Design an animated iPad cover for a digital issue of IDN magazine titled The Geometric Issue. Students must demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the techniques learned in Adobe After Effects.
IDN is known for being an international publication for creative people with a mission to amplify and unify the design community. For this reason, I chose to go wild with the idea of geometry and graphic design. The first step in my process for creating something animated was to choose the music that would accompany the motion. Once I selected the tune, the design came easily as each movement and shape was determined by the beat of the music. Since the selection of music I chose had a modern-80s feel, I chose colors that relayed a similar vibe, and ultimately a layout of a cover that reflected the same tone as well.
