Marketing Animations

Learn about marketing animations and its applications.

WHAT ARE MARKETING ANIMATIONS

Marketing animations are short videos created to promote a product, service, or brand. They are an effective marketing tool as they communicate information quickly and creatively. These animations can be used in various marketing channels such as social media, websites, and email campaigns. They can range from simple animated graphics to more complex explainer videos that provide detailed information about the product/service. Marketing animations are an excellent way to engage and educate potential customers, increase brand awareness, and drive sales.

WHO USES MARKETING ANIMATIONS?

Retailers use marketing animations for online advertisements, in-store displays, and social media promotions to showcase products dynamically and attractively, highlighting features and uses.

Car manufacturers and dealerships often employ animations to introduce new vehicle features, demonstrate technology advancements, and visualise engineering concepts that are difficult to display through static images alone.

Tech companies use animations to explain complex technologies, such as software applications, hardware devices, or new technological concepts, making them more accessible to non-technical audiences.

These sectors use animations to demonstrate how medications work within the human body, explain medical procedures, or illustrate the benefits of medical equipment, providing clear and engaging patient education.

Marketing animations are used to give potential buyers and investors virtual tours of properties, architectural visualisations, and realistic depictions of proposed developments before they are built.

These organisations leverage animations for educational purposes, creating engaging content that can explain complex subjects in a straightforward and memorable way.

WHERE ARE MARKETING ANIMATIONS USED?

SOCIAL MEDIA

On social media, animations are used to capture attention quickly, making them ideal for engaging users who scroll through their feeds. These can be short explainer videos, animated infographics, or branded GIFs that convey messages succinctly and entertainingly, significantly boosting engagement and sharing potential.

WEBSITES

Animations on websites enhance user experience by breaking up text, illustrating complex services, or guiding users through marketing animations. They can be integrated into homepage banners or used as interactive elements that activate when scrolled over, helping to maintain user interest and encourage longer site visits.

DIGITAL MARKETING

In digital advertising, animations are used to stand out in a crowded advertising space, such as banners, pop-ups, and video ads. They are more likely to catch the eye than static ads and can convey a message or evoke emotion quickly, leading to higher click-through rates and improved ad recall.

TRADE SHOW & EVENTS

At trade shows and events, animations are used in presentations, on digital displays, or within interactive kiosks to draw attendees to stands and deliver engaging product demonstrations or company overviews. They can effectively communicate the value and features of products or services in a dynamic way that captures and retains audience attention in busy event environments.

HOW ARE MARKETING ANIMATIONS CREATED?

Concept and Planning

This initial stage involves brainstorming ideas and finalising the concept behind the animation. It includes developing a storyline or message, scripting the dialogue or narration, and outlining the visual elements. This phase sets the foundation for the animation, detailing what it will communicate and how it will appeal to the target audience.

STEP 01

3D Modelling and Texturing

Once the concept and script are set, the next step is to create the 3D models that will be used in the animation. This involves using 3D modelling software to build each character, prop, and environment. After modeling, texturing is applied, which involves adding colours, patterns, and materials to the models, giving them a more realistic appearance.

STEP 02

Animation

Keyframes are set to define the movements of elements and objects from one point to another, ensuring they flow smoothly. This stage also includes adding visual effects, lighting, and camera movements to enhance the visual storytelling.

STEP 03

Rendering and Post-Production

The final step involves rendering, where the animated scenes are processed to produce the final output. This can be a time-consuming process as it involves computing light simulations, textures, and effects to achieve a high-quality finish. After rendering, compositing takes place where all elements are layered together, and final touches are added, such as sound effects, music, and voice-overs, resulting in the completed 3D animation ready for distribution.

Firstly, to begin a project, clients provide all the information required. For product visualisations, we require things such as drawings, design specifications, sketches, mood boards or other type of information you may have.

To clarify, we will check all of the content the clients have provided and ask for more details if necessary. In addition, a meeting, phone call or Teams call is always beneficial. To sum up, this helps avoid any misconception and allows us to shorten turnaround times for 3D animation services.

We start working as soon as we understand all of the details the task requires, and time frames have been agreed by both parties. Our 3D artists keep in constant contact with the clients throughout this process, with regular updates.

After that, we present animated grey previews to you for comments and review and finally make the adjustments.

The client accepts the drafts for final rendering.

Finally, we present the 3D animation, after we have completed post-production in high resolution with full quality lighting, reflections, glossiness, and materials.
