Stronger Together



Red Hat sometimes commissions me to create promotional videos for their annual conferences. These range from keynote animations, to title slides, to event openers. Most recently, I was asked to create a promotional video to open their 2017 partner conference.

What made this project interesting and challenging is that the script only consisted of five words. This left room for interpretation with the animation so I used the opportunity to learn some new animation techniques.

Since the concept of this project was already set when Red Hat came to me, most of my research went into creating style and animation tests. I jotted down descriptors like 'light', 'organic', 'fast', 'strong', and 'mechancial', and used those words to inspire several different animation concepts. Above is a montage of some of my sketches that lead to the final product.

About Me

I describe myself as a designer but I'm more of an obsessive generalist. I just love to learn new things. Throughout my career I've found myself working on a range of different projects like creating an employment branding strategy for a global company to filming medieval vikings in the snowy mountains of Utah.

These days, I'm busy hanging out with my daughter and making animations from my home studio in Raleigh, North Carolina.
