North by Christoph Niemann

North is a visual travelogue about Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean, by an illustrator Christoph Niemann. The digital version of this gorgeous essay is jazzed up with a series of subtle animations, which not only amuses viewers but helps better understandings of the story. Each animation was experimented, polished, and curated carefully for the best visual effects, honoring the concept of kinetic design.
