Watch the original video, courtesy of Fueled.com right here: http://vimeo.com/79946642 -- Starting with the DynaTAC in 1974 and ending with a side-by-side comparison between the iPhone 5s and the Galaxy Note, Fueled's designers and animators crafted the 40-year history of the mobile cell phone. For some it will be a walk down memory lane, for others a history lesson. Fueled's Design Team describes the short video as Art Deco, a style characterized by its bold geometric shapes and rich colours. It's a very eclectic style, deriving taste from a broad range of sources -- some representing the machine age. You'll notice the snappy animation style reflects the lightning fast transformation and evolution of cellphones.
