I think I can safely assume that smart phone users have at least once checked their device for the weather forecast. Some weather apps have full screen sweeps of rain or sunshine vistas, other apps have simple or stylized icons.
One of my current projects is animating a custom set of weather icons to be used for a lobby LED screen at a financial center in NYC. This is the second set that designed and animated, but it was not as simple as repurposing previous assets. I did use the rain and snow particle animations footage, but this set did not have the display confines of an squarish icon or a hand-held display screen.
Here are some examples of the weather conditions in context. And yes, I’ve had to animated the extreme conditions like tornado, flood, and sandstorm.
And for good measure, I’ve included the option for a chance of zombies. Enjoy.
