Creative Director Andreas Berner explains “We wanted to make a low key statement and not make the animation overly complex. So we came up with a simple, flocking animation of butterflies that assemble on the cover. The simplicity and organic quality is something people emotionally connect to."
The 3D team created two different kinds of butterflies and looped them a multiple times until they consume Anna on the cover.
But it didn’t stop with the cover. The GARAGE Magazine App unlocks a wealth of virtual content inside the magazine as well. The Mill 3D team created a CG Tory Burch clutch that pops out of the page and a Karl Lagerfeld design animation that jumps out of the magazine to celebrate his 50 years at Fendi.
The Mill, GARAGE Magazine and Chaos Fashion have a continued partnership. The Mill created five covers for the February 2015 issue bringing supermodels Cara Delevigne, Kendall Jenner, Lara Stone, Binx Walton and Joan Smalls to life on the covers.
