Poster Animations

The Project

Collaborating with the festival’s lead designer, Lissette Lopez, to create an animated version of the official Funka Fest 2019 poster. The poster was very beautifully designed with great use of texture so it was very exciting to take this piece to the next level and breathe life into all the individual elements.


Social Marketing

The animated poster was to be formatted best suited for Instagram stories, vertical 16:9 (1080×1920) resolution. The animated elements I created were then used for further campaign posts on social media.
