After we had been changed groups and worlds and I knew that I would be working on Plant World. I began looking at the common things that make a motion graphic.
Things such as text, images, movement and sound. Graphic design then played a big part in my inspiration and research. The first thing I began working on was typography and text. Exploring organic forms and how they worked in terms of movement. I then used these and applied them into make a quick idea for a type face.
Another aspect in which I looked at was some abstract motion graphics. A main style of animation I would frequently use as a source of inspiration is live visuals, projection, 3D mapping and lights. A quick sketch for an abstract styled motion graphic was to use ‘spores’ as a starting point and let them build outwards and upwards based on the music selected to go with the animation.
