation form.

Born in 1978 in Mexico City and working as designer and director he has created
art films for the moving image industry evoking not only amorphous
and atmospheric dreams from his childhood but as well polymorphic sequential structures
that come to life in a world of unusual stories and non-linear narratives.

He regularly works in collaboration with both studios and clients around the globe,
and his art films have been exhibited and featured
at Musée d´Art Contemporain du Val de Marne, Carrillo Gil Museum of Art,
Pictoplasma, ondedotzero, Sónar Festival,  IdN Magazine,
Gestalten’s Latino Grafico, Stash and the Type Director’s Club 32.

The Umwelt

Is it possible to define the merging point between design and technology?
In semiotics, the German word Umwelt defines the perceptual world in which an organism exists and acts as a subject.
It defines how we experience our world by perceiving data as signs.
Offf Mexico 2014 Main Titles presents the future of design industry where for the first time we designers use the information and data retrieved from our technological Umwelt to alter and control an object’s physicality and materiality.

The following presentation contains a glimpse of the projects I worked as designer and moving image director
during 2010 and 2013. These projects were created for various high competitive client/studio pitches
for both the advertising and motion design industry. While some of them were awarded some of them where not;
nevertheless, you will be able to grasp a quick run-through of the aesthetics and quality of the work I can produce.

—The Madness of Two—
“Is a shared psychosis and a psychiatric syndrome where symptoms of a delusional belief are transmitted from one individual to another.
These symptoms are temporal and happen out of sharing proximity and by being in contact with an ill patient;
once the healthy patient is separated from the delusional patient his symptoms disappear.”
Folie à deux is a film about music and sound madness; where echoed vibrations from the distribution power lines
induce delusional oscillations into the safety cones of a parking lot.

Constructing Dreams for the Future:

In a world where future is uncertain, great utopias forsaken and reality is a constructed space; a dream is born.
A dream – awakened by passion and love – inspired and reinterpreted by space, form and light
as a creative and transforming force for constructing a new future.
Offf Partner Titles is the place where design, architecture, typography and animation merges to create this perfect, transforming and utopian dream.
