Refuge In Grief

Create an intro for my client’s YouTube Series

This client has an interesting job - psychotherapist, writer, grief advocate, & communication expert dedicated to helping people live through things they never thought they’d face. She has a YouTube series where she talks about the hard things in life, the stuff people avoid but actually do need to be addressed.

For this YouTube series, she wanted an intro for her videos that was lighthearted and soothing, but no rainbows and butterflies. She also wanted it to have a handmade look to it.

With that direction, I hand drew all the elements. Then, I brought them into After Effects and had a blast creating a faux stop-motion effect. The client was in love with the end result and so am I!
