Welcome to my folio website! I’m a front end designer/developer with a passion for interaction design with a UX focus. I have four years of industry experience and have a degree in Multimedia & Digital Arts. I have learned a wide variety of secondary skills to enhance my primary skills, including client management, project and proposal development, business improvement, graphic design, and animation.

Reflections

Reflections is a short animation that examines what it means to reflect back on one’s life choices and create new meaning from that reflection. It was made to demonstrate this concept as a part of a gallery setup idea for the end of year design exhibition at Monash.

The Remade Version

The animation was reworked twice: the first time was a short burst of vector based animation drawn in Illustrator and then taken into After Effects for rendering and editing. Once I regained some time after university I revisited the project and thought about how I could enhance the feel that I was going for: nostalgic dream-like images. I collected a bunch more images like the ones below and reworked them in Photoshop for use in the remake of the animation, the result of which is the animation on Youtube that you now see.

The Dreamscape

The dreamscape was based on real images that were collected together into a mood board, some more conceptual and some more directly the basis for the artwork itself.

All together there were 15 scenes made for the animation in Illustrator, and in the remade version elements like the butterflies and bubbles were added as images instead of vector assets.
