During my time at EatFishDesign, I was tasked with creating videos for the Product Design students at University of Leeds on how to use Adobe software.
I received brief guidelines for the general direction of the styling (use of colours and angular elements). However, I was given much freedom regarding the rest of the design choices within the videos. It was quite the learning curve for me as it was the first time I had experienced video creation.
After receiving the audio for the videos, I used screen-capture on QuickTime to record myself using the software and then editing the video segments using Premiere Pro and AfterEffects. Icons and illustrations included in the videos were created by me using Illustrator and animated by myself.
As the students were in their first year university, I wanted to create friendly videos as software like this can be intimidating to people who may not be used to them. I opted for a cartoony look with rounded corners and edges, which is quite a popular trend with young adults.
The final video is a speedpainting of me rendering a few coffee cup designs in different materials. This was be shown on a screen during the Photoshop for students to reference.
