Find Joy in the Ordinary


My hand lettering skills are, well… pretty non existent, so I decided to cheat and use a script font instead! 

I started off by playing around in Illustrator with a few different ideas before moving into After Effects. As the project developed I started to concentrate on a few individual letters (like the ‘F') by animating each path of the character individually. This helped the animation feel less static and more fluid. Everything was feeling a bit flat so I decided to make the text interlink with the background image to give the animation a bit more depth.

All in all it was a great class and a lot of fun to create!
