Treat Yo Self – Motion Typography

Animation, Video

I’m a huge Parks and Recreation fan. So I made this!

This video was all me (besides the audio of course). From the text (Photoshop) to the graphics (Illustrator) it’s all my work. It was a fun project! I really enjoyed it. Animation is just plain fun.

I used photoshop word plates when making this video. Basically, I arrange all of my graphics and text inside of Photoshop, then bring the PSD document into After Effects. The text layers convert to editable type and I find it way easier to arrange everything in Photoshop.

With all the layers on they look something like this:

Then you just animate backwards. Everything is already lined up where you want it to end! It made this project move a lot faster!
