Icon animation is one of the best looking motion graphic pieces you can prepare, and After Effects is the perfect software to create such animations. With the techniques I teach you will be able to either create the icon yourself or use a ready vector you already have to properly prepare it in Adobe Illustrator. Then you will have no problems using that file to create the icon animation from scratch until a ready and finished proejct.
In the class you will learn:
- an entire icon animation workflow and AE tricks,
- how a Illustrator to After Effects workflow looks like
- how to create, prepare and use a vector within after effects,
- how to package, prepare, export and use it anywhere we like!
- Become better at motion graphics by creating a design that is in demand and trending
I prepared this short course to show you a complete Adobe After Effects workflow, from finding, selecting or creating the icon to completing the entire animation. You will learn a few basics about the software and definately have fun creating the project itself, since it involves a lot of useful tricks.
The course is project based and straight to the point to both teach you the tools & software and let you create real-life after effects projects right away together with me. It doesn't require any prior deep knowledge of After Effects at all - but it will be helpful if you know a little about Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects in general or are familiar with other Adobe softwares.
NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN AFTER EFFECTS NEEDED!
MAKE A BEAUTIFUL ICON ANIMATION AND ENJOY IT :)

Hi! My name is Andrzej Pach (but Andrew is easier to say ^^) and I spend my daily time with graphic design, presentations, motion & animation, typography, video editing, and online teaching. Most of my work is done in Adobe After Effects & Microsoft PowerPoint 2019 / 2021 / 365 so naturally, this is the software I want to teach about and share my experience with. I have completed more than 4000 graphic projects for clients, mostly including video animations like intros, outros, and transitions for various YouTube channels & marketers. On Fiverr alone (a freelancing website), I have more than 3500 reviews and 4k+ finished jobs. I would like to share with you the knowledge that I was able to "stack up" during the process. I am always willing to help people out by enhancing their brand and projects.
Who am I?
I'm born in 1989, live in a small village in Poland, and graduated my University in July 2014. A few years back, when I tried to find my "place" after getting hired to prepare a website, flyer, and business card for a local business in my area, I finally "felt it". Since then (2011) I have expanded my skills in this area by completing various graphic, website, and design-related projects. Places like the Warrior Forum, freelancing websites, and graphic contests across the web caught my interest and never let me go. I run my own company since April 2015.
What is the next step?
I've gathered experience by working for several years as a freelancer with a keen focus on handling creative projects ranging from very small businesses to brands and YouTube channels with over 500k subscribers. Now I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge by creating exciting courses that are easy to follow - and most importantly - USEFUL to you. I am looking to work with forward-thinking people who seek to create something original and catchy that will reinforce their brand and follow their vibe. I’m always committed to providing value while giving away random tips to make your workflow easier, no matter what we work on.
What are my mission and passion?
I believe in making the Web Business and Internet Media world a better place because my actions will affect (and hopefully positively shape) my followers, friends, family, and future generations. Since I live in a small village where people work in agriculture or do physical labor, I set the goal for me to be a sort of pioneer in the web-based business field, growing myself as a designer every single day.
You can always contact me, as I don't mind talking to anyone about how I might help your business or about what course topics I might record if you like my teaching style.
To your success, Andrew (Andrzej in Polish) ;)
