    Behance is a good website to post work and get feedback.

  4. Great advice on learning design. A lot of people don’t have mentors available where they work but sites like behance can help with that. I think most people would be intimidated to ask a designer whose work they admire to critique something.

  5. Hi Nick, ‘been following you’re site since Motionographer made an article about the conference you gave on “How To Be a Motion Designer” (which btw was pretty wicked).

    Let me introduce myself in a few random-ordered words: british-born, french, freshly graduated from a two year course specialized in post-production (editing/after fx/photoshop…), and now employee in Paris as a “multimedia assistant” which basicly mean that a prepare flame/after fx/pablo neo/final cut pro artists’ work and help them on the technical side of the machines.

    Now… for my request: I’d love to have a sort of feedback on my reel from someone you and/or anybody on this website. (I’ll also post it on Behance ;) )

    You can check it out on http://c.merciersanders.free.fr
    (my site’s sort of under construction at the moment, haven’t got my computer, well actually haven’t got a home at the moment…)

    Thanks for taking the time!
    Keep it going.

  6. Major props for making the very important point that learning design isn’t like learning the software. I’m very careful not to ever refer to myself as a “web designer” because people immediately equate that with their friend’s kid who makes websites or something :-)

    I’d actually love to hear your thoughts on transitioning from print/web to motion design, which is sort of where I find myself now. Enjoyed the watch, keep it up!
