  1. Description/

    Four spots were designed and executed at Brand New School for Google’s “Made by Google Launch Event” on October 2018 in New York City. I was tasked to lead the 2D team of animators for all 2D related animations. For example: all screens for devices, all typography and full screen motion graphic segments. The four spots are: Pixel 3, Pixel Slate, Pixel Stand, Home Hub. Supplement to this was also creating a toolkit for localization for several of the spots.

    As the audience is walking in and taking their seats before being awed by Google’s 2018 keynote at their annual developer conference in Mountain View, California they are welcomed and entertained by the carefully curated branded animations on the gigantic Triple Screen at the Shoreline Amphitheater. A totally of ten 20 to 30 second animations with a core message of “Make Things Better” were the focus of the 20 minute segment, as well as transitional and wallpaper-esque animations to make for a seamless experience. By building a library of elements it allowed animators to quickly structure and formulate animations. Above you’ll see a selection of the overall work and below you will see specific sections I worked on.

  3. Description/

    A series of digital screen adverts were implemented all over the city for Google’s new campaign, “Make Google Do It”. The team I managed animated close to 100 screen with multiple sizes and ratios. The most important aspect of this job was to ensure that Google’s brand guide of both design and animation were always intact. To help with that an automated template with embedded animation and alignment was created for all the animators.
