The challenge of this project was to make an animation strictly without imagery and only use typography, color, lines, and dots. As a strategy to familiarize myself with Adobe AfterEffects, I used the project as an opportunity to learn the tools and effects by experimenting with transitions. With “Lights Up” by Harry Styles as my choice of audio, I made use of color by creating a flashing gradient that synced up to particular parts of the song to simulate lights. Simple typography does not distract from the overall visual design and guides the viewer through the entire animation. Minimal use of dots creates impact when they are incorporated into transitions.
