3 ways to communicate your idea
1. Kinetic typography. The context of your message is just as important as the message. We can utilize the potential of motion graphics to capture the attention of the target audience. It can be used to inject action into an otherwise static video, in order to make the final video more appealing to the viewer.
2. Explanatory videos. When it comes to digital products or services (e.g., launching a new website or app), animated explanatory videos are a great way to explain the story. Presenting your digital idea through a motion graphics video can help you gain investors, or raise awareness amongst the target audience. Alternatively, you can use an explanatory video to present functionalities of your website in a cost-efficient, customer-friendly way.
3. 3D objects and pack shots. A well-crafted 3D product presentation can show the physical construction of your product. Using this technique, you can present and explain a perspective which would be almost impossible to visualize in real life, and that can help the viewer to understanding the complexity and usage of the product. The advantage of 3D motion graphics is that they are easily adjustable – with a few simple clicks you can change the location and the colour of the object, and create visual harmony.
