"A riveting collection of essays, providing the unique point of view of some of the most inspired members of our industry. Whether you are interested in the science or the practical aspects of this field, this book is certain to provide rare insight, education and inspiration."

-Alberto Scirocco, President / Creative Director, leftchannel

"R. Brian Stone and Leah Wahlin have produced the best book on designing for motion since Peter von Arx's classic Film Design. Their new book The Theory and Practice of Motion Design should be required reading for anyone concerned with how words and information move on screen and how movement contributes to meaning."

-Hugh Dubberly, Co-founder, Dubberly Design Office; Fellow AIGA SF; Member of the ACM SIGCHI Academy

"Instead of a `how-to' book, this is a `how-to-think-about' book that delivers on its title, combining the history and intellectual underpinnings of motion design with the insights of contemporary design professionals...a thoughtful response to the profession's shift from the mute flat-land of print to today's rich, multi-dimensional options for communications."

-Christopher Pullman, Senior Critic, Motion Design, Yale University School of Art; Former VP of Design and Visual Communications, WGBH, Public Broadcasting in Boston
