3D Motion Graphics

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.

Singapore | 3dsense Media School

It has always been my hobby to draw and create things. I would dedicate my free time to creating things that were inspired by my surroundings, for example, that rustic soap packaging design, to how a certain mechanism works for a weapon from a certain game. While I was trying out different career options after graduation, I noticed that I would always use design to adapt to the new work environment. This made me realized that I could make it part of my career.

United States | Savannah College of Art and Design

I pursue motion media design as it seems to offer the perfect blend of challenge and freedom for my journey of finding the golden mean between creativity and technicality to craft meaningful narratives. Serving a story and doing justice to the rigor of experimentation through masterful execution is what I passionately strive for. I am currently studying at SCAD, Savannah.

Spain | CICE La escuela profesional de nuevas tecnologías

While I was studing Product Design Engineering and I realised that the part I enjoyed the most was visualization and rendering of the product. After that, in my first job as an engineer, I could investigate and develop more about this matter, so I decided I wanted to properly initiate and specialise in this world.

Category Brief

For this category, the judges want to see examples that include a strong 3D focus to the graphics. The brief is open which means you could use motion design to help tell a story, sell a product or just share a tv or film title sequence. It’s up to you.

Important Notes

  • The judges don’t want to only see simple text animations. These are great, but they are looking for motion design which includes 3D elements and footage.
  • A great tip is to make sure you include the original brief you challenged yourself with. The way you approach and solve the brief is just as important as the finished video.
  • Motion design is a fairly hazy term that overlaps with animation, graphic design and filmmaking. If you want to work as a motion designer, share your work here.

Requirements & Deliveries

  • You must create a single entry page that includes all your best work. Do not create multiple entries with single projects as you will be disqualified.
  • Make sure your work is primarily composed of 3D elements.
  • Put effort into your entry page by including text descriptions, titles, work-in-progress and any include supporting material that you feel will impress the judges.

Judging Criteria

The judges are looking for artists that are ready for the challenges of production. They are looking for artists with a passion for this category and have worked hard to hone their skills.

The judges will be considering your overall presentation, technical skills, creative skills, variety of content, and employment potential. Treat your entry like a job interview. You have one page to show how amazing your skills are.
