I redesigned where the hinges on the phone would fall in order to create this new style of opening.
This is much more appropriate because it provides me with a number of surfaces and levels to work on. Thinking of the phone as a canvas, I also have more of a square area to work on than the awkward long shape I had before.
This is the phone filled with my animations from before, plus a few new parts in response to the feedback I received last week. I returned to Nick for an update, his feedback is below.
The colours are more coherent as a scheme but they still communicate fun and appear too childish.
The skateboard works much better than a lot of the abstract shapes. It feels like a lot of them are just there for filler.
This gif is a lot more complex than the others you have made. You need to tone it back so that it fits in with the rest of the line up.
