Motion Meditations – breathing in and out with motion design
— After Effects + mindfulness
— Personal project
Teeny motion design explorations based on breath done in After Effects. The gentle movement of minimalist elements mimic the rhythm of breathing in and then outwards, nudging the viewer into the same calm tempo with their breath. As a designer, I think a lot about the physical impact of technology on the body. Now more than ever we stare at screens, and negotiate heaps of stress and anxiety on a daily basis. How might we as designers consider the impact of our output on the mental and physical well-being of our users?
