Film Friday: The Colorful Work of Freelance Designer & Animator J-Scott

What do you get when you combine colorful illustration with stylish shape motion? You get the unique work of freelance designer and animator Jordan “J-Scott” Scott. Be sure to checkout his reel which demonstrates an expertise in both animation and illustration. The colorful, 2-D retro illustrations in combination with the playful, modern shape motion style, gives all his work a youthful vibe that has a great synergistic quality. His work showcases the power of digital media and how much life it could add to existing graphic design and illustration work.

Washington State Lottery

Check out these two amazing videos Jordan worked on for the Washington State Lottery.

“I had the incredible pleasure of working with the dudes over at The Academy to help bring to life a series of 4 different spots for Washington State Lottery . In this multi-part campaign we explored what it meant to be a Winningaire, Millionaire, Thousandaire, Hundredaire & Dollaraire. Between being able to animate the search for your own personal submarine captain, to the convenience of owning your own sudsy carwash, we had a lot of fun doing it. Although, we’re still searching for those winning number combos we were promised.”

Logo Animation – Autism Internet Modules

Here, Jordan uses a logo that has already been designed. With digital media, he adds a whole new life to the design that previously never existed.

“The Autism Internet Modules were developed with one aim in mind: to make comprehensive, up-to-date, and usable information on autism accessible and applicable to educators, other professionals, and families who support individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). I was contacted by the Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI) about creating an identity animation for AIM using their already existing logo that would be used in front of all their online video content. I donated my time to design an animation that was simple, yet playful and had personality.”
