Monument Valley Title

Animation

The Monument Valley series tells the mysterious and ambiguous story of Ida. From grand structures with impossible architecture, to infinite pathways in underground chasms, her journey is rich in visuals—but vague in origin. Based on the extraordinary mobile game, the Monument Valley opening sequence entices the viewer to question where Ida came from, what she is searching for, and how she came upon this land where nothing is as it seems. Created for my Advanced Projects: Film Title Design class—All scenes were personally built, animated, and rendered in Cinema 4D with additional animations created in 2D in Apple Motion.

while building this animation, I made close references to the original Monument Valley chapter structures. The Monument Valley Games set a new standard that games dont need to be hyperrealistic and extravagant to be powerful experiences. After being inspired by these levels in all aspects—color palette, geometry, shading, architecture—I knew I wanted to recreate this visual language to push myself further while admiring a game that made me interested in 3D rendering in the first place.
Above are just some of the breathtaking structures you'll find while playing ustwo's Monument Valley.
