Motion graphics (or motion design) is a growing profession with its roots in video editing, animation, and graphic design. Creating engaging and meaningful motion graphics requires a technical knowledge of the software programs involved, as well as a knowledge of motion graphics workflow, an awareness of current and past visual styles and trends, and an ability to critique our own work and those of our collaborators.
This hands-on, individualized course will take your current software and design skills to the next level. You'll learn the principles of motion graphics and the best practices to create unique motion graphics from concept to completion, resulting in portfolio-worthy projects to show potential clients.
See our full suite of motion graphics classes: Premiere Pro and After Effects.
Take our Premiere Pro and After Effects courses along with this one, to earn a Certificate in Motion Graphics.
In this in-depth motion graphics course, you'll create several projects for your portfolio, including (but not limited to) a logo animation, a social media ad, an infographic animation, and a book or movie trailer.
Assignments will be critiqued by both the instructor and during group critiques. You'll then revise your work as needed, and finish the assignment either in class or outside of class as homework (you should expect to work outside of class). By the end of the Motion Design Portfolio course, our hope is that you'll have at least three finished motion graphics animations for your portfolio. The instructor is available throughout the course duration, to provide feedback and advice, both during and outside of class.
Upon completion of this course, you’ll receive an official certificate testifying to your mastery of the curriculum. We’ll send you a link where you can download your certificate, share it online with your friends, post it to your professional network on LinkedIn, and view all your earned certificates. Congratulations on your achievement!

Step-by-step instruction to boost retention
The Career Centers instructors are highly skilled communicators who really know their craft. They are wonderful about explaining and re-explaining when necessary and I never felt rushed or foolish for asking a question.

This motion graphics certificate is a comprehensive bootcamp-style program that will take you from novice to pro. We'll work intensively with Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, and you'll leave with a portfolio-ready demo reel.
Get comfortable with After Effects by creating standalone videos, animations, special effects, animated titles, and more. Make professional videos for web and TV broadcast in no time at all.
You’ll learn how to organize and import footage, exporting options, how to use the Timeline, create titles, work with PSDs, use audio tracks, and more. Then, we'll dive into more advanced features including multicam editing, color correction, speeding up footage, and stop-motion loops.
In this intermediate/advanced After Effects course, we’ll master motion graphics workflow to create advanced projects, from initial design to final delivery.
