Creative Reference: Type, Light, and Physical Space

For this month’s staff post, designer + animator Pat King gives us a glimpse behind his creative process for Motion 2018.


The following mood board is an exploration of type and light in physical space, created as part of designer + animator Pat King’s initial exploration into how digital effects could translate to live in-camera FX.

King has spent the past month working with ECD Elliott Chaffer, FX WRX’s Christopher Webb, and a support team of engineers, producers, and editors to produce a high-impact film distilling the excitement, creativity, and diversity of modern motion design for Motion 2018.

Trollbäck+Company’s experimental main-on-end film for the Motion un-conference’s final year debuts tomorrow night. More to come soon!
