By September 5, 2013Motion Design & Animation

One field of design that has grown and developed in pace with technology is  Motion Graphics. All motion graphics are created with technology and are dependent on it. The more technology evolves the more advanced motion graphics become. Though the field is subject to change with new technological developments, there will always be a need for artists endowed with basic design skills, regardless of the tools available.

Many of the breathtaking effects in TV shows and movies cannot be staged and motion graphics are responsible for those fancy effects we all so love. TV stations and Film production studios have high demand for people skilled in motion graphics and vfx. The technology is constantly pushing the limits of what is possible, and this exciting industry is only bound by the limits of human imagination and the skills of the artist.

The term motion graphics is pretty self explanatory. It is defined as “graphical communication that incorporates movement over time” a bit technical but what you’d expect from a definition. MG encompasses a lot of different design disciplines, including moving type, traditional cel and stop-motion animation, film, digital video production, 3d, Flash animation and 3d elements.

You’ll encounter motion graphics in advertisements and introductions… actually it’s hard not to come across an example of MG just by switching on the TV!
