You will start by knowing Borja, who will tell you about his career as a graphic designer and how he got to specialize in motion design . It will also show you some examples of typographic animation that he uses as a reference and the typographic smelters that are on his top.

You will learn to install the two design and animation tools that you will use in the course, Adobe After Effects and Cinema 4D Lite, and take a first look at their interfaces to make sure you have the tools set up as the teacher.

Then the time will come to focus on everything related to typography, including the work and search for fonts with Adobe Fonts and the review of some foundations of typographic design. You will discover two different paths to focus work as a graphic designer and animator: from the concept or from a previous reference.

You will get down to work and learn, by performing specific exercises in After Effects and Cinema 4D Lite, a few different and fun ways to animate texts.

Borja will propose that you design and animate a typographic poster to put into practice everything you have learned so far. It will guide you through the process with some tips to choose the theme of your poster, and you will model your design process and later animation of yours.

What is this course's project?

You will design and animate a typographic poster using the new skills that you will have acquired in the course.
