Song lyrics fly across the screen in time to music. A globe spins and zooms into a war-torn country. Money rises from a screen to explain an economic situation. Now, more than ever, we are surrounded by these motion graphics on our TV and cinema screens, on our smartphones, computers, and tablets, on Main Street and in our galleries.

Reviews for Motion Graphics: Principles and Practices from the Ground Up

Motion Graphics provides an informative breakdown of the key concepts in this field, while also delivering technical advice and vivid color visuals to assist students in understanding this medium and the many ways it can be used to visually communicate rich and complex ideas. -- Julia DeArriba-Montgomery, Florida State College of Jacksonville, US Motion Graphics delivers an accessible range of reference materials and projects. I would particularly recommend this text to foundational level HE students who might be unfamiliar with moving image based workflows. The book is clear and concise in its definitions of the most relevant terminology. A particular highlight must be with quality of examples referenced from various professional practice based creative agencies, along with short but insightful interviews covering each agencies individual approach to the design process.
