»What we ﬁnd so intriguing about minimalism is that there’s literally almost nothing that can distract from the most important part of the design process – the idea. Simplicity just doesn’t allow a weak concept. There’s no diversion – it’s all about telling the story.«
We Think Things was founded by motion graphics artists and directors Pascal Monaco and Felix Meyer (both born 1986 in Hannover, Germany).
They studied communication design with an emphasis on 2D animation and graduated in 2011 with the short film Hitch.
As a design duo and directing team, they are mainly driven by the urge to tell a story.
While being influenced by the simplicity of graphic design they soon started to focus on a minimalistic and colorful approach to motion design.
Their work has been screened on festivals in Berlin, Paris, and New York and was awarded at the ADC Germany Junior Awards in 2011.
