Project Description

Letter and Animate Your Favorite City or State Using the Write On Technique

ASSIGNMENT

For the class project you’ll be hand lettering and animating your favorite city or state. Once you have your artwork completed, bring it into photoshop or Illustrator and that’s where we’ll start.

If there is something else you would like to letter, or already have lettered, don’t let the class project's theme restrain you. The most important part of this course is the animation, so if there’s something else you’d like to use as your lettering, feel free.

FINAL DELIVERABLE

Post a video or animated GIF of your final animation to the project gallery. Be sure to watch the videos on how to export a video or GIF that's best for web.
