👨🏼 About me
I have been working as a graphic designer for the last 10 years. I have learned After Effects through various courses and tutorials, as well as with the help of friends like Ian Haigh & Mike Tosetto. Motion is a big part of the client work in my role as Senior Designer at Christopher Doyle & Co. for clients like Spotify and TikTok. Now, I am focussing on taking all of this knowledge and applying it in brand design to help bring visual identities to life. My goal is to teach you these skills too so you can reap the rich rewards of motion design (both creatively and financially).

❓Who is this for?
• After Effects beginners. You will benefit if you have other Adobe software knowledge (Illustrator/InDesign/Photoshop), though not strictly necessary.
• Designers looking to upskill and make their work move.
• Anyone with 70 minutes and AUD$7.99 available.

💰 Price
Only AUD$7.99 – with an additional pay-what-you-feel option for the generously inclined.
