Anyone who’s known me over the past few years knows that I’ve been doing quite a bit of work with Visually. Visually, for anyone that doesn’t know, started out as a platform for displaying infographics and data visualizations, and quickly expanded to become a premiere all-in-one cloud production service.
After being one of the first animators picked up to work on their marketplace, I actually started my current stint as the part-time creative director for video, where I critique work, offer support to our administrators, and manage incoming and outgoing animators. I also do quite a bit of writing for the Visually blog, so a lot of my newer writing can be found there.
Also of note, the blog has moved! This is the inaugural post of the new Animation Caffeinated; now conveniently located at nickvaka.com. After discussing it with my hetero-life-mate, I decided it would be best to move the blog to back home to keep everything together. Saves sending people to 2 different sites, and keeps the traffic from getting broken up.
Beyond my Visually work, I’ve been doing a lot of other fun stuff that I’m going to try and post about in the coming weeks. Of note is a multi-part feature that I’m going to be posting both here, and on Visually’s blog simultaneously, so keep your eyes peeled for that! Also going to break down a few newer pieces and try to get the new reel together for 2015.
It’s been a tremendous year, Internet! I can’t wait to get started on the next one.
