GD 203: Project 2 – Shape Transition Animation

Create a set of at least four icon illustrations representing the theme of graphic design, graphic design students, or visual communication in general. Take a look at this Graphic Design Student Survey and consider these categories:

  • Career Expectations
  • Work Habits
  • Student Lifestyle
  • Creative Inspiration
  • Student Finances

Create an animation of no longer than 30 seconds. The animation will be used as part of a documentary about graphic design students. The video will be accompanied by audio of your choice.

Ideally the final animation should also loop so that it can be converted to an animated gif file.

Project 2 due week 9, November 19.

Below are some animations and tutorials that utilize shape transitions in interesting ways.
