Zuma J. Attah

Vice President & Senior Graphic Designer

Zuma is forever learning...

Little thing I slapped together in Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere featuring a project I made for a Publication Design class. The goal was to redesign the covers and leaves of a book series of our choice. I read this series of books in elementary school all the way through and it really impacted who I am as a person.
Potential animated logo for a brand/design firm I plan on growing in the future if things happen to line up. Looped 4 times for multiple viewing on one playthru. Appropriate sound and audio credits coming soon.
DODGEBALL! starring Chessa the Squirrel A quick animation I put together using Photoshop, Illustrator, and online tools. I've been developing this character for a while and I'm trying to work a Looney Tunes vibe for her personality with a little bit of Buttercup and Blossom from PPG.
Take Flight - A short animation by me, Megan, Melanie, and Cruz Our first attempt at creating animation in Adobe After Effects. We learned a lot and we still have areas to improve on, but overall I think we knocked it out of the park considering we all had absolutely zero experience in Adobe After Effects!
Webmastering 2005-06 This was the first full length animation I ever did... 10 years ago...11th grade... when Macromedia was still a thing. Anyway, thanks to technology I finally figured out a way to get it from .SWF into a video format compatible with Youtube.
