Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Goodbye, part of Motion Graphic Design: Composition.
- [Angie] By now, you should be brimming with ideas…on how to plan and develop your creative project.…For now, what I'd like you to do is decide on which…creative project you want to produce as a practice project.…Have a little look at the choice of projects…that I've given you.…I want you to choose one of those projects,…and use that as a practice project.…Here's the example that I made again,…the advert for Creative Cap Unlimited.…Start by developing some ideas using the techniques…that I've shown you in this workshop,…and then we can add to the project as you learn…and develop your skills.…
You can add to these skills by watching the other workshops…in this creative motion graphic design series.…
In this course, learn about the most important principles of composition and how to use them in your designs. Instructor Angie Taylor puts these principles in context by taking you though the development of an online advertisement, and showcasing the different techniques used throughout her workflow. She demonstrates how to capture colors, patterns, and shapes using the Adobe Capture app; develop your rough ideas into layers that are ready for animating; compose design elements in After Effects; and create 3D artwork with Cinema 4D and After Effects.
