Adding movement to the graphic design represents a new layer of expression for any creator, but also another layer of difficulty. To facilitate this transition, Borja Holke - motion designer with more than 10 years of experience and clients like Canal + and Converse - will teach you to master the timing and the acceleration curves in Adobe After Effects to help you create your own movement language.

In this course you will learn how to use the professional animation tools available in After Effects from scratch.
