“Truly Fantastic”

“Working with Louisa was effortless—she instantly grasped what we were hoping to achieve through our whiteboard video and the few edits that we did have to the final project were made speedily and without hesitation. We were operating under a shortened timeframe due to holiday travel and an upcoming Board meeting, but Louisa produced a truly fantastic piece of art for our use well before the deadline.

It is very difficult to please my Board of Directors. Louisa's video received a round of applause when debuted at our first Board meeting of 2018. I could not be more thrilled with the video or Louisa's services. I will be using CCA at the first opportunity in the future! THANK YOU!”

Why Whiteboard Sells


GRABS ATTENTION

Whiteboard videos are a great way to engage your web visitor. Your viewer is instantly put at ease due to the casual and informal feel and they continue watching because they want to see the drawing completed and experience the final product. Drawings are a primary and very basic way of communicating and people are drawn (sorry for the pun!) to them. When your viewer is relaxed and engaged, they will take notice and connect with your message and you'll be more likely to make a sale.

FLEXIBLE BRANDING

Whiteboard animations are completely custom and can be crafted specifically to reflect your branding, but in that folksy, familiar style. Whatever your message or brand, it is reinforced in a positive, fun way. You can’t go wrong.

DON'T WASTE YOUR SPACE

What's the point of putting your message on the web if it's not going to grab people — and let's face it — entertain them? You want to be memorable; you want to sell your product. With whiteboard animation, your message stays with your visitor and they are more likely to remember and choose you over your competitor.

APPEALS TO PEOPLE AND SEARCH ENGINES BOTH

A picture is worth a thousand words, and moving pictures are worth even more! Animations are the exact opposite of text on a page. Viewers connect with the drawings on an immediate and emotional level. Also, search engines take note when people stay on your site to watch your animation, giving your site better rankings.

The city is also a major center of television broadcasting, book publishing, advertising, and other facets of mass communication. It became a major movie making site in the 1990s, and it is a preeminent art center, with artists revitalizing many of its neighborhoods. The most celebrated newspapers are the New York Times and the .

 

New York attracts many conventions including the national Democratic (1868, 1924, 1976, 1980, 1992) and Republican (2004) party conventions and was the site of two World's Fairs (1939 40; 1964 65). It is served by three major airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia Airport, both in Queens, and Newark International Airport, in New Jersey. Railroads converge upon New York from all points.With its vast cultural and educational resources, famous shops and restaurants, places of entertainment (including the theater district and many off Broadway theaters), striking and diversified architecture , and parks and botanical gardens, New York draws millions of tourists every year.

Why Is Whiteboard Animation So Effective?

 

We know there are many ways to make a video, so why is it that whiteboard animation stands head and shoulders above the rest?

 

It Starts with Drawing

 

With this medium, drawing is the defining characteristic, and when it comes to visual communication, drawing is one of the oldest forms. In fact, some cave drawings are more than 30,000 years old, which shows that long before the invention of paper, pottery, or even farming, drawings were used to communicate ideas. In fact, the idea of civilization itself was pre-dated by drawing by several thousand years.

 

Remember that every drawing ever made requires the viewer's imagination to bring it to life: prior to that it's just an illusion. And therein lies the beauty of whiteboard animation, because the viewer witnesses the creation of the illusion. New lines create possibilities, and the image is undefined until it becomes something recognizable. The viewer understands only too well that the artist is simply making lines on a whiteboard; however, these marks begin to transform as the drawing continues, and then something happens in the viewer's mind: the marks become something recognizable - perhaps an object, a person, or a face. It's simply magical watching something appear from just a few lines on a whiteboard; and perhaps part of the magic is that the viewer is left wondering what will happen next.

 

Telling a Story

 

Ultimately, a whiteboard animation is designed to tell a story; and storytelling is the perfect way to communicate an idea. It can be as instructional and direct as a training video, or as elaborate and fanciful as a fairytale. Perhaps the definition of whiteboard animation is that it's the simultaneous process of verbal and visual storytelling. Studies show that, in terms of learning and retention, the simultaneous delivery of both visual and verbal material is more effective than using one mode by itself, or even in succession with another mode. Basically, learning is enhanced when the dual modality of whiteboard animation delivers a synergistic effect.

 

The Human Element

 

In today's world of powerful computers there are many ways to create a drawing: there's certainly no denying that computers can crunch out details and make drawings look sharp and clean, and they're definitely vital in today's media production. Even the videos we create are dependent on computers for various steps in the process. It's become increasingly rare to find something made by hand, by a human, because we're living in a world dominated by media that's computer-based.

 

It's this human element of whiteboard animation that brings such a level of authenticity to an idea, even though the viewer may not be aware of it. Whiteboard animation pulls an idea down to a human level, down to earth, making it easier to digest and making it more relatable. Perhaps whiteboard animation is so successful because the content becomes more approachable and less intimidating.

 

Contrast and Simplicity

 

The simplicity and contrast of black and white lines has become a welcome reprieve from the never-ending stimulation viewers are bombarded with from media channels and the Internet. More and more people are continuously connected to the Internet through their computers, smart phones, and other devices; and there's certainly no shortage of sites to visit, songs to download, things to click on, and people to contact. It's what's commonly known today as information overload, and we're facing it on a daily basis.

 

But, our minds are always looking for simplicity, and this desire is satisfied with whiteboard animation because it uses high contrast but simple images to tell a story. Our minds distill sensory input down to the essentials by discarding unnecessary fluff and nonsense. This happens all the time and, without this ability, we probably wouldn't be able to function in today's world - there's simply too much going on. With whiteboard animation there are no unnecessary elements, so the mind is not required to dedicate resources to filter distractions, and can dedicate additional resources to the ideas being presented.

 

We Love Being Entertained!

 

Whiteboard videos are entertaining, and this goes back to the magic of watching someone draw. We're all fascinated with the creative way an image relates to the spoken word. Besides using a live artist, animations are also used, which adds an entirely new level of intrigue and magic. When you have something that's both interesting and engaging, it simply adds to the fascination of watching a whiteboard animation.

 

The Simplicity of Distribution

 

Because this is a digital video, it can be distributed in various layers among many platforms. It can be linked to in an email, hosted on a website, placed in an electronic textbook, shown in a presentation, uploaded, downloaded, copied, shared - whatever! Once your whiteboard animation is ready, you can use it or hand it out to anyone you like. Even while you're sleeping, your video can be working for you 24 hours a day, travelling the world. What better way to reach your target audience?

How Using an Animated Video Series Can Help Grow Your Business

 

Companies that use an animated video series can still maintain brand consistency whilst sending out a multifaceted message. Then, once consumers become accustomed to the style of your videos, they become more accepting-of and responsive-to the subject matter of subsequent videos. Your viewers will very quickly become aware that these are your signature visuals, so they'll be able to experience your brand without any written explanation. Through your videos, your message will come across loud and clear.

 

The Benefits of an Animated Video Series

 

One of the benefits of a video series is that viewers will increase their knowledge of your brand each and every time they watch a new video. And there's a cost saving for your business too, because once your visual brand has become well established the video production company will find it much quicker and easier to create new videos.

 

Using an animated video series means you'll be able to offer a consistent message via a series of videos. In addition, having a uniform visual theme running through your video series will allow you to speak to different audiences and/or relay different information.

 

Using a video series, brands can –

 

- Highlight Any Number of Different Products

 

-An animated video series can be used to feature a variety of different products offered by one company;

 

- Appeal to Different Buyer Personas and Audiences- Using an animated video series, businesses can direct their videos to different audiences, like different customers and buying personas, all the while keeping their branding consistent.

 

- Target Different Parts of the Sales Cycle

 

-Using an animated video series, a business can target their message towards potential buyers during various parts of the sales cycle.

 

- What Type of Business Can Benefit from an Animated Video Series?

 

When a business is selling a product, and because consumers are unique individuals, it stands to reason that different people will respond to different aspects of your product. This is where an animated video series can become a great tool for your business. Developing an animated video series can ensure that every viewer will understand the benefits of your product. So, the answer to the question is this: Any company with a wide-ranging audience can benefit from developing an animated video series.

 

The following examples show how an animated video series can lead to business growth –

 

- Companies Selling a Multiphase Product-Companies selling products with various stages of purchasing can use an animated video series to cater to each buyer persona. As an example, executives and decision- makers would require different information to purchasing managers, whereas the content end-consumers require would be entirely different. All these different stages of information can be covered by an animated video series.- Businesses Selling a Variety of Products- An animated video series is the perfect fit for a business selling many products because the series can explain each product, whilst always maintaining consistent branding.- Organizations with Many Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)- An animated video series can be used to address common customer queries, thus cutting back on customer service calls.- Companies Required to Produce Training Units- An animated video series is a quick and effective way of providing explanations and step-by-step techniques. A consistent visual theme can be very helpful when individuals are learning a new procedure. It streamlines the education process by helping them retain data from one video to the next.

The Four Pillars of a Successful Video Marketing Strategy

 

There are many advantages to implementing a video marketing strategy, including -

 

- Getting your message out in an interesting format;

 

- Attracting ideal clients;

 

- Becoming immediately visible;

 

- Having a greater impact; and

 

- Making more money!

 

Studies show that when you use video as a marketing tool your chances of jumping to Page 1 on a Google search increase by a whopping 53 times!

 

Video marketing is also referred to as "relationship" marketing, because it builds loyalty, it's perfect for connecting to viewers, and it develops the know, like, and trust aspect, which is vitally important when conducting online business. To create an effective video, emphasis must be placed on your marketing strategy. By this we mean, you should ask yourself the following questions when considering your video campaign -

 

- What goal am I trying to achieve with this video?

 

- Will this video accomplish my business objective?

 

- Who will see this video? and

 

- What do I expect from the viewer once they've watched this video?

 

Your first consideration must be strategy; then you can think about technology, tools, and equipment. To ensure you've got a solid structure for your video, try using the following Four Pillar formula -

 

No. 1: Purpose

 

Put some careful thought into the purpose of your video regarding business goals, because understanding your objectives will help shape your message, determine the appropriate platforms for your video, and the methods of distribution. Your list of business goals may include increasing your visibility, creating awareness, generating leads, building credibility and trust, growing your list, launching a product, selling a service, driving web traffic, and so on.

 

No. 2: Premise

 

The next step is to determine the story, message, or script for your video plan. The premise is how you intend to communicate with your viewer and move them to action. What are you trying to achieve? How do you want the viewer to react once they've watched your video?

 

The key here is to remember that online viewers have a very limited attention span, so you must keep this in mind when writing your script or formulating a message. Keep your video short and get to the point as quickly as possible in a clear, direct, and concise manner. Except for webinars, training videos, and so on, you may have noticed that most successful YouTube videos are less than three minutes in length.

 

No. 3: Platform

 

Some might argue that the only two types of videos are on-camera and off-camera, but there are, in fact, various other styles and options. You need to find the platform that perfectly fits your style and your needs.

 

Most creators of video typically default to on-camera video, which can include a live webcast, a video tips series, an interview with two or more people, or the direct-to-camera video. When you're trying to promote trust and credibility, on-camera videos are effective at connecting with viewers in an engaging and entertaining manner, and for promoting a personal service.

 

On the other hand, off-camera videos are very effective for training videos and webinars, or other situations where you're sharing a lot of information. In addition, you don't personally need to be on-camera, which many shy people prefer.

 

No. 4: Promotion

 

The fourth pillar in our formula is promotion, which means how you intend to market, share, and distribute your video online. To the best of your ability you must determine where you believe your target market is, then share your video there. Once your video is live on YouTube, one-click sharing can be quickly set up to Twitter, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, and others. YouTube provides an embed code which you can use to put your video on your website or blog; plus, they'll provide a link to your video so it can be sent out in an email to your list. Don't ignore other sites that accept video, like Instagram (which has a 15-second limit), Pinterest, SlideShare, Vimeo and Viddler. The idea is to get your video out there, so the more you distribute it, the more chance you have of viewers finding it, watching it, and sharing it.

 

Be Consistent with Your Video Marketing Strategy

 

Like any marketing campaign, video marking should not be considered a one-time event. Create a long-term plan for effectively using video to promote your business. To achieve the most impact, your video efforts must be consistent and ongoing.

 

Try to get some momentum going with your video creations. One such way to create this momentum is to develop a series of'expert tips' videos so you can share your knowledge. Developing a series of short how-to videos will expand your influence and increase your credibility. The advantage of this tactic is that the videos can all be recorded in one session, with once or twice-weekly'tips' videos being posted on YouTube. This type of advertising campaign gives you visibility on the Internet, and your viewers will learn to trust your expertise - and your brand!

Some history on the Website Design Services Industry

 

Website Designer

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.

 

Web Designer Tools and technologies

 

Web designers use a variety of different tools depending on what part of the production process they are involved in. These tools are updated over time by newer standards and software but the principles behind them remain the same. Web designers use both vector and raster graphics editors to create web-formatted imagery or design prototypes. Technologies used to create websites include W3C standards like HTML and CSS, which can be hand-coded or generated by WYSIWYG editing software. Other tools web designers might use include mark up validators and other testing tools for usability and accessibility to ensure their web sites meet web accessibility guidelines.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

User experience design and interactive design

 

User understanding of the content of a website often depends on user understanding of how the website works. This is part of the user experience design. User experience is related to layout, clear instructions and labeling on a website. How well a user understands how they can interact on a site may also depend on the interactive design of the site. If a user perceives the usefulness of the website, they are more likely to continue using it. Users who are skilled and well versed with website use may find a more distinctive, yet less intuitive or less user-friendly website interface useful nonetheless. However, users with less experience are less likely to see the advantages or usefulness of a less intuitive website interface. This drives the trend for a more universal user experience and ease of access to accommodate as many users as possible regardless of user skill. Much of the user experience design and interactive design are considered in the user interface design.

 

Advanced interactive functions may require plug-ins if not advanced coding language skills. Choosing whether or not to use interactivity that requires plug-ins is a critical decision in user experience design. If the plug-in doesn't come pre-installed with most browsers, there's a risk that the user will have neither the know how or the patience to install a plug-in just to access the content. If the function requires advanced coding language skills, it may be too costly in either time or money to code compared to the amount of enhancement the function will add to the user experience. There's also a risk that advanced interactivity may be incompatible with older browsers or hardware configurations. Publishing a function that doesn't work reliably is potentially worse for the user experience than making no attempt. It depends on the target audience if it's likely to be needed or worth any risks.

 

Page layout

 

Part of the user interface design is affected by the quality of the page layout. For example, a designer may consider whether the site's page layout should remain consistent on different pages when designing the layout. Page pixel width may also be considered vital for aligning objects in the layout design. The most popular fixed-width websites generally have the same set width to match the current most popular browser window, at the current most popular screen resolution, on the current most popular monitor size. Most pages are also center-aligned for concerns of aesthetics on larger screens.

 

Fluid layouts increased in popularity around 2000 as an alternative to HTML-table-based layouts and grid-based design in both page layout design principle and in coding technique, but were very slow to be adopted. This was due to considerations of screen reading devices and varying windows sizes which designers have no control over. Accordingly, a design may be broken down into units (sidebars, content blocks, embedded advertising areas, navigation areas) that are sent to the browser and which will be fitted into the display window by the browser, as best it can. As the browser does recognize the details of the reader's screen (window size, font size relative to window etc.) the browser can make user-specific layout adjustments to fluid layouts, but not fixed-width layouts. Although such a display may often change the relative position of major content units, sidebars may be displaced below body text rather than to the side of it. This is a more flexible display than a hard-coded grid-based layout that doesn't fit the device window. In particular, the relative position of content blocks may change while leaving the content within the block unaffected. This also minimizes the user's need to horizontally scroll the page.

Some history on the Graphic Design Services Industry

 

Graphic Designer

Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, photography and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used synonymously. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. They use typography, visual arts, and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), advertising, web design, communication design, product packaging and signage.

 

Applications

 

From road signs to technical schematics, from interoffice memorandums to reference manuals, graphic design enhances transfer of knowledge and visual messages. Readability and legibility is enhanced by improving the visual presentation and layout of text.

 

Design can also aid in selling a product or idea through effective visual communication. It is applied to products and elements of company identity like logos, colors, packaging, and text. Together these are defined as branding (see also advertising). Branding has increasingly become important in the range of services offered by many graphic designers, alongside corporate identity. Whilst the terms are often used interchangeably, branding is more strictly related to the identifying mark or trade name for a product or service, whereas corporate identity can have a broader meaning relating to the structure and ethos of a company, as well as to the company's external image. Graphic designers will often form part of a team working on corporate identity and branding projects. Other members of that team can include marketing professionals, communications consultants and commercial writers.

 

Textbooks are designed to present subjects such as geography, science, and math. These publications have layouts which illustrate theories and diagrams. A common example of graphics in use to educate is diagrams of human anatomy. Graphic design is also applied to layout and formatting of educational material to make the information more accessible and more readily understandable.

 

Skills

 

A graphic design project may involve the stylization and presentation of existing text and either preexisting imagery or images developed by the graphic designer. Artistic pieces can be incorporated in both traditional and digital form, which involves the use of visual arts, typography, and page layout techniques for publications and marketing. For example, a newspaper story begins with the journalists and photojournalists and then becomes the graphic designer's job to organize the page into a reasonable layout and determine if any other graphic elements should be required. In a magazine article or advertisement, often the graphic designer or art director will commission photographers or illustrators to create original pieces just to be incorporated into the design layout. Or the designer may utilize stock imagery or photography. Contemporary design practice has been extended to the modern computer, for example in the use of WYSIWYG user interfaces, often referred to as interactive design, or multimedia design. Another aspect of graphic design is to have good research skills, analyzing a work of art and simultaneously seeing it in new ways. Graphic Design need skills such as power to convince the audience and selling the design. Communication is a key part in graphic design. The process of graphic design include the "process school" which is an approach to the subject that is concerned with the actual process of communication; it especially highlights the channels and media through which messages are transmitted and by which senders and receivers encode and decode. Semiotic School on the other hand, is message as a construction of signs which through interaction with receivers, produces meaning; communication as an agent. The process school is like the way in which a message is brought out to society.

Some history on the Whiteboard Animation Video Services Industry

 

Whiteboard animation

Whiteboard animation is a process where a creative story and storyboard with pictures is drawn on a whiteboard (or something that resembles a whiteboard) by artists who record themselves in the process of their artwork. It is used in TV and internet advertising to communicate messages in a unique way.

 

Terminology

 

The term whiteboard animation comes from the process of someone drawing on a whiteboard and recording it. The actual effect is a time-lapse, or sometimes stop-motion. Actual animation is rarely used but has been incorporated. Other terms are video scribing, and animated doodling. These video animation styles are now seen in many variations, and have taken a turn into many other animation styles. With the introduction of software to create the whiteboard animations, the process has many different manifestations of varying quality.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

Animation

 

Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and the illusion of change[Note 1] by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation. Animation can be recorded with either analogue media, a flip book, motion picture film, video tape, digital media, including formats with animated GIF, Flash animation and digital video. To display animation, a digital camera, computer, or projector are used along with new technologies that are produced.

 

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second. Computer animation processes generating animated images with the general term computer-generated imagery (CGI). 3D animation uses computer graphics, while 2D animation are used for stylistic, low bandwidth and faster real time renderings.

 

Video editing

 

The term video editing can refer to: The process of manipulating video images. Once the province of expensive machines called video editors, video editing software is now available for personal computers and workstations. Video editing includes cutting segments (trimming), re-sequencing clips, and adding transitions and other Special Effects.

 

Linear video editing, using video tape and is edited in a very linear way. Several video clips from different tapes are recorded to one single tape in the order that they will appear.

 

Non-linear editing system (NLE), This is edited on computers with specialised software. These are non destructive to the video being edited and use programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro and Avid.

 

Offline editing is the process in which raw footage is copied from an original source, without affecting the original film stock or video tape. Once the editing has been completely edited, the original media is then re-assembled in the online editing stage.

 

Online editing is the process of reassembling the edit to full resolution video after an offline edit has been performed and is done in the final stage of a video production.

 

Vision mixing, when working within live television and video production environments. A vision mixer is used to cut live feed coming from several cameras in real time.
