Enrich your motion graphic design work with this substantial investigation of aesthetic principles and their application to motion graphics. Historical reference provides context; design principles serve as building blocks; and an examination of method and technique inspire innovations in your own work. Bring your work to the next level with a command of concepts that include: the language of traditional graphic design and how it can be combined with the dynamic visual language of cinema; pictorial design considerations including the relationships between images and type, hierarchy, form and composition; and, how motion is orchestrated and sequenced to enhance artistic expression and conceptual impact.
