The main piece is a title sequence created for the shot The Handmaids Tale. This introduction to the show resembles the journey of a flower, as a metaphor of the journey of a woman, as it is being nurtured and controlled by a theocratical utopia managed by men.

Create a design board for a type driven project. Typography should be the hero and focus of your concept. Type as hero for motion graphics projects are typically Title Sequences, Kinetic Type, and Info Graphic projects. Any of these can work for this assignment as long as type is considered and treated in an interesting manner.
The whole idea of how someone’s skills would be used in the future, or how someone feels that he/she was born in the wrong time or that they belong to a different time and space.
This piece explores and intends to question the relation between belonging, space and time.

Create a Design Board in the manner of Info-Graphic / Data Visualization. The ability to translate information and data both functionally and beautifully into visual form is a vital skill for designers. The need for this kind of design is growing for Motion Graphics, ranging from entire pieces based on info-graphics and kinetic type to dynamic user interfaces utilizing motion design.
Nature behaves sometimes like a spider web. It is a structure that has different threads that hold it together and make everything work. It has different shapes, it changes with time, it overcomes different situations but at the end it is very fragile. Its threads are strong when they are together and weak when they are by themselves.
Every time a thread is broken the rest of the threads gain more tension and they loose their capacity to hold the structure effectively. It comes to a point in which the remaining ones can’t hold it any more and the structure falls apart. The color grading represents human muscles and the idea of the different scales in which nature can be found, from spider webs, and muscles to a galaxy.
These are some logo animations done as an exercise to practice simple but effective motion that adds value to the brands relevance in a moving digital world.
