Motion Design Professional

Designed and delivered with top studios, agencies and brands, this course will turn your passion into a profession. Even if you’re new to motion design.

So called Professional as you’ll get to grips with four industry briefs whilst being shown industry methodologies to tackle them. Not only that, you’ll be assigned your own pro motion designer for 1-2-1 sessions and a performance coach to help you smash your goals.

This isn’t just about learning motion design. This is about understanding what it takes to make it your career.



Really enjoyed the Motion Design Professional course and gained so much! Whether it was gaining insight from my industry mentor, upskilling in After Effects and C4D skills, to getting to know myself better in the coaching sessions. It was an invaluable experience.

  • What level do I need to be?

    If you’ve never touched After Effects or Cinema 4D, you can do this course. You just need to be comfortable using Adobe PhotoShop, InDesign and Illustrator.

    Or you’re self-taught in After Effects or Cinema 4D. You wouldn’t call yourself an expert, but you ain’t too shabby. You lack the professionalism and have picked up bad habits and “don’t know, what you don’t know”. This course is perfect for you too.

  • What will I need?

    You’ll need the following software:

    • Adobe After Effects
    • Adobe InDesign
    • Adobe PhotoShop
    • Adobe Illustrator

    As a student of Motion Design Professional, we’ll provide your Cinema 4D license during the course!

    Any hardware which runs these applications is fine by us.
