Motion graphics are today an integral part of good video production. Animation typically falls under this, but motion graphics are really a combination of animation and graphic design. They're also typically combined with audio with the complementary goal of presenting data and information to the audience.
Our corporate and trade show videos almost always incorporate motion graphics. Most of the data used for this comes from our clients via the planning and scripting phase. Above is a video showcasing the motion graphics that we created for Coca-Cola, Kroger Personal Finance, Miller Zell, Citizens Bank, and Mini Cooper. And to the right is an example of a whiteboard video presentation.
