Came across this trend in the world of art where there are floating islands shown in the sky, space and sometimes in the middle of nowhere. They are quite an eye magnet.
There are 3D as well as 2D versions of it, they can easily be spotted on Dribbble or Behance or you can just Google it.
So i decided to make one myself when had some free time and yes release it as a free wallpaper with some variations in colors which reflected different vibes from each of them.
The awesome and creative folks from Destylio reached me for some fixations to a photographer's website named Aanchal Dhara. They have been working on it past couple of month from the date they contacted me.
They had already coded the major parts of the front end of the site. The only issue faced was with adding responsiveness to the masonry grid gallery and adding animations to it.
So i started by making myself familiar to the code and had a brief idea about the classes and identifies used in CSS(the stylesheet) for various elements in that page.
Added some classes and identifiers myself along with some media queries yo achieve the 2 column grid layout on tablets and a single column grid on smaller screens of mobile phones. The final stage was adding some animations to make the layout transformation smooth which was achieved by using transitions.
xRahg is a Spanish Minecraft gaming channel on YouTube. He contacted me to get an intro made for his channel. I wanted the intro to have it's colors resemble the Minecraft brand, but did not want to match it accurately as Minecraft colors are a little dull(as it's a retro 3D 8-bit style game).
So i took the Minecraft colors and added a little touch of my own and made the colors bright and energetic which somewhat goes with the personality of xRahg. Added animating shapes and paths here and there - and BOOM! A professional looking intro is made.
HALF is a gaming YouTube channel(now started his channel from scratch). He wanted an intro and outro to be made for his channel, following the Flat design principle.
So i made an intro in the same style requested by him. For the outro he needed his character(channel mascot) to be in it. I could have just put the transparent .png image of the character and finished the outro, but it didn't look quite appealing.
Instead of that, i used photoshop to isolate the character elements like eyes and hand so that they can be animated individually. And therefore, the character now comes walking into the outro rather than just standing there from the beginning.
I was working on illustrations for a video about NASA and it's space explorations. This included to show a spacecraft which sent human astronauts to mars.
But it wasn't a reality yet and hence there were no reference images to base my illustrations on. So i took the Hermes from the movie "The Martian". Unfortunately, due to some scheduling reasons the video is on hold currently, and i didn't wanted to leave this complex illustration to be of no use till then.
Therefore, i decided to release it as a free wallpaper for Desktops, Tablets and Phones. Download them here, yes its free!
The Mighty Lad is a gaming channel which offers a variety of video game "Lets Plays" and other such content from the latest games and even some classics here and there for nostalgia. Unfortunately the channel is inactive since a long time. He approached me to have a channel logo, cover/banner and an introduction video made.
I wanted to have an "almost" retro 8-bit look for The Mighty Lad as it's major theme was nostalgic gaming. "Almost" because it also had a clean flat design too. So the brand image finally came out as an hybrid of retro+modern design styles.
Zephyr-now known as anim8, is a motion-designer himself. He contacted me to create an intro to save some time i suppose, as he had just started his channel.
Zephyr initially didn't have any logo so for the intro to work, i had to create a new logo for him in Photoshop before creating the intro.
A few days later he also wanted an outro(An outro is like an ending placeholder for videos on YouTube where creators can place their most viewed videos, most recent videos or any other video according to their liking).
Both intro and outro are based on the Flat design style and are made purely in After Effects using it's in-built shapes and paths.
Starting their own tech business, TechBUD approached me to create an Intro for their tech YouTube channel.
The intro justified the brand philosophy as well as the brand name, as they wanted an intro that should portray the brand as the hub of all thing technology.
A quick sketch of a hatchback car i made while i was studying for my exams. Why a car? Because i like them. I am not a car enthusiast who knows every specs and stuff of every car but i do like to draw and look at them occasionally for no reason.
Once the sketch was finished, the grill mesh in the front looked kinda blank so i decided to brand it as a Mercedes Car. If Mercedes has this car already by any chance that's purely coincidental.
PS: Sorry for the potato quality image, i had a really old phone that time.
KCXplore is a college newspaper initiated and founded by Pradeep Singh. He wanted me to create a brand identity for the newspaper.
I started working by selecting a set of brand colors and finalizing the 2 colors that beautifully compliment each other and then selecting a font from a set of fonts for the wordmark and brand typography. For the logo, i wanted it to be quite different from traditional news brand which generally have a text in really old school but classic font as their logo, as it was a newspaper for college i wanted it to represent the newspaper as the voice of the students of the college, so the logotype looks like a news thoughtbox.
KCXplore also needed an infographic type video to be made so that it conveys the idea of the brand clearly.
What's with the robot narrator? Nothing... It's a robot. That's it.
OpticalF3AR pronounced as "OpticalFear", aka Optical is a gaming channel on YouTube. Kyle(owner of OpticalF3AR) contacted me to get an outro made for his channel.
The logo provided by the client had to be animated, once appended with the outro. To achieve the logo animation i separate the into fragments of logo elements that needed animation within After Effects itself.
The video holder, shapes and paths were all made with in-built After Effects shapes.
After i worked on intro videos for a really long series of gaming YouTube channels, i was approached by proYecTube-a news based YouTube channel, for his channel intro.
Made the logo in Photoshop by keeping the elements that needed to be animated in a separate layer, and then used those layers in After Effects with some additional shapes and paths in After Effects.
