Flickr Avatar Animation

I recently noticed Flickr had redesigned their website, which I love. Along with this redesign came some nifty new avatar images which were created by designer Charis Tsevis. My eye was immediately drawn to these colorful, neo-futurist designs and I thought, these would be perfect for animation. So I went online and contacted Charis and he gave me the go ahead to play with his designs. He originally created about 12 designs, but for my own sanity I chose my favorite 6. I also chose the 6 designs that seemed to create the widest variety of camera, and show some progression over time. I rounded off the animation with some light and playful music from Podington Bear. Enjoy.
