Motion graphic is a very powerful tool for designers to communicate ideas in intuitive and dynamic way. With advancement of digital media, the way designers communicate ideas is changing. Traditionally, designers are used to represent projects in two dimensions, using orthogonal drawings and renderings. Today, most of the contents are viewed on computer screen, tablets, and smartphones. The flexibility of viewing medium allows designers use more dynamic approach to represent their ideas.
In the Environmental Motion Design class, students will learn basics of motion graphics, using Adobe After Effects, and Rhinoceros. There are a number of different techniques involved in the production of motion package, including vector, rendered image, stroke effects, types, and so on. The representation of design concepts in motion can be applied to various scale of projects, from furniture and fixture to interior and architecture. The moving images are also useful to convey technical details of projects. A structure of a building can be revealed in dynamic exploded axonometric view. A connection detail can be zoomed in and shown in a precise way.
This class will focus on producing a few short films based on students’ current or previous projects.
