Kinetic Typography

I’m back! I can’t believe I haven’t posted since 2014! (womp womp!)

I think I have found my new love…. KINETIC TYPOGRAPHY! 

What is it exactly?

It’s the best of both worlds: motion and typography used video animation to make it even COOLER!

There are tons of amazing videos that infuse this style. One of my favourites growing up was Kanye West feat. T-Pain – Good Life, who incorporated it into his music video using whiteboard animation, graphic design and motion design… I just had no idea what it was and how it was done! Until now! For more examples, go here to watch some really amazing examples of this fusion.

I’ve been killing it on YouTube and SoundCloud, listening and watching new stuff. I can’t believe I didn’t get to this sooner. Thanks to After Effects (a program I was terrified to even touch before), anything is possible. I have a long way to go in terms of learning and building my skills to a more advanced level… PRO-FESSSSH!

Here’s one animate intro I used for class using my name:

Got any resources/examples/tutorials I should be watching? Any amazing motion graphic artists I should be following and totes creeping their work?

Please let me know! Gracias!
