Rezaliando's Profile & Portfolio


3D Designer

Hi, I'm Rezaliando from Indonesia and
I am a Malaysia-based 3D designer & artist.
I am one of the design directors and co-founders
of Machineast, a creative studio based in Malaysia
that focuses on creating highly aesthetic 3D key visual,
graphic design, and motion graphics.

I started my journey in the design industry in 2007,
and have been working with several design studios
in Malaysia & Singapore.

I have collaborated with global creative agencies,
art museums, and leading brands such as Nike, IBM, Apple,
Samsung, Ubisoft, Sephora, and Uniqlo just to name a few.

Aside from working at my studio,
I have been teaching students the fundamentals of design
and have also been sharing tips & insights
for working in the design industry.
Over the past years, I have been invited to
some international design conferences as well.

In this course, I will be sharing my design process
and you will be able to learn how to create
compelling 3D designs and have fun designing
3D typography & visual composition for digital art.

Is There a Specific Reason Why You Chose This Specific Topic/Themes?

I believe a good design must communicate well. One of the best ways to communicate in design is through typography. Choosing the right type for the right design is often neglected. I hope with this course you will aware of the importance of type design and how to play with typography design effectively.

What Makes Your Class Different From Other Classes?

Typography is one of the most important assets in design. Not only does it serve as a way to communicate the message to the viewer, but it also serves as a main/hero asset for the overall composition. The focus of this course is compositing typography design with animation. Something that would appeal to any designers who work with design agencies or designers who just want to explore compositing with typography.

Please Share Your Thoughts on the Job Market of the Industry

In terms of accessibility, the internet now has everything that you need to do almost anything and everything. This is not just for learning, but also for work. You are now given the option to work remotely and enjoy work at the comfort of your home. And this gives artists so much flexibility to learn on their own and work with clients remotely. I could see a rising supply & demand in remote design jobs worldwide. No matter where you are, you will be sought after and appreciated as long you have a good internet connection.

Please Share Anything You Would Like to Add to Your Students.

Stay motivated and surround yourself with creative people. Get inspired by new things and design techniques. I've gone through my "10,000 hours" of work experience by working and collaborating with different people from design agencies, directors, and designers from different studios. By doing so, I wanted to find my own style, and strengths, and learn as many techniques as I could from my seniors so I could best prepare myself to work in the industry. After many years of learning, I got the chance to get together with my partner in 2016, and we now run our very own design studio and call ourselves, Machineast.
