After effects - first attempt. /quote research


So, I've never used after effects before. Which is pretty apparent from this video. Nonetheless, I watched a few tutorials and tried some very basic things just to see if I could get it to work. Experimenting and learning. This includes a portion of my David Bowie quote that I listed in the previous post. 



{don't laugh}





Quote Research

  • Charles Eames
    • "Take your pleasure seriously."     
    • "If nothing else, a student must get from his training a feeling of security in change." 
    • "Who is to say that pleasure is useless." 
    • "Eventually everything connects." 
  • "Simple is good."  - Jim Henson
  • "Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent." - Joe Sparano
  • "Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future." - Robert L. Peters
  • "Thinking about design is hard, but not thinking about it can be disastrous." - Ralph Caplan "Design cannot rescue failed content" - Edward R. Tufte
My final quote chosen : 

 "I don't know where I'm going but I promise it won't be boring." - David Bowie 


Most of the quotes I came across were very specific to design. The way I see it, once you commit yourself to the world of design, everything in life is relevant to your work. I also chose this quote because it reflects how I feel about this year. I made a decision back in August to take this journey no matter how difficult it would prove to be. Few things are more exciting than getting the chance to make your dreams a reality. 

Side note-  David Bowie specialized in layout and typesetting in the 60's at Bromley College of Art. It was at this very school that he was punched in the eye by a fellow student (allegedly over a girl) leaving him with a permanently dilated alien eyeball.
