The Creative Studio Courses - Simple Animation for Graphic Designers in Procreate Dreams

💌 Sign Up For My Newsletter & Get Some Freebies! https://bit.ly/4e02FnD Take the new course here: https://skl.sh/4cvGFQK Procreate Dreams continues to delight creatives both hobbyists and professionals alike since its release in late 2023. The app allows artists of all abilities to animate and create motion graphics on the go on their iPad!  The software is very user-friendly but it offers a powerhouse of options that allow users to seamlessly combine illustration and animation tools. As a graphic designer and illustrator, I have found that it is a great option to add a bit of magic and movement to projects. Throughout this class will be working in procreate dreams to animate text. As a graphic designer - creating projects that are text based is quite common. Whether you are designing a logo, a lock up for social media or even title graphics for a YouTube channel, adding a bit of movement can truly up your game and make simple text a bit more eye catching. The beauty of the Procreate Dreams App is that you don’t need to be a professional animator or motion graphics designer to create high quality and fun looking moving graphics. I am hoping, this class can inspire you to create something that you can use for your own YouTube channel or to use for graphics for a type project or even just to share on social media. I’m looking forward to creating with you today! Find this class when it is live on Skillshare: https://www.skillshare.com/en/r/user/jennylezan?gr_tch_ref=on ANT TO CONNECT OR HIRE ME?
