Motion design is a form of art that has brought “movement” to expressions. The techniques of motion design have helped to spread vehicle control systems, map applications, communications technologies and SNS, supporting our stress-free, convenient daily lives. They also enable dynamic depictions in products, graphics and video images, creating even richer expressions that appeal to our sensibilities.

Today’s creators manufacture products utilizing cutting-edge technologies while employing engineering techniques as well. Various moving tools that are indispensable to our lives, as well as their mechanisms, have come about from a series of research and experiments carried out by designers, artists and corporations.
