12 October 2020 - Some of my content here are disappearing as I am migrating them into my private Notion database for easier curation. Not to worry, everything related to Motion Design will remain here.
A site dedicated to curating knowledge pertaining to Motion Design: a discipline that fuses graphic design, animation, film-making and everything I know to help you lead better lives! I have too many thoughts these days; and I love writing. This is where I channel all my ideas, best practices or theories about life I neologized. I wouldn't call this a blog but rather a virtual copy of my brain; a place where I can evaluate my thoughts, built upon them, and crystallize them into valuable knowledge.
This site is run by Desmond Du It Better
Why the hell not?? Sharing is caring. Here at NoSleepCreative, we share and mapped out curated knowledge in accessible online format that students and professionals can used alike in the Motion Design and art industry.
Matt and his cgwiki database explains it the best:
Rather than keep it in a paper notebook I've stored it online in a wiki, which you're looking at now., it's a little disorganised and messy, you'll find things scribbled in the margins, sketches of ideas, shopping lists etc.It's not a manual, it's not official software documentation, quality varies depending on my stress levels at the time of writing. Hopefully most of it is interesting and/or useful.
In short, it is my peers and my manifesto to approaching to art and design.
Knowledge bubbles > Database model — We do not know what we know and do not know
Help us better identify and evaluate what we all know and don’t know
Ultimately, increasing 'operational agility'
Re-use and update for training new hires / freelancers / understudies / people stepping into a higher position
Curate best practices
for communicating within teams & managers
file naming conventions
workflow for different types of projects
for software usage eg. C4D, Resolve, Houdini
Things project managers want the design team to know (vice versa)
