Motion Graphics Business Card

I've been playing with motion graphics on and off for like 11 years now. I wouldn't say I'm great at it by any means, but over time you do tend to pick up little things that can add up.

So maybe I'm not as terrible as I think, but I can at least do basic stuff. Or rather, I can figure out ways to make certain things in a way that I actually know how to do them. It's probably like this for a lot of people across different skill sets though. Nothing is super complicated if you have enough random know how to figure out how to deconstruct it and put it back together with the toolbox you have.

We Laugh At Danger

I'm still trying to learn After Effects so I gave myself an assignment to make a kinetic type video. In retrospect, I should have picked a shorter song.

Dad’s Birthday Present

My dad is across the country and I haven't worked much this year on account of the state of the ad industry and COVID, so I decided to make him something and use it as an opportunity to learn more motion graphics.

This is the first time I've worked with a camera in After Effects. Learned a lot about how to work with it and the importance of creating a null-object to parent it to to use as a dolly.

Mountains

Wanted to play around with some more motion graphics, so I illustrated a quick mountain scene and made this.

Mother’s Day Card

I've been trying to teach myself more motion graphics in After Effects, so I decided to make a card for Mother's Day this year.

Nuehuevo York

Last year I posted about how I had an idea for a restaurant name and made a logo for it. Well, over the past few days I decided to blow it out. That includes an identity suite, headlines/brand voice, in-restaurant design, social posts (with animation), a website and other collateral. See it here.
