To create a short 10 second intro for my design YouTube page using Adobe After Effects. The intro must include my work, logo, and website.
Understanding After Effects
With this project I really wanted to try and branch out within After Effects and practice using techniques that I have not or don’t typically use. After Effects is incredibly diverse in how one can create interesting content which gives me plenty of room to explore.
I created a storyboard with an incredibly different idea than what I ended up creating. My original idea was to have different fields of design that I would want to showcase slide in with examples and eventually zoom out to reveal that it is the crossbar of the “H” in my logo.
When I initially started creating my idea in After Effects it wasn’t quite coming out how I had hoped. The concept was still interesting but when creating it visually through After Effects, it just didn’t do it for me. I went back to the drawing board and decided to create something different.
