Below I have found inspirations, research and case studies on self-branding and portfolio/ showreel trailers/ etc.
Gracie Burton is a very good example of the aesthetic, style and quality I am aiming to achieve. I like the way she promotes her brand and it all follows a similar house style. I also like how she has created a motion graphics trailer.
From this, I decided to look into more motion graphics portfolio trailers. Here are a few of the videos I looked at.
What do I like? What can I incorporate into my project?
- Smooth animations
- Quick and fun motion graphics
- Bursts and little animated assets
- Kinetic text
- The google search effect
I also looked at websites that offer advice and tips on designing a good portfolio. This is useful to ensure my website and portfolio is matching current trends and stands out from the competition.
