As digital technologies continue to create innovations in the world of experiential graphic design, motion design is becoming an increasingly important competency. Essentially, motion design is a discipline that applies graphic design principles to film making and video production through use of animation and visual effects. Examples include films, videos and animated text.
Motion design has evolved as a direct result of technology improvements. With many traditional environmental graphic design installations now incorporating digital components, motion design becomes an important tool in the designer’s toolkit. Designing type in motion is a key skill. With motion design comes the tool of time which adds a whole new dimension to graphics.
As a motion designer I’m trained in traditional graphic design and specialized to integrate the elements of time, sound, and space into an existing skill-set.
