Motion Graphics

Design and Motion Graphics introduces students to the principles and elements of motion design through studio practices at beginning and advanced levels. The first phase, “type in motion”, emphasizes the relationship between typography principles and animation fundamentals. The second phase is an advanced applied approach to the language and principles of motion – building upon existing knowledge in the first phase; synthesizing the language of motion simultaneously with an emphasis on narrative and narrative structure. In addition to stressing systems, structure, and synthesis of text and image for time-based media, the course also provides knowledge and skills in digital creativity.
