Tell Your Story through Motion Graphics

As the name implies, motion graphics are pieces of graphics that move, incorporating the elements of time to add a whole new dimension to the graphics. Motion graphic design is an effective way to convey information in today’s society. It visualises concepts, stories, numbers that are difficult to comprehend in order to make them easier to understand.

Motion graphics are used to explain facts, demonstrate brand concept, tell brand stories, or used as an opening preamble, or simply for making the overall visual more interesting. It is a discipline that applies graphic design principles to video making through use of different special visual effects, animations, illustrations, 2D/3D design. The versatility of motion graphics has brought itself lots of love from a number of brands, who have an eye towards drawing public’s attention to their products or services.

Insurance could be a boring topic to customers, but it is not anymore with motion graphics, which turn boring and hard to digest information into visual elements for a better result.

Doodles are raw but real. They help create a friendly image for brands. The animated doodles in the Facebook ad are nothing like any well-polished visual elements out there, but they are more lovable and pleasing to watch. The doodles embellishing the Facebook Live Videos allow more flexibility and possibilities in video making. They not only look attractive without causing too much of a burden to the eyes, but also serve as a complement to the message behind.


Visualise Numbers
