About This Class

building on the find that neil sheering found and put into a course for putting an image in your profile i thought i would investigate further and see if even more could be done to raise awareness when people are looking at your bio. i found something neat and put together a proof of concept to see if it would work, if you go to my bio you will now see something like this! :)


pretty neat huh? :) -- (i'm not a designer so i expect yours to be awesome!)

thing you will learn in this course

  • how to make your own animated banner
  • using keynote to export to movie and then to gif
  • file size considerations when making
  • putting your gif into the cloud to load super fast!
  • potential issues with sizing - best sizing we found
  • do the project, custom ones available!

i'm sure you can see that the scope for doing some awesome animated banners here is massive, push them regularly with new courses as part of your monthly output!

once you have the template you'll find it super easy!

------ my backstory ------

currently saving to buy a laser cutter for co-working and co-creation pod called apiary and get mobile driving a vw t5 transporter across the uk and europe

sold my domain name to evan williams from twitter (they were building medium) for five figures. a great year!

assisted a town called ‘phil campbell’ in alabama (bbc news) which was a life changing event for me in terms of what i wanted to do with the rest of my life

helped lifecast from sleepydog get into the first apple app store to be part of the first 500 apps ever launched worldwide – proud social media moment.

bought a domain, (me-d-em) and ever since I’ve bartered my time as a transmedia digital artist in the social media realm. a brand advocate for word of mouth agencies from behind the lens of a mobile phone or camera.

during regularly drinking sessions at the abbey in burton on Trent I ended up on the team time episode of history hunters which is now unfortunately on youtube
