Ever seen a head-less chicken? It is grotesque and frankly, quite gruesome. Emotions apart, it is a situation which no one wants to be in. Your body is intact but with its most important part, i.e. the head, missing due to which you reach nowhere.

Something quite similar is the case with Animators who do not have a formal qualification! You may be the last word in your field, but when informed about your educational status, most studios treat you like a head-less chicken.

The world and its elder brother may give you all kinds of stories about experience being more important than knowledge. Don’t believe it entirely. Education is education and one does not go very far without it.

Education as a field is like nectar attracting all kinds of seekers. Not all though are genuine. In fact, a majority are the kinds who can be termed “fly-by-night”! Here is where a formal qualification from a recognized body comes in handy. You get education which has a pre-defined curriculum and is backed by a tested and approved methodology as also a certification regarding the teaching infrastructure.

Animation as a field is vast with implications just as vast and varied. To bridge the gap between what is needed and what is provided, government approved educational bodies in this country have started courses with standardized curriculum which gets changed at regular intervals to reflect the situation on the ground.

One such venture which seems to be catching-up fast is B.Sc Animation.

Animation as a career has always been looked upon as something to be learnt on the job with most people taking it up as a hobby. With the recent seriousness that it warrants, people are now looking at it as a full time career which needs to be entered into early in life.

Most B.Sc Animation courses are structured as follows

First year Mostly introductory in fields such as animation, foundation art, Fundamentals of graphics. Fields such as Concept Writing , Sketching , Story boarding are covered at an introductory stage.

Second year With the students already in the course for a year subjects like Audio Video Editing, 2-D Animation, Production Process, Multimedia, Composing, Web Designing Course are introduced with some depth.

Third year At this stage, it is expected of students to be into the grove and are taught about Clay Animation, 3D Animation, CGI Modeling , Lighting and Texturing and Motion Graphics, V.F.X.

Animation as a trade is all about using your imagination and using it wisely. Imagination happens when you keep your thoughts wide open. Using it wisely is when you practice your trade intensively till it becomes intuitive.

Most B.Sc. Animation courses make its student(s) practice each and every subject till it becomes second nature. All the subject mentioned above are backed by intensive practical carrying equal weight as compared to theory.

Web designing, as is known is a creative field where only skills or knowledge do not make one a great designer. It is a mix of quite a few inborn talents + some training + some attitudinal shifts that makes for a great designer. Training for web designing and an attitudinal shift are some things which our web designing course in Pune can bring about.
Read on….
We start with the inborn talents. These include Simplicity: Leonardo Da Vinci was the stuff of legend. His personal accomplishments were equal to that of half a dozen individuals put together! Yet, his designs and idea were put out in ways which everybody could understand! This goes to show the worth of making the final product simple. Complicate it and most people will stay away!

Clarity of thoughts: Too many objectives to be achieved in too little a space leads only to one thing. A MESS! An unclear website or one catering to unrelated needs can be irritating to a browser. Even if the objective is small, have clarify. People may like you just for that. In our Web Designing Course in Pune we stress our students to think think and think again before they plan their first stroke of Design

Ability to observe: Ever seen Leonardo’s Mona Lisa? She smiles. Or does she? This is the power of observation and the ability use it. After you have observed, what do you do? You decipher ie you derive something of value. For the latter to take place, one needs a well-developed sixth.

Research, research and some more research: Research on its own never killed anyone. On the contrary, it brought out certain facts which made things easier for all. Research who the audience is, what their preferences are and what they look for and design a website accordingly. One’s personal preferences, how-so-ever good, may not be of great help here.

image of web desiging courses in pune at VEDA

Ability to write: Research, experience, ideas etc. are mere words in the absence of the ability to write them down in an understandable manner. Writing can involve observations on who the audience is, what they want and how to go about it including a help guide.

Reflect the basic premise of your thoughts: Trying to sell a product or service while giving the feel of something else may irritate visitors which through social media network can generate un-necessary bad publicity.

Have a unique well-defined USP: Where the website proposes to deal with an already-saturated subject, what may help is a unique style statement in terms of appearance, browsing experience, services offered etc. A beautiful color scheme with correct graphics and collage all done-up to reflect something positive and re-assuring may do the trick.

Next, we take up the issue of knowledge acquired from external sources:
Knowledge of latest like HTML5: What we see on screen on any website is the dressed-up window which we admire for its color, content, layout, designs…….In this dressing-up, the tailor is an application called HTML5 which takes the raw data that the machine understand and puts it across in a different language that we humans understand. Akin to an interpreter who works seamlessly and tirelessly in the background, it is what makes our browsing experience what it is, good, bad or ugly!  Check out what we cover in our HTML section of web designing course.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO): You make a website for the world to accesses and try-out your services. It is, at a certain level a carefully done-up window of a shop where people come, see the product and if it suits them, go into the shop and purchase it. What if no one came to your window despite its being very creative, innovative and informative? It would be a sheer waste of time, money and efforts. Here is where the concept of a “Search Engine” comes in.

image of internet digital marketing courses in pune at VEDA

Google, the most prolific of search engines has continually changing complex algorithms which it employs to rank a site and give it visibility. To be present on its cross-hairs all the time, the website has to continuously innovate and understand what it takes to be at the top. This innovation and staying ahead is termed “Search Engine Optimization”. It demands patience, knowledge and most of all, being innovative.  Our special Digital marketing course trains students on the latest updated SEO concepts.

Theoretical knowledge of graphics: You should be clear about what you want to show on the website. That said, how it should appear is also as important. Web designing course in Pune now see to it that their students in addition to being web designers also have knowledge of elements of graphic designing. Keeping this in mind we have framed our Graphic designing course with a good combination of theory ( Fundamental) knowledge.

Social media……and the art of marketing! Our life, wherever we are and whatever we do is slowly and inextricably getting sucked into the vortex called Social Media. If an organization or entity (very much including individuals!) is not on it, you might as well call them Neanderthals! People go online and discuss everything these days ranging from politics, FMCG, innovation and lot more…….if you don’t want to be left out, jump into the sea of social media and learn to navigate on your own!
Innovate, implement and Enjoy!

typography
Spread the love

Graphic Designing as a field is the representation of a written idea or simply an idea using letters, visuals (both pictures and illustrations) and space which could be a sheet of paper, a wall or even a computer screen.

What sets it apart from plain writing is the liberal usage of visuals.

Probably the first and most telling graphic designs were made by painter, inventor, scientist and philosopher Leornado Da Vinci. He even designed an army formation resembling a tank complete with typography which could be understood by most along with illustrations!

Coming to the idea of typography in graphic designers, it means setting the letters in such a form so as to be understood by all in the correct context. They include usage of the correct font, its size, color, spacing, layout, grid and other similar characteristics which aid in making the overall presentation on an idea as correct as possible. Typography can make the difference between a good, bad and great graphic design.

With the advent of computers, things are a lot easier. Choosing between fonts, their sizes, colors etc are a lot easier now. Even fitting the whole thing into a central theme is not as tedious as before when a graphic designer has to consider each and every aspect separately which could at times be opposing ideas!

The best example coming to mind of a graphic design replete with typography are advertisements with a logo, artwork, text and elements of design which in composition, bring out an idea.

Pune, with its liberal spread of graphic designing courses and graphic designing colleges seem to have their hands full with work increasing tremendously and which is expected to stay so for some time.

Common uses of graphic design include logos and brand building), printing and publication of newspapers, books and magazines and advertisements, posters, billboards, website graphics and elements, signs and product packaging.

There was a time when everything to do with advertising, graphic designing and brand building found its way to Mumbai. Not anymore. Graphic design courses in Pune too have come of age with the latest in terms of talent and hardware being available locally. This is seeing to it that work now gets done here itself which saves a lot of time, money and hassles and in addition guarantees employment to the locals.

So, the next time you need to get any graphics designed, you very well know where to go!

Walt Disney, ILS and Pixar. Oft heard names in the field of animation and with good reasons too. All these are ultimately foreign organizations.

And in India? Well, things are not as bleak as you may think. In fact it is pretty good given our talent and the price advantage we offer!

Mentioned below are some names which have done us proud in the world of animation and VFX. These by no means are the only ones. The field being such, there is always room for newer players which we hope comes in fair numbers to increase our output and employment

  1. Pentamedia Graphics

With a staff strength close to 2000 at a time not far back, Pentamedia Graphics is well represented the world over with offices located in Singapore and in Manila. Its Indian operations take place from Chennai from where they do stuff in the field of post production, 2D and 3D Animation, VFX and such movie making services. If you have seen the Academy Awards nominated Gulliver’s travels and Pandavas, you would very well know what is being spoken about. Their motion-capture activity in the movie “Sindbadh” simply takes the cake!

  1. Toonz Animation India

Thiruvananthapuram in Kerela is famous for its beaches, gold (INR 10 lac crores at last count) and…..Toonz Animation; so famous that the Capital of Kerala is now synonymous with toonz worldwide!

And not without reasons! With a staff strength in excess of 500 artists under its employment, it works for names like Disney, Hallmark and Paramount Studios quite regularly. Due to its work, its volumes and clientele, it has a standing of repute in South Asia as a Toonz Specialist.

In India, two of its products, “The return of Hanuman” and “Adventures of Tenali Raman” have brought it accolades. They handle both 2D and 3D movies solo or in conjunction with normal movies. Last heard, orders from all corners of the world are raining down on them!

  1. Heart Entertainment

The south of India does seems to be upping the ante as far as animation and special effects go. Our next contender on this list is a Hyderabad-based organization which goes by the name, Heart Entertainment. Animation. VFX being big business which is anything but everybody’s cup of tea, they sure had their heart in place to have taken up the herculean task of producing a 90 minutes cartoon strip aptly called “The Hercules”.

Heart Entertainment does have more than its heart in place. They have started a parallel training organization called Heart Animation Academy and do a lot of work for animation and film studios in the west as was the case with Warner Brothers’ “Hysteria”

  1. UTV Toonz

UTV doesn’t require an introduction in the world of entertainment. This Mumbai based entertainment behemoth is quite agile despite its size almost akin to the cartoon characters it hosts through its subsidiary UTV Toonz the latter coming into being in year 2000. Like its parent movie company, UTV Toonz has made its presence felt all across the world especially in the mature markets of North America and Europe. In the former, it has recently bagged a USD 10 billion order. Their hands are full with orders it seems. In the US, they have Kong: The Next Generation and in Canada, they work for Cinegroup’s Clootie and Dunpling. Even places like Luxembourg is registering their presence with a feature called “Snow Queen”!

They do seem to be going places with some very, very good work.

  1. Maya Entertainment

Mumbai has always had its fair share of cartoons and it seems to have led to a deluge of companies here which product world-class animated stuff. Maya Nagari, as it is also called, does have an Animator by the name, Maya Entertainment which is doing wonders in the world of Animation. Founded in the year 1996, it has been growing by leaps and bounds in terms of work. In addition to animation work, it also has training centers in the Middle East and Asia. Employing close to 500 people, it works for Giants like Sony, Google and Rainbow with an annual billing close to USD 1 billion!

Its body of work include animation for movies like “The Mummy” and “Stuart Little” besides a very special character called “Wabo” developed for the United Nation’s water conservation efforts which helps educates its viewers worldwide on the importance of potable water and its conservation.

This by no means is an exhaustive list and we shall from time to time tell you about organizations in India which produce world-class stuff at our kind of prices!

Watch this space for more..…..
