Since childhood, I have admired the works and culture embedded in Japanese
animations and through this, my passion for Motion Graphics flourished. Just like
an image speaks a thousand words, Motion Graphics has the ability to exert the
same element which I find powerful yet intriguing. A moving image is a piece of
visual communication that is universally used and with this in mind, even though
different languages and cultural influences are imminent; we still able to
understand what is being communicating to us even without information
to guide us which I find remarkable.
After studying at the University of Hertfordshire for four years, I have been able
to strengthen my skills within Motion Graphics. Together with my ability to design
and create conceptual and purposeful ideas, my skills within Motion Graphics have
developed. In 2016, my animation “Japan is born again” for D&AD’s Shutterstock brief
was nominated for the New Blood Award. This is such a great achievement for me as
it highlighted that my work as a Graphic designer has been appreciated on a wider scale
and as a result, heightened my passion for connecting my culture within my designs.
