Motion Graphics - Trolley Animation

  • I created all the vector artwork for this using Adobe Illustrator CC. I created this motion graphics animation using Adobe After Effects CC.
  • This was the original artwork for the Trolley Animation.

    My inspiration behind the houses was to mimic the houses in the photographs below. I found the photographs on a Google search for San Francisco houses. The houses looked so cheerful that I wanted to bring out this feeling in my artwork by saturating the colors more. I also wanted to simplify the house designs in my vector artwork so it had a cleaner, lighter feel to the animation. In the end, I removed the flowers from the final animation since so much was already happening in the design and I found the flowers to be distracting from the trolley and boat. I also redesigned the sun in the final animation to create a more dynamic composition with varying circle sizes and opacities.
