The making of wine – in motion graphics

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

Designer Tiago Cabaco explains the conception of wine in this short animated infographic. Some of the effects, like the frame rotation, are a little overused. It actually made me a little dizzy, but it’s short. Still fun to watch.

In case you’re wondering, the graphics were done in Illustrator and effects were applied in After Effects.
