“WE DO EVERYTHING THAT MOVES”
eMotionLAB LTD. is a design-driven innovative motion design studio. Established in 2012, as a startup and now eMotionLAB is at the forefront of providing professional motion design services to a wide range of clients.
eMotionLAB aims to introduce moving branding to the market, which integrates motion designs into the branding process, ultimately creating coherent moving images for different brands. In this digital era, most information consumed is screen-based due to the accessibility and mobility of technology, and the traditional way of marketing is not enough to arouse awareness. A dynamic image will definitely help corporates and brands to stand out among keen competition. Concisely, eMotionLAB’s goal is to keep the pace of creativity and marketing with the changing world.
Motion Design is the universal language of the present era, where the use of smart devices – 24/7 portals to a global audience – has become unstoppable. Well-versed motion designers create visual stories touching hearts regardless of language and cultural barriers.
Motions give new meanings to brands and corporations that matter to our world now. Facebook videos have an organic reach that is 135% more than sheer images, while Cisco predicted that 80% of all internet traffic will be in video format by 2020 (Source: Fourth Source). The power and value of motion design is, however, undermined in Hong Kong, thus there are bountiful opportunities for local talents to tap into this emerging professional field.
Motion designers are multifaceted people who are left- and right-brain thinkers equipped with interdisciplinary design skills, from graphic design to cinematography, animation and time-based storytelling, with even a good understanding of physics and programming.
Feel the Motion aims to equip and accelerate the growth of art and design talents striving to start a professional journey in this exciting field, which is bound to become one of the most decisive trends and sought-after capacities in changing the future game.
"The design industry is changing at the speed of light. It is essential for emerging and practising professionals alike to equip themselves with such critical future skill of motion design to catch up with the latest technologies and application.
Feel the Motion is the tinder to cultivate a future-proof skill set for an evolving industry.”
Prof. Eric C. Yim
Hong Kong Design Centre
"Motion Design is the art of giving life to graphic design. Centuries of static beauties will now jump into the limitless world of moving frames. How does the industry embrace such a vivid and infinite playground? Artists are showing us the way. And now, Feel the Motion will be part of it."
