Although my heart and career lie in graphic design, I also have a keen interest in animation, mainly because of my love of ‘Pixar Animation Studios’. When not in the classroom learning about graphics, I did independent studies into the ideas and concepts of animation, including Frank Thomas’ and Ollie Johnston’s ’12 Basic Principles of Animation’.
After hearing a talk from a motion designer, Cennydd Bowles, about how the 12 principles could be applied to motion design, I was inspired to examine this relationship further, and see how those principles can be used in graphic design.
However, there’s a catch this time, as this is officially my first ever guest post! Whoopee!!! Feel free to read the full article on animatedjobs.com, and feel free to browse the rest of their posts. Perhaps you can find a new creative career you could embrace, since as my post demonstrates (as well as my previous blog post), just because your speciality is in graphic design, there’s nothing to stop you from adapting your skills and becoming a fantastic animator!
