Since childhood, I have admired the works and culture embedded in Japanese animations and through this, my passion for Motion Graphics flourished. Just like an image speaks a thousand words, Motion Graphics has the ability to exert the same element which I find powerful yet intriguing. A moving image is a piece of visual communication that is universally used and with this in mind, even though different languages and cultural influences are imminent; we still able to understand what is being communicating to us even without information to guide us which I find remarkable.
After studying at the University of Hertfordshire for four years, I have been able to strengthen my skills within Motion Graphics. Together with my ability to design and create conceptual and purposeful ideas, my skills within Motion Graphics have developed. In 2016, my animation “Japan is born again” for D&AD’s Shutterstock brief was nominated for the New Blood Award. This is such a great achievement for me as it highlighted that my work as a Graphic designer has been appreciated on a wider scale and as a result, heightened my passion for connecting my culture within my designs.
