ANIMAL ( ENERGY ) CONSERVATION
Something a little topical at the moment, so heres a bit of humour to re-emphasise an important point. Something a Cartoon does so well don't you think? ;)

Whiteboard Animations sell your business

I was asked to produce a unique Whiteboard Animation with a little bit of difference. Cartoon marketing videos are all on trend and really help sell Businesses internally or externally, give a twist for Powerpoint Presentations and optimise your Brand on your website. Whiteboard animations are engaging videos that deliver your message in a unique way no matter what sector you work in. This limited colour sequence, really gave the animation a Corporate/Branded feel for the client...
