Superflux are a design and foresight consultancy and bespoke R&D lab based in London. Founded by Anab Jain and Jon Arden in 2009, the studio produces prototypes, research, and films that are simultaneously savvy, prescient, and playful—and now they can add ‘magazine publisher’ to that list of outputs. A few weeks ago the studio announced the first edition of Superflux, a Warren Ellis-edited periodical that would mutate in medium from issue-to-issue and archive and disseminate their research and aesthetic. The first issue is a handsome A1 poster expanding on their recent work with drones and—intrigued by both form and content—an email discussion ensued and the duo shared a PDF of the poster for CAN to inspect. To further contextualize the project, Jain and Arden have engaged in an interview about drones, their new publishing imprint, and foresight.
This tutorial shows you how to write code to create a brief looping animation, using computationally-generated graphics, suitable for both online and lenticular publishing. Then, using the unique GifPop services, you can get your GIFPOPs printed.
