How to Create Amazing Style Frames for Motion Design

    In this tutorial, I show my simple working process for designing style frames from sketch to Adobe Illustrator & why they’re so important to the animation process. Creating a style frame before any animation begins is a key step in the motion design process because it can be much harder to change course later on. We use style frames to present the final look of animation to clients or teams so that everyone knows the specific visual direction.
