To Plant a Garden is to Believe in Tomorrow

Hello everyone,

I’m happy to share with you my project. For those who are not familiar with me or my work, I’m Leo Gomez. I specialize in hand lettering, logo design and brand identity for creative businesses. Nice to meet you! By the way, feel free to introduce yourself in the comments, let’s connect! 

Overview:

After effects and animation has been an interest of mine for a few years, I was looking to learn a few techniques to animate my designs. Also, during this time I was experimenting with monoline lettering and smiliar typographic styles, so the “Write On” technique was very appropriate. 

I created a custom hand lettering design inspired by the quote: To Plant a Garden is to Believe in Tomorrow, by Audry Hepburn. My goal was to use this design for a short animation that I could use to share a few personal words for the new year with my audience on Instagram. Also, I thought the “Write On” technique was great for adding an extra layer of love, joy and encouragement to the quote and my message.

These were my words shared on Instagram:

I believe in perspective, purpose and intention, and these are things I remind myself on daily basis. As the new year evolves I can see growth in the future. But in order to grown we must plant a seed and cultivate it. Each day we need to focus inward and take a bunch of small steps towards reaching the big goal.

I love this quote by Audry Hepburn because it reminds to believe in my personal journey, and to water my own garden to find the place I seek to be.

What are your plans for this year? How do you imagine your garden? I would love to know. 

I approached this class with no knowledge of After Effects. The worked showcased here is mine, created in my studio in St. Petersburg, FL. Additonal credits: Photography - Unplash.

Huge thanks to Jake for the great class! He really knows what he is doing. I believe he has a very unique way of teaching, it's very clear, straight forward and easy to understand. I recommend this class to anyone looking to properly learn cool animation techniques in After Effects.
