We were invited by Adobe to join a small group of selected artists to contribute to the next release of Creative Cloud. The aim of this commissioned project was to create an animation to showcase our creative skill with Adobe's creative tools. A still image from our animation would be used as the Splash Screen for the new version of After Effects. The work would also be used across Adobe's marketing channels to demonstrate product features and inspire others to create something amazing.

We created a short, expressive animation that celebrates the art of motion and shows off the features of After Effects. This piece is bright, positive, colorful, and punchy, revealing and celebrating the beauty of motion design and inspiring users to explore After Effects. The still image for the After Effects Splash Screen represents the work as a whole, implying motion, and telling a story about this powerful creative tool in Adobe's product arsenal.
