This tutorial was great example of using the camera and it’s depth of field feature. After completing the tutorial I swapped out the crosses for my logo. I then exported the image as an animated gif in Adobe Media Encoder, here’s the final animation.
As I was examining my Graphic Design Portfolio website, I had determined that I needed something on my home page that showcased my Motion Graphics skills. I had done a bit of searching and found a couple artists on Behanced that had nice Typography Animated Gifs that I was inspired by.
Below are images that I aspire to replicate to add that extra motion I needed on my website:
To begin learning this Typography Animation technique I found a tutorial on YouTube by a Motion Graphics artist that goes by the name of Dope Motions. This was a perfect project to experiment with After Effects and 3D text elements.
Finally here was interpretation of an Animated Gif with Typography. I will continue to experiment with this form of Motion Graphics, what I would like to try is create a highly polished Adobe Illustrator text element and then bring it into Adobe After Effects to add the extra motions desired for an even deeper distortion effect.
As many things have changed in 2020, I felt my Featured Images for my Portfolio Widget in WordPress needed to be adjusted to the correct dimensions. I simply took a screenshot of the web page and created a Photoshop template to the correct dimensions for my WordPress Portfolio Widget. Worked on each image to showcase the best featured of each portfolio project.
The end result of these featured images drastically changed the feel of my home page. They fit the dimensions and give my user a more confident visual experience. Below are the “Before & After” images.
So our Mayor of Sketch N’ Chill decided to get up and leave New York to live in Arizona… FOREVER Maybe. I had known Eric for a very long time as well, we went to the same school – POBJFK High School on Long Island, New York. He was always the life of the event I held every 2 weeks at a bar called The Republic in Farmingdale. Members as well as good friends supplied drawings and videos to produce a memorable piece of content for his Facebook page. I collected all these various forms of media and created this video to give Eric an energy boost to grant him the confidence he needs to start fresh.
A lot has changed since 2014… that was the year I decided to redo my Graphic Design Resume in a style that fit my career of choice. I wrote about creating a project like this and showed my influences – Check out the blog post here “Creative Graphic Design Resumes…”
Here in 2020 I decided that I need to update my resume for various reasons, one being I became older and my photo was a younger version of myself. Along with that photo update, I wanted to re-design the layout to be able to fit more jobs and experiences on that standard 8.5″ x 11″ piece of printer paper found in most offices that are hiring people, not robots… I’ve never worked at one of those and don’t know what paper dimensions they use.
It was time the 2014 layout needed a change for 2020, below is the before and after.
Talenthouse is an excellent site for artists in almost any media! This site brings together talented aspiring artists, established artists, and branding professionals. Here you can collaborate with almost any field that is looking to get ideas for their campaign. Over the passed couple weeks I have been working on a poster collaboration with the band Slightly Stoopid for their Spring tour of 2014. This collaboration was open to anyone in the U.S. and the winner receives a prize of $500 and Tickets to a concert of their choice along with exposure to all of their social media outlets. Perfect timing for me because I just received a Wacom Tablet for sketching on the computer.
