About This Class

Explore how Motion Designer, Mike Martin, creates fun and interesting banner by developing an animated typeface from scratch.  Together you’ll breakdown an efficient way to organize comps in your After Effects project. As well as, how to create playful animations using shape layers and various effects. By the end of the class you’ll have a custom animated font to use however you like. Minimal After Effects knowledge is necessary to follow along, and there should be a few tips and tricks for experienced AE users.

Creating is what I was Created for.

This was a super-engaging class, and I'd happily take another one of his classes in the future. Mike's steps are clear and logical, and his expression and plug-in tips are super useful. I'll definitely use what I've learned from this class!
cool class :)
