About this Bootcamp

Motion Design integrates graphic design principles with the concepts of video to create engaging and powerful experiences. It has become ubiquitous today in the things we see and places we go – from food menu screens at McDonald’s, apps on your phone, and social media content to TV commercials, films, websites, and ad campaigns.

In this bootcamp you will explore the exciting world of Motion Design! You will learn why Motion Design is one of the highest in demand disciplines in the design industry – and how to create content using industry standard techniques, principles, and software. Regardless of whether you want to be a graphic designer, art director, illustrator or work in film and video, understanding the process of motion design is invaluable. This workshop is taught by a multi-Emmy-award winning motion designer and director at one of the best and most affordable Communication & Design programs in the most competitive markets in the world: New York City.
