Freelance Motion Graphics

I create engaging motion graphics for a range of uses whether it be online video, television commercials, broadcast graphics to name a few. In addition to animating we can develop the visual style and storyboard the concept, or if you’ve already got that covered you can pass on your artwork to me to animate.

Motion Graphics (also known as broadcast design or motion design) is generally 2D animation comprising of graphic design assets including typography, icons, and other graphics. This style of animation has become increasingly popular in the past few years as it’s visually striking and engaging and is able to communicate a lot of often detailed and complex information in a short period. It has been used extensively on television commercials and programs, but the greatest use is on the web where these videos are taking centre stage on home pages to describe products or services. Where a user would in the past need to digest extensive amounts of text, they can now sit back and have all this information delivered in a brief and entertaining video.
