Project 4: Conference
VISC 204 Studio | Project 1 | Project 2 | Project 3 | Project 4 | Resources

Imagine it’s the start of your conference. The house is packed. They are ready. Registered. Name tag on. Swag bag in their lap.

The house lights come down. It’s happening. The audience looks up on the stage...

what do they see?

Create a conference opener and system of bumper motion graphics. Use the identity tool kit you are creating in type class. Make it move. Come alive. The opener sets the stage for the event, the bumpers provides visual transitions as speakers come on and off stage.

Work in 1920x1080 pixels dimensions for the opening and bumpers.

1. Make a digital storyboard for Thursday (
