hexagonal ident – in motion

Foraying back into animating in AfterEffects is easier than I imagined, compared to the unexpected pain of installing and wrangling the sparkly new (and slightly buggy) Digital Publishing Suite in InDesign CS5.5…

Working on some drafts of how the ident might look on the initial screen for the book/app, before you transition to the menu or main text.

This is the unembellished version – still tweaking layers and timing to get it expanding smoothly. Thoughts?

This is a thought of how it might overlay on one of the images I’m using in the main body of the book/app.

More to do. Need to do some more work with gradual and partially animated transitions for the main screens, and I plan to do another 2 today and more than 3 tomorrow.
