Sophomore students added another dimension to their design work – motion. Using Photoshop CS4, the Bismarck State College Graphic Design and Communications students created simple animations to showcase an idea. The assignment is essentially a creative exercise pushing them to use their skills and tools to produce something completely different from what they have done in the past.
The line fading away is a time-consuming technique to use.
Come fly with me is part of a larger animation that includes color. The completed animation is a little too large to post here.
The spaceship crash embraces the strengths of animation. As the spaceship gets smaller it appears to change course.
The archer illustration is interesting on its own, but becomes even more intriguing as an animation.
This student took the assignment and ran with it, the only thing the ad is missing is audio. Unfortunately, when it was down-sampled for Web use the animation lost a bit of its pop.
