Currently learning Adobe AfterEffects so I can also work on motion graphic projects in the future.
It’s an area of design I’ve always been interested in with the benefits and possibilities brought by animation.

I'll be adding animations to this page that I've done on my learning journey with AfterEffects - watch this space!
