Learn how to use After Effects techniques to animate typography. Sophie Elinor, typographer and graphic designer, will demonstrate how to:

  • Play with different ways of adding personality and narrative to static lettering designs using animation
  • Discover how versatile, visually engaging, and downright fun just a few simple After Effects techniques can be
  • Bring your linework to life with trim paths
  • Morph and stretch your vector outlines with path animation
  • Make your drawings dance with the Puppet Pin tool

Together, we’ll add the final polish of ease and offset to transform flat, typographic designs into lively, looping animations.
