Transform your content with animation and motion graphics


If you want to stand out online, you need superb content: content that’s compelling, clear, and consistent. Over the last few years, animation and motion graphics have grown in popularity with organisations big and small keen to showcase what they offer in attention-grabbing ways – and Blackwood is helping them.

Animation is truly the perfect medium for the digital age, capturing the audience’s attention and keeping it… with the potential to be shared millions of times.

Why is animation so popular? It conveys key messages quickly and powerfully. What’s more, because it uses digital or hand-drawn imagery, the only limit to what’s possible is the designer’s imagination. It’s supremely versatile with boundless options, and the assets used to create it can be reused in various formats.

At Blackwood, we also specialise in motion graphics that seamlessly blend supplied video footage and photography with dynamic animated elements. This approach allows us to create visually stunning content that amplifies your message. By integrating your existing videos and photos, we enhance them with graphic animations to make them even more engaging and impactful.

Whether it’s for your website, conferences, presentations, training materials, YouTube, Facebook, or other social media platforms, animation and motion graphics provide exceptional value. A short, powerful piece that truly resonates with your audience can achieve significant reach and engagement.

A solution for every budget

The cost of an animation or motion graphics project will depend on various factors, from whether you use 2D or 3D formats, how long you want it to be, and whether it will include video or stills photography, a voiceover, or a music backing track. For instance, a two to two-and-a-half-minute graphics-only video with a voiceover will cost you about the same as the design, production, print, and distribution of a high-quality, high-volume print project.

Work with the process (not against it)

It’s important we get the story right before embarking on production. Investing time in this part of the process ensures we fully work out how the visuals will flow (the storyboard) before we start developing the content. Making changes further down the line can drastically slow things down and add to your costs. We will help define a style that fits your brand and communications message.
