Hello! I’m Andrew Banta, multimedia/web designer and animator. I graduated from Purdue University in May 2010 with a B.S. in Computer Graphics Technology and a minor in Organizational Leadership and Supervision. I followed that up by studying Character Animation at Animation Mentor, earning a Certificate in Advanced Studies in Character Animation. I have a wide range of experience in communications, print and digital design, web development and design, character animation and motion graphics, as well as marketing and social media.
An assortment of computer generated images I have made, ranging from raster to vector images, including illustrations, photo manipulations, print designs, and more.
The sites below represent some of the recent work I have completed in the Agricultural Communication Department at Purdue University, for clients both internal and external.
