Island of the Self

Motion Design

Spring 2017


Motion is a critical aspect of product design; it brings design from visual to interactive. Exploring motion design has helped me to better understand the capabilities of motion in the digital sphere.

Using Adobe After Effects, I animated Thich Nhat Hanh's poem "Island of the Self." My goal was to pace the movements to mimic the rhythmic breathing of meditation. I chose to use balance bright colors with simple visuals to visualize the delight and positivity of the poem while inspiring serenity and relaxation.
