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.
I’m sure if you’ve been on the internet recently you have heard about this iOS game called Monument Valley by ustwo. This game features beautifully designed illustrations of impossible structures, that are reminiscent of the artist M.C. Escher’s work. You play as a lost princes wandering through these structures to find a way out. This game is beautifully designed anyone with an interest in art or design should play this game!
Check out some screen shots of the game along with some prototype sketches below:

I think i speak for everyone when I say, we all love concept art! But when you think of concept art, you think of video game characters or fictional movie characters like aliens or monsters. For Jason Heuser he imagines the Presidents of the United States! That’s right the Presidents in crazy, insane, ridiculous scenarios!!! Some of these literally had me cracking up and laughing out loud at my desk this morning, especially the Ben Franklin VS. Zeus!!!

As creative professionals, everything we do has to be creative in someway! At least that is how I feel, so why not dress up your resume? After all as designers, isn’t our job to organize data in a more visually pleasing manor? With that being said I found an article on inspirationfeed.com that inspired me to Re-design my resume to make it look like a designer created it. What do you guys think about this topic? Should designers keep a standard resume or a more graphic oriented resume?
Andddddd as promised here is my take on this topic. Please let me know what you think! Would you hire me if you saw this?

I love to draw and sometimes I find my work a bit dark even if i don’t mean to. Well Scott Martin from Burnt Toast a Motion & Design Company has created work that is both Playful… Yet Dark at the same time! I feel like I am drawn to this style a lot. His work you almost have to do a double take to catch something you didn’t see at a quick glance. Great work! Check it out below.
I have recently shown a great interest in Typography and have seen many different things done, but nothing like this! Lex Wilson an illustrator and graphic designer from Cambridge, UK shows off his illustration skills and his knowledge of type in these highly creative uses of typography. I am definitely going to try some of these myself!

I don’t watch much T.V., but I saw this for MTV and I thought it was the cutest most well designed happy thing I have ever seen in my entire life!
