Whole Person Assessment (WPA)-AGRD-Motion Design Portfolio


The goal of this project is to asses the stu­den­t’s per­for­mance and poten­tial in the graphic design field.


The objec­tive of this assign­ment is to pro­vide an assess­ment of the stu­den­t’s port­fo­lio and efforts as part of the Uni­ver­si­ty’s Whole Per­son Assess­ment Pro­gram using the WPA-AGRD-Motion Design Port­fo­lio rubric.

Background Reading


Using com­ments and sug­ges­tions for pre­vi­ous eval­u­a­tions and class­room cri­tiques, revise and turn in course assign­ments. This process should be done well before the final dead­line for the review. Often, the best time to revise a project is imme­di­ately after the review. Con­sider the craft nec­es­sary to main­tain a pro­fes­sional level of pro­duc­tion. Doc­u­ment your progress through brain­storm­ing, sketches and revi­sions, both phys­i­cal and digital.

Part One

Please sub­mit the fol­low­ing projects to your hosted web­site and to the appro­pri­ate D2L project drop­box for review:

First Semester

  • Assign­ment 02.06: Kinetic Typography
  • Assign­ment 02.06: Visual Narrative
  • Assign­ment 03.09: Kinetic Logos
  • Assign­ment 04.12: Net­work Hol­i­day Bumpers
  • Assign­ment 06.13: Motion Design Part Three

Semester Two

  • Assign­ment 01.01.02: Show Package
  • Assign­ment 03.12.02: Open­ing Title Sequence
  • Assign­ment 05.03.02: Ani­mated Homage Poster

Both Semesters

  • Process doc­u­men­ta­tion of a min­i­mum of one project ref­er­enced above (Pro­vide exam­ples, espe­cially sketches to proofs, to fin­ished project.)
  • Motion projects com­pleted out­side of course requirements

Make a post for each project on your port­fo­lio site. Doc­u­ment each project with a short descrip­tion of details regard­ing the project para­me­ters: date, size, media, project objec­tive etc. Screen­shot, cre­ate and crop project images to ensure that mul­ti­ple details and sub­tle aspects are pre­served. Some use of stag­ing tem­plates is accept­able, but they should not take the pri­or­ity of the analy­sis of your work.

Using the instruc­tions in class, upload the video files a host­ing ser­vice, such as YouTube or Vimeo, and then link to your web­site using the instruc­tions from either.

Part Two

Nav­i­gate to your site’s cat­e­gory or tag for the video based projects and take a screen shot. Upload the screen­shot to the appro­pri­ate D2L drop­box and cre­ate a click­able, direct link to the page in the com­ments section.

To take a screen-shot:

  • Com­mand-Shift-4-Space­bar: Takes a screen­shot of the win­dow, and saves it as a file on the desk­top. The file will have a .png extension.
  • Com­mand-Shift‑3: Takes a screen­shot of the entire screen, and saves it as a file on the desk­top. The file will have a .png extension.
  • Instead of using the key­board short­cuts above, screen­shots can be taken by using the Screen­shot appli­ca­tion included with Mac OS X. It is located at /Applications/Utilities/Screenshot or by search­ing via Spot­light in the upper right of the Mac screen.
