Designing for Motion

February 9/10, 2019

What you'll learn:

One of the things we do daily at Sarofsky is communicate to clients to help them visualize an idea so they better understand what something is going to be like without us actually doing it. Sometimes we communicate via style frames, sometimes motion boards and sometimes motion tests. In this workshop we will provide a creative brief similar to an actual job we have produced. Each of the  participants will be given the opportunity to develop a pitch for how they would bring their idea to life. In the end, you will have created a presentation with one or many solutions to the creative brief.

Designing for motion is for any designer or artist who is curious about how to start bringing their work to life in motion. Ideally, you will have experimented with After Effects or Premiere in the past, just so that the program isn’t completely foreign to you. However, it is not requirement for taking this course.

  • How to communicate through still frames how something is intended to move
  • Translating a concept into a pitch-ready board
  • Styleframe design techniques
  • Understanding the producibility of a board within the given budget
  • Advanced students can bring their board to life with a motion test

Software you'll use:

Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects and Cinema 4D (optional)
