Animation in Brand Videos

Animation in brand videos is a sure fire way of revitalising your marketing mix, and in 2024, it’s more pertinent than ever. Here’s how animation can be a game-changer for brand videos this year.

1. Telling Your Brand Story ๐Ÿ“–

Visual Storytelling ๐ŸŽจ: Animation brings your brand story to life in ways that live-action sometimes can’t. It breaks the boundaries of reality, allowing for creative, engaging, and often whimsical storytelling that sticks in viewers’ minds. Check out how we created an entirely animated brand video to explain the core value proposition of Viewerโ€™s Logic.

Emotional Connection ๐Ÿ’–: Animated characters and scenarios evoke emotions effectively; humanising your brand and connecting personally with your audience. Our animation for the Kidney Cancer Association is an example of how both visual storytelling and emotional resonance are a perfect match for impactful brand videos.

2. Simplifying Complex Concepts ๐Ÿง 

Educational and Explainer Videos ๐Ÿ“š: Animation really comes into its own when simplifying complex products, services, or concepts. It’s perfect for creating explainer videos that are both informative and entertaining. Take a peek at our video for Blue Yonder for inspiration.

Dataย Visualisationย ๐Ÿ“ˆ: Presenting data or statistics? Animation can make these more digestible and engaging. Check out the way we turned data visualisation into a branded infographic animation for Colt.
