If you had been checking out the graphic design portfolio section of the site during the past couple of days you may have noticed we have a new motion graphic and logo positioned as the first thing showing in the section. It is a series of moving images showing our logo or text ‘Artistic CounterCulture’ with a moving aerial craft or plane whizzing through.
Everything was created from scratch using a stylus or Apple Pencil and an iPad. This means we created the font or text in addition to the graphic design background and spaceship, alongside its propeller system showing the craft leaving smoke behind from the engine as it flies. It is another example of the type of work we can offer from custom or self-created fonts and logos to moving logos or graphic design of any sort. This was an experiment using Procreate’s gif creation engine and working with all of our own assets to create something unique.
Procreate has a feature that can enable us to create moving images of various frames per second of our choosing as either GIFs or MP4 video files. Below, is a version saved as a GIF with at 15 FPS or so. we continued working on it and added more scenes to it which you can see below.
It was difficult to get the plane o craft to fly smoothly orr feel and look smooth. It took a lot of incremental screencap orr graphic desig running one after another and I had to keep trying to fit it so it ligns up as Pocreate is dificult to line up perfetly. Thus it may not seem impessive or is very long, but it took a lot of work even for this -at least compared to working on standard logos and taditional graphic design.
However, we decided to use some of our older assets from the stop motion video we created to make it more interesting and we did not feel like repeating the process to make it as smooth as the flight is shown above, we thought it stil poduces and interesting stop-motion type design at the end. Here is the longer verison with the added content:
I’ve decided to shorten it up and fix the slight background and white border that shows up on upper and lower edges in some of the framed as well as the fact they zoomed too much to this final version thus far:
