Dan Johnson is a producer and motion artist at Panda Motion. As part of a promotion for Panda Motion’s sister company, Spin My Logo, Dan took two of my past projects and set to work animating the designs.
The results offer a nice accompaniment to the static brandmarks.
“I made a rippled pulse with varying degrees of opacity. This was then set as the alpha layer to the text in order to reveal it. The wings were made 3d and rotated on the y axis.”
— DAN JOHNSON
“All the pie wedges were parented to a null object. I applied an expression to the rotation that drives the rotation based on the circumference of the circle.”
— DAN JOHNSON
