Jakob Trollback as a self-taught individual has done wonders with motion graphics and design in general. In his three part talk he covers a lot of ground speaking of anything from the work he has created to his personal beliefs about design and creativity. Many of his motion graphics were very powerful in their use of type and sound. one of my favorite was the one he did for the discovery channel. The transitions were flawless when switching words. Many times the word just remarkably bled into the picture it was panning and to add to this the music was emotionally effective and captured my undivided attention. I also liked the way he created short simple brandings for companies where you could use the template so universally.
