Interview with Adobe Create Magazine


With razor-thin lines, luminous geometry, and a touch of distortion, Nicolas Lopardo’s graphics are precise and confident. Seeing them is like peering into the future. 

However, for the artist behind the designs, the road to this sci-fi polish was long and twisted. He explains, “At certain points I found myself living in run-down hotels trying to be a screenwriter, on stage as a stand-up comedian, and at strip clubs playing guitar. I gave myself a unique education in what I call the ‘Attempted Arts.’”

FS-II is a motion design project shared by Nicolas Lopardo on his Behance profile. As a fan of abstract designs, especially futuristic patterns that remind of Tron, I could not let this pass. The work that Nicolas put together for this motion project is exquisite. The dark theme and the glowing blue colors definitely caught my attention. It would be something I would love to do in Photoshop, of course Nicolas went above and beyond by creating a beautiful animation, transitioning through different patterns.
