So, What is your approach when making motion graphics? I'm an animator and a typographer looking to bring together my two loves, but I feel stuck when making dynamic type.

Heyo, thanks for the question! What I like to do is start with a shape, then take whatever I’m incorporating into it, whether it be another shape or color and try to blend them together through motion. 

You can start with a letter and make it resemble a shape, like turning an “N” into a graphic rectangle shape by connecting the two openings at the top and bottom of the letter with a simple line. From there, do some secondary motion by spinning it or something. It’s cool to be mindful of how colors play into it. Use these subtleties to bring in more text, or to transform Shapes>Text or Text>Shapes. 

I can do a short example for you this weekend to try to illustrate what I’m saying a bit better. I’m not amazing at it, but I’ll try visually show you.

Thanks so much man. This was wonderfully helpful still. You’re cool people man.

Hey, no worries. This was a packed weekend with a surprise visit from the parents and Pittsburgh Comic-Con. I’ll have a short .gif made this week involving typography and motion. Thanks for looking at my stuff!

Hey guys! So i decided to finally open up commission’s after my laptop died, in hope’s of getting some extra funds towards a new one! If this goes well i will continue doing them in the future. My goal is to gather up around $500 throughout august/september. Sharing and spreading the word is an amazing help, Thank you everyone!

Will do ☆

  • Humans
  • Furries
  • Ponies
  • Mostly anything not distasteful or X rated.

Won’t do ☆

  • Mecha
  • Smut

☆☆☆ Send commission requests to my ask box please ☆☆☆

  • Include your email or skype and i will continue from there. 
  • PRICES ABOVE IN USD
  • Simple color backgrounds included if desired

How It works:

☆ Once a request has been submitted & approved I ask that you send the full commission amount to my paypal, the payment will NOT be accepted until the commission is completed & approved.

☆ Once approved by me i will Sketch the request and get your approval, once approved i’ll move onto completing your commission, emailing the hi-rez image after completion.

Slots will refill as i complete orders

My female counterpart is accepting commissions. She’s one hell of an artist. If you get something done by her with these prices, you’re getting a great bargain.
