Genius Plaza uses technology to provide quality education around the globe.

Their mission is to create a platform that helps provide students, parents, and teachers with the tools to create the best possible learning experience, especially for those in underserved communities.

I served as part of their visual design team in order to help advertise the company's mission and create visuals for learning materials.

Visual Design Work

The majority of my time at Genius Plaza was spent doing visual design work. This included illustrations and graphic design products to appeal to teachers, parents, and students from grades K-12.

 

Social Media Illustrations

E-book Co-creation Assets

One of Genius Plaza's goals is to help children learn through creating experiences themself. On the website, students have the opportunity to create e-books with visuals from a bank of pre-made illustrations.

The last week and a half of my time at Genius Plaza was spent with the Animation team learning how to create simple character animations. I was taught how to use the puppet tool, speed graph, and other helpful motion graphics tools in Adobe After Effects.
