Movable Type: Animation for Typographers
Motion plays an increasingly pivotal role in graphic design, from UI ineractions to logo animations to full-scale motion graphics sequences, but it can be intimidating to designers whose experience is primarily in static, type-focused disciplines.

In this 10-week course, you’ll learn the basics of Adobe After Effects as well as the fundamental principles of animation and its effect on design, typography, and meaning. Through a series of lectures and hands-on projects, you’ll learn techniques for making your static compositions come to life—how to craft motion styles, how to fine-tune timing, how to tell a story through cause and effect—as well as an overview of After Effects’ arsenal of type-based effects. You’ll leave with a generous foundation in a wickedly fun new discipline, making motion a fundamental addition to your toolkit.

Required Materials:
Laptop with Adobe After Effects CC CC 2015 or later, as well as Illustrator and/or Photoshop
