ANIMATION

Animation gives you endless possibilities for creating stories, and is a fantastic way to engage an audience. I’ve always loved animations and motion graphics since I was very young, and it’s one of the things I enjoy working with the most. For creating both animations and motion graphics I use Illustrator and After Effects.

BOOTSTRAP

For developing responsive websites Twitter Bootstrap is my go to framework. It makes sure the design looks good on any device, which is crucial, as we live in a world where we’ve got access to the internet at all times. In some situations Media Queries will be added in order to make the website fully responsive.

DESIGN

A design can make or break the user experience. Therefore a good design is one of the most important things when it comes to a website. To make sure the design is adequate, I always make wireframes and mock-ups for approval as well as testing. The wireframes and mock-ups are created with Photoshop or Illustrator.

FRONT-END

When the design is perfect, it’s time to make it a reality. I do this by coding the website with HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. To make sure the website is easy to find for search engines, SEO is also implemented. To make the website come to life I use Dreamweaver.

ILLUSTRATION

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, the same goes for illustrations. Illustrations can be used in all types of media to express everything from emotions to solutions. As with animations and motions graphics it gives you endless possibilities. For creating illustrations I use Illustrator.

VIDEO

Video is an amazing way to engage an audience. It’s important that the video is not too long so the audience won’t lose interest. Video is also a great way to capture people's attention on social media. When creating video I use Premiere Pro for editing and After Effects for post production.





About

My name is Malou Sloth. I’m a newly graduated Multimedia Design & Communication student with residents in Aalborg, Denmark. I’m a person full of ideas, and I’m always looking for new challenges. Since I’ve just finished my education, I’m unemployed and looking for a job.

I’m very passionate about my work and I love what I do. The great thing about being a Multimedia Designer is that there’s so many possibilities in regards of work. I personally prefer the creative work more, since that’s when I’m in my element. My ultimate dream job would be in the field of animation, since that’s been a dream of mine from a very young age. I also very much enjoy making illustrations and designing websites.
