Motion Graphic: My Career Path

I’m working on expanding my portfolio, so I put together this motion graphic as an example of my talents. I created the pictures of “me” and my various work attire using Inkscape. I was really impressed with how much I’ve picked up on editing vector images. The brunt of the work, including animation was done in PowerPoint. I realize that PowerPoint isn’t the ideal tool for creating high quality motion graphics, but it’s the tool I currently know how to use. I hope that it demonstrates that I understand some fundamental aspects of creating animated graphics, and that I have a good eye for layout and design.

It’s a two-for-one win as far as my portfolio goes because it shows an example of a motion graphic I created and it explains about my background and interests. Here it is:
