Motion Graphics Finalists

Motion graphics are a way to communicate with the viewer, and add depth to a story. Together with music and effective copy, they can give us a message. We use them to create ads, title sequences for movies, videos and to share information.

I was very intrigued by art as a subject ever since young. l enjoy observing the different forms and mediums of art, from paintings to sculptures. And that has led me to study communication design. Throughout my journey as a graphic designer, I realized that motion design was something that I was interested in and decided to pursue it.

Well, I've always been creative. I started pursuing an architectural degree and quickly learned that I despised mathematics... I took a hiatus from formal schooling to explore my passions and quickly grabbed onto graphic illustration. Upon my application to Ringling, my advisor said that given the wide variety of mediums I enjoyed working with, giving Motion Design was well worth a shot! The rest is history.

Growing up in a small city in the Philippines, art, music and film has always been a form of escape for me. A career in the creative industry didn’t just seem unfathomable, it was also unheard of from where I come from. But despite this seemingly impossible pursuit, my love for art, animated films and the creative world just kept getting stronger as I grew up.

Once I had a chance to edit campaign promotional trailer of a student dance exhibition. After that, I found that I can present my ideas more clearly in the form of visualization and animation, which further stimulates me to enter this industry.

When I was young, I captured my dreams and whimsical thoughts by putting them on drawing paper. I love imagining myself touching and feeling these novel things in the fantasy world I created. After I went to college, those childhood memories helped me put more emotions and empathy into my artwork. This enthusiasm for creation has never faded and allowed me to grow to become a more proficient designer.

Oddly enough, I don't think I've yet to have that realization. I've been creating in one medium or another for as long as I can remember. Creating never seemed like an option but rather something that just was part of me. Deciding to go to school for design seemed like the natural next step. I wanted to pursue a career doing something that I was truly passionate about.

I first realized you wanted to work in the creative media and entertainment industry when I started to work in Cinema 4D. I used to be a digital painter until I started incorporating 3D into my paintings. I made the switch from illustration to motion design my senior year of high school and I am now enrolled in Ringling College of Art and Design's Motion Design major.
