Rhythm, Time, and Motion

How can we combine text, shapes, and color with movement to create emotional and information experiences?

How can designers integrate motion into their work? This question was never asked when all designers had to do was create lovely concert posters or industrial designs. Today though, interaction and service design greatly relies upon movement to convey meaning and emotion.

Time, Motion, and Communication is a class at CMU that explores how designers can use simple animation means to create rich and emotional experiences.

The video above visualizing a piece of music (One of Bach’s solo cello pieces), and the videos below all come from this semester-long class. All videos were solo creations.
