Who is this for?
05

This course is for designers, creative entrepreneurs, beginner animators, and video editors who want to increase their value with animation.

After ten years of experience and endless nights, I realized that simplicity is the best approach. When I was working on projects for big brands like Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Adobe, Village Roadshow, Dixons, Hyundai, etc., I learned that clients preferred simple things. Simple solutions reveal confidence. When I was trying to impress clients, I spent hundreds of hours creating animations for their brands, and their feedback was often a bit negative. Those experiences made me think more creatively. This course will show you how to unleash your creativity, impress your clients, and make income!
