Bogdan Dumitriu: Motion Designer
Today, I’m featuring Bogdan Dumitriu, a motion designer who I recently discovered on Instagram. The storytelling techniques he uses in his case studies and project descriptions are really effective, so I’m thrilled to be able to share them.
One of the things I love about Bogdan’s site is his balance of showing and telling. He mixes short, interesting chunks of text with lots of images and subtle animations throughout his projects. It’s a really nice effect that draws the reader in and makes them want to keep exploring.
He also includes a lot of details that are important for his audience but aren’t obvious, like why he makes the choices he does. He also talks about the challenges he faces and how he overcomes them. It’s great to answer any questions you think your audience might have about your work by sharing these aspects of your process.
Finally, the language he uses in his headings and in the descriptions themselves really have a great storytelling feel. Often case studies and project descriptions feel kind of boring because they’re just a list of steps. Bogdan’s projects are actually interesting and fun to read because they use conversational language, engage our curiosity, and help us to understand his process more deeply. He doesn’t waste our time talking about things we can see for ourselves.
Good storytelling is difficult. I hear that all the time from the creatives I chat with in workshops and private sessions. That’s why I designed my Portfolio Writing Workbook. If you’re struggling with your project stories, it can help you engage your audience and explain your work in a clear, concise, and captivating way .
