About This Class

In this class you will create a complete graphics package for a TV show or YouTube channel. I'll walk you through the process of designing a show opener, lower thirds, and transition graphics. We will search for stock images and illustrations and prepare them for animation using Adobe Illustrator. Once our source materials are ready we will animate them in After Effects. I'll show you how to animate illustrations, shape layers and text using the built in text animators. Once we're done animating we will export our files in the appropriate formats for use in your favorite editing application.

Freelance Motion Designer

Hello, I'm Jeff. Motion design has been my bread and butter for over 17 years. I currently freelance from my home office in Norfolk, VA. I have a beautiful wife and two kids. In my free time I like to geek out over board games, hit the gym, and take a dip in the pool. (not necessarily in that order)
