branding + illustration + motion graphics // adobe after effects
Branding, motion graphics project: My Neighbour Totoro is a cute Japanese cartoon from the 80’s that I love. I took it upon myself to update and refresh the brand by using illustration for the 30 second title sequence of the original film to bring it into the 21st century. Working with Adobe Illustrator I drew the characters first followed by putting the video together using After Effects. The final step was to step up the level of engagement with the audience. To do this, I choreographed the music with the movement of different graphical elements on the screen matching the fun sound to the adorable images.
Hit play for the final result.
ideas never stop
Thanks to ecommerce and smart phones, Rokotype can operate day and night, all year round, from anywhere in the world!
Of course, I don't do that. My operating hours are Mon-Fri 9am-5pm :)

As a final project for After Effects, I used screenshots from the NikeID online customization app and animated the still images into a video made up of clips from the Nike FlyKnit commercial. I used masking and rotoscoping so the text appears behind the runners.
