Graphic Design & Motion Graphics

Graphic design, also known as communication design, is the art and practice of planning and projecting ideas and experiences with visual and textual content. The form of the communication can be physical or virtual, and may include images, words, video or graphic forms. Designers are also responsible for interactive designs where the content is fluid, sometimes changing minute to minute, as well as interfaces that help users navigate through complex digital experiences.

Design Principles

  • Balance – It’s important for web designers to create a balanced layout.
  • Contrast – In color theory, contrasting colors are ones placed opposite one another on the color wheel.
  • Emphasis – A design principle founded in the intentional “highlighting” of certain important elements of the website layout.
  • Consistency – Also called repetition or rhythm, consistency is a critical web design principle.
  • Unity – Is the relationship between the various parts of the website layout and the composition as a whole.

Graphic Design & Video Examples

Graphic Design is the art or profession of using design elements (such as typography, color, space and images) to convey information or create an effect. As a highly visual society we cannot seem to go a day without noticing the golden arches, that is McDonald’s or the swirls of the Coca Cola Font. Graphic designs are present everywhere whether it's a newspaper, magazine, Packaging, branding, websites, posters, books or signage. Often time’s people think of graphic design as the icing on top of the cake, but it’s really the bread and butter of your company. Graphic design is a major part of the whole process and when done by an artistic professional you will attract your target market and increase the sales of your business activity among some of the reasons for a professionally designed item.

Motion Graphics

As digital technologies continue to create innovations in the world of experiential graphic design, motion design is becoming an increasingly important competency. Essentially, motion design is a discipline that applies graphic design principles to filmmaking and video production through use of animation and visual effects. Examples include films, videos, animated text, and web-based animations and apps. Motion graphics is like a great graphic design but put into motion. Or as we are used to saying "Video Effects." Whatever you are working on whether it is a website or a YouTube channel make sure you have your intro and outré done by a professional for that special and unique look. Motion graphics are usually combined with audio, which makes them closer to films than static info graphics. Get yours done today!

Video Compositions done in Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects

This is a project we had to do for our Motion Graphic class at The University Of Art in San Fran. It was a lot of work but I love After Effects where you can virtually make anything move. This is also one that I used part of a soundtrack that had music instead of words. The beginning of the song was from my library done by David Arkenstone, "Around The World." This will be changed month to month to showcase new work.
