One thing that evident is the global work place has shifted to freelance and contract individuals. The design industry is probably at the forefront of this revolution. Dealing with billing, contracts, client relations and still being creative is all too common. One of the top “Title Designers” gives folks some insight into his process via Motionographer interview. ( link here ) I’ve worked as a contractor during my serious learning phase for about 9 years. Btw in the design indsutry you should always have the student mentality / philosophy.
“I’ve been a freelancer for almost 10 years, and even though I’ve always worked remotely, I’ve managed to keep a close eye on the industry at large.
The distance makes it crucial that I’m aware of studios and people, who’re working where and doing what, which companies are thriving and which have seen better days. That’s how I feel close and connected to the industry without actually being there.
A big part of this is that I use social media to not only as a tool to promote my work but also as a way to keep track of other people are making. Instagram is becoming increasingly the best way to do that, as it seems to focus on design (at least in my feed). It also helps to get a bird’s eye view of trends in the industry, which can be a good way to escape them. ” – Filipe Carvalho
Some of Filipe’s work:
It’s been an eventful 2018. My love of design and art has grown exponentially. Motiontrgger is just a place where I get to express my appreciation for other in these communities. Usually “Best Of” lists make me cringe..haha Here are some places doing proper list for 2018 if that’s your thing.
2019 Motiontrgger will continue to float through digital realm to posting our most inspiring eye candy. Thanks for you attention over the years!!
Great sequence/s of animation, design and technique. A short blurb about the project by artist below.
London 2012 introduced us to ‘The Superhumans’, many of whom are now household names. We’ve selected six of our finest and have hand crafted beautiful expressions of their abilities, personalities and Paralympic glories through authentic Brazilian illustration and painstaking cel animation. Our sequence picks up our athletes from London 2012 and delivers them to Rio 2016 in an explosion of Brazilian energy and colour.
