Texas-based motion designer Marcus Martinez creates rainbow-hued GIFs against solid back backgrounds, producing animated elements that explode, twist, and sizzle with extraordinary color. He started his own tumblr around four years ago after admiring the works of Admiral Potato, Angular Geometry, PI-Slices, and in that time period has amassed over 45,000 followers. Although each aspect of building a GIF intrigues Martinez, his favorite aspect is creating each name. “I get to give an emotion to the abstraction,” he tells Colossal. “I love that part.” You can see more of his colorful creations on his tumblr, Isopoly.
