Motion Plus Design Rotterdam

Last Saturday, Rotterdam's Kino Cinema buzzed with the energy of motion design at the sold-out second edition of Motion Plus Design. The event showcased the work of three Dutch designers: Jason van Domburg, Lieke Milder and Julius Horsthuis. I have never seen the fractal motion design that Horsthuis does, it is truly impressive.

A fascinating roundtable discussion on budgeting for motion design concluded the event. Valuable insights included:

 Pricing strategies: Lieke Milder suggested using day or hourly rates and adding buffer days for unexpected challenges.

 Client communication: It's important to manage client expectations and be transparent about price changes for new projects.

 Scope management: When working with fixed budgets, it is essential to stay within the agreed scope.

Increase your rate: If you want to increase your rate, increase it with each new project. If you have a repeat client, tell them that the next project will have the new rate.

Upcoming Motion Design events:
Tokyo - June 15
Paris - November 23
