9:50 Personalized Logo Showcase
This morning we are going to take a look at each of your logos. When presenting (it’s casual – don’t get worked up) Share with us:
What was your inspiration or idea?
What was your process?
What challenges did you face?
Feedback. As a class we are going to provide constructive feedback. Think of feedback as a sandwich – a feedback sandwich. I call this Two Stars and a Wish. What are two things you like and what is one area you like to see changed, modified improved. Constructive and supportive feedback only.

We are going to continue on our exploration of Adobe After Effects. We’ll make a nice flower using the repeater and trim paths effect.
With the time left, fill out the rest of your flower garden with flowers, grasses, clouds, birds, you name it.
Rendering and Exporting Demo will be provided. We will me using AME (Adobe Media Encoder)
You can drop in the Cawd Dailies folder. This is not a graded project, but a practice session with support.
12:45 Special Effects and After Effects
There are a lot of effects in After Effects. For some guided practice, let’s take a look at some of the different effects including mattes, generative and distortion effects.
For starters – we are going to make a descriptive effect together.
You cannot go wrong – effects can be layers and the combinations are endless!
