The Mountwest Community and Technical College Multimedia Design Program will teach you how to bring your creativity to life!
Motion design is the art of bringing graphic design to life through animation. Your only limit is your imagination!
Animation is a key part of Motion Design, but having unpleasant visuals can ruin your composition. We try to focus on design just as much as the animation. Thank you to the wonderfully talented studio Coat of Arms for the style frames! coatofarmspost.com

Employment of multimedia artists and animators is projected to grow 4 percent from 2018 to 2028, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Projected growth will be due to increased demand for animation and visual effects in video games, movies, and television.
Most multimedia artists and animators need a bachelor’s degree in computer graphics, art, or a related field to develop both an impressive portfolio of work and the strong technical skills that many employers prefer.
