During the recent Rookie Awards 2019 the judging panel had the pleasure of reviewing some incredible entries from aspiring motion graphis artists.

Often called Motion graphics designers, sometimes just called motion designers, they create artwork for the web, television or film. This includes movie clips, trailers, commercials and title sequences. They use visual effects, animation and other cinematic techniques to bring life to their creations. Put simply, they design graphics that are in motion.

The following motion designers really impressed the judges and made a great impression with the other members of The Rookies, so go check out their mad skills and keep an eye on them because they are surely going to have impressive careers.
