Motion Designer Showcase
A look into the lives of our Community Creatives
Siddharth Gandhi. New York City, NY
What inspired you to venture into motion designer?
"I started to learn motion graphics because friends of mine needed interesting looking end credits for their short films. I found out that I really enjoyed combining text and image animations to create aesthetic sequences. I even started to take my favorite comic frames and animate them, which I had a lot of fun with."
How would you describe your design style?
"I’m still solidifying my style as I love experimenting, but I really love making colorful and striking imagery coupled with fluid animation. Even with comic book style clips I enjoy smooth transitions that are satisfying to the viewer. Also, in both more branded content and comic style content, I like giving the motion weight and life so that each movement feels very concrete and satisfying."
What do you hope people get out of your artwork?
"For me when it comes to motion graphics and design the process is so much fun, and If someone finds something I make nice to look at or is entertained by the more parody graphics I do, that makes me really happy. It sounds very simple but I think I like creating art that people see and think, “That looks really cool” or “I had fun watching this.” If anything I hope to encourage more people to make something they really enjoy and keep passing on positivity to each other. On the film side I very much enjoy making stories that center on human beings, experiences and emotions both in humorous and more serious ways."
We created our Actually Slim Fit so guys could find confidence and feel comfortable in the clothes they wear. What does a good fitting shirt mean to you?
"To me, a good fitting shirt is comfortable and breathable allowing for both layered wear and activity without overheating or too much stiffness. It also can’t be too loose so that it feels secure on my body."
What is your full-time gig? Tell us about your side hustles
