Tiny animations

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.

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.
