Bachelor of Design
Motion Design

Of all the things I’ve learned in Motion Design at Ara, I've discovered concept art is my passion. The time-consuming process of keyframing and animating each scene in After Effects and endless layers in Photoshop brings out the full richness of a composition and demonstrates its depth.

Designing concept art for a massively multiplayer online game (MMO) was my mission for my final project. The game is set in a universe where the players are mercenaries in a world where three factions compete for dominance, using weapons and tools. My inspiration came from researching 16th, 19th, and 21st Century items of war. I enjoyed designing body armour for multiple warring factions.

Following graduation, I intend to do some freelance concept drawing work while also honing my artistic abilities and expanding my portfolio. Whether I put pen to paper or sit in front of a computer, it’s a challenge I enjoy. I wish to be employed in a design studio.
