Description

You're here because you want to design your own motion graphics that grow your brand, right?

It's great to have you here! I love using After Effects to design motion graphics.

Watch any professional commercial, YouTube channel, or television series, and one thing they all have in common is that they have a video intro!

These video intros (or video bumpers as many people call them in the video industry) are eye-catching, brand-strengthening, and audience-growing.
