Motion Graphics Types

  • 2D Motion Graphics

    You see Motion Graphics all the time – on TV and YouTube and a million websites – because they help communicate complex messages in an easy-to-understand and visually engaging way. By adding motion to your words, photos, and/or illustrations, you bring another dimension to your presentation, which enhances your story and amplifies your message.

  • 3D Motion Graphics

    This style of Motion Graphics offers a more premium and impactful look. With added realism and a more immersive feel, your audience will be sure to be impressed and see your brand as a leader in it’s field. The cost is substantially more than 2D Motion Graphics but we feel like it’s worth the investment if you have the marketing budget available.

  • Motion Graphics + Characters

    Motion Graphics and Character Animation come together in wondrous delight! What a match made in heaven this style is. In fact, we apply this approach to the majority of our motion graphics productions as clients love it and so do we! We can also mix 2D motion graphics with 3D motion graphics. Really, there’s no limitations. Only our imagination.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Motion Graphics?

Motion graphics is a style of animation that combines graphic design with animation to create visually engaging videos. It is often used to create ads, title sequences for movies, explainer videos, and to share information. They are typically shorter pieces of animation that entertain or impart information.

In simpler terms, motion graphics is animated graphic design. It is the process of adding motion to graphic elements, such as text, shapes, and illustrations, to create dynamic and informative videos. It’s an effective style that can be used to tell a story, explain a complex topic, or simply create a visually appealing video.

Here are some examples of motion graphics:

  • The opening credits of a movie
  • An explainer video for a new product
  • A social media ad

Motion graphics is a versatile tool that can be used for a variety of purposes. It is a powerful way to communicate complex ideas in a clear and engaging way.

If you’d like us to assist with your next motion graphics project, don’t hesitate to reach out and contact us. We’d love to have a chat and discuss how we can bring your vision to life.

How much does Motion Graphics cost?

Well, it depends on a few things, like how long you want the video to be, how complex you want it to be, and how much attention to detail you want.

Simple 2D motion graphics can cost as little as $7k, assuming the duration is short and there’s limited or no character animation involved.

But if you’re looking for something more complex, with character animation, 3D elements, and more attention to detail, then you’re probably looking at a budget of $15-25k. This is where you’ll get the best bang for your buck.

And if you’re really looking to go all-out, then you could be looking at a budget of up to $80k. This is where we can do our absolute best work, with full-3D motion graphics and lots of character animation.

But don’t worry, we’re flexible. Whatever your budget is, we’ll try and find a solution to match.

If you’re interested to know how much your next motion graphics video might cost, reach out and let us know your project details. We’d be happy to chat through your requirements and provide a non-obligation quote.

How long does Motion Graphics take to produce?

It depends on the complexity of the project. Really simple projects can take as little as 3-4 weeks, but a more comfortable turnaround time is 6-8 weeks. This gives us enough time to incorporate your feedback and make sure the video is the best it can be. More complex projects, such as those with lots of character or 3D animation, can take up to 16 weeks.

But don’t worry, we’re flexible. If you need your video sooner, we can usually find a way to make it happen. For example, we can increase our production team or work on different parts of the video in parallel. Just let us know what you need and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
