Social Media Videos

Social media motion graphics are videos and animations that are specifically designed for social media platforms. From Instagram and Facebook to tiktok and LinkedIn, they can be re-purposed across each platform to spread your reach. They can be organic posts or paid ads, each with a different objective that leads the design process. social media videos both grab and retain users attention whilst engaging viewers in a whole new way.

Creating Quality Social Media Animations

Creating good social media content is the difference between growing your audience or being left in the dust. Your visuals need to grab and hold attention whilst engaging your audience in your desired way to make sure the business goals are being hit. They need to reflect your brands personality and values and be mindful of the content it surrounds based on the platform. Each platform has it's own rules and a unique way that users engage with content and the type of content they expect, and want, to see.

Benefits Of Using Video For Social Media

Social media for businesses is blowing up. Having a large audience online does wonders for your business so keeping active on social media is important. It allows you to show a more personal side of your business and showcase your brand values whilst keeping your brand at the front of people's mind.

Strategy
& Planning

The first phase is always to understand the goal and then create a solid plan. It's important to write down and confirm the distribution, business and project objectives, audience and emotion. This gives us the foundation for creating your perfect video. The visual part of the plan can take many forms depending on the project but normally includes a moodboard or styleframes to quickly work through different styles we think might work and storyboard which shows the flow and structure of the video.

Illustration
& Design

Next we move onto creating styleframes to show the art direction for the project and create any assets required for the final animation. Styleframes are frames from the storyboard that I design in the style of the final animation based on our moodboards. This gives us an accurate representation to edit and tweak until we are happy to move on to the next stage. Once we have confirmed the styleframes I can start creating any assets required for the rest of the project such as typography, graphics and illustrations.

Animation
& Audio

The final stage is to bring the project to life through movement and audio. I use different animation techniques such as classic tweening and frame by frame alongside motion principles to create smooth animation that flows and reflects the mood of the styleframes. It's important to create movement that enhances the message of the project rather than distracts from it. I add and mix any audio including voiceovers, background music and sound effects before finally exporting the animation ready for the desired distribution platform.
