‘Paris – NewYork’, An Amusing Animated Side-by-Side Flashcard-Style Comparison of the Two Cities

The Nord Collective has taken a cue from the Vahram Muratyan book Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities (previously), expanded upon the author’s original ideas, and created an amusing animation of the side-by-side flashcard-style comparison between the two wonderful cities that neither Parisian nor New Yorker can ignore.

To make this tribute real we couldn’t just use original illustrations directly, so we used Vahram’s ideas as base, completely reworked design and illustrations trying to keep visual similarity to original, animated all scenes and asked our dear friend The Cosmic Setter to write and perform original music and sound design for this project.

In 2012, illustrator Tony Miotto created his own tribute to the same theme.
