    Motion Graphics Demo Reel

    Motion Graphics / Illustration / Storyboard

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION

    This is a quick show case of my latest motion graphics projects, containing logo animations, game trailers, animated infographics, image videos, video documentations, explanatory films, interactive exhibits, openers for presentations and kinetic typography in 2D and 3D. I am capable of realizing my projects from scratch, starting with the storyboard, creating graphics and illustrations and of course developing the animation.

    Pudding Panic

    Game Design / Art Direction / UI Design / Level Design

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION

    For Berlin based indie game developer kunst-stoff I worked as lead level designer for the award-winning real-time puzzle game „The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic“ (iOS, Mac and PC). Moreover I designed the early user interface, the website www.thegreatjitters.com, redesigned kunst-stoff‘s company website, was responsible for several promo graphics and the official screenshots for different platforms. Later I was in charge of the art direction and game design for the free to play version „The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic Reloaded“. I reworked the GUI with focus on the free 2 play elements, ensured a homogenous art style by leading the other artists, created, integrated and balanced the free to play elements and once again took care of the official screenshots.

    TOOLS

    Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign

    Direct & Defeat

    Game Design / Graphic Design

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION

    I developed this turn-based boardgame adaptation of the classic real-time strategy game „Command & Conquer“ during my studies, beginning with research, conception, game design, prototyping, playtesting and finishing with designing the final graphics and product. Two play modes, a mutable board and event cards that allow strategical combinations make it highly replayable. The modular design also allows for the easy development of expansion packs. Judging from the time and effort that went into this project, this could have easily been my bachelor thesis. Some of the play testers played the game even better than me, which I understand as proof of good game design.

    TOOLS

    Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, cutting machine, punch press, spray adhesive, Canon EOS 550D





    Talentpool

    Corporate Design / Graphic Design / Motion Graphics

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION

    Working for one of my clients, Berlin based YOUNECT LCC , I developed the corporate design for the „Talentpool“. Since the product‘s benefit is rather complicated to explain, I choose an info graphic art style. That way I designed the logo, logo animation, different graphics for the web and print, various print products and trailers using 3D motion graphics.

    TOOLS

    Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, After Effects, bodalgo.com
