I’ve worked at a lot of corporations in my design career and have encountered a lot of office situations that have inspired me to create these cartoons. Here’s another animation, created on Goanimate .
Enjoy, and we’ll be back to providing you informative content to answer your design questions and needs next week. 🙂
Here at Rich Media Design Productions, we acknowledge that business is a serious subject, but we are not without a sense of humor, in fact, we couldn’t get our creative design juices flowing without it.
So I am posting, a few of my animations created on the fly ( and posted to my Youtube channel) to celebrate the upcoming Christmas holiday and wishing you and yours the very best this holiday season!
With the explosion of video sharing sites, such as Youtube and Vimeo, and the increase of the marketing potential of viral videos, there are a variety of video marketing ideas that are rapidly developing and becoming available even to the small business marketer. Keep in mind though , not all of these video technologies are applicable to every type of business. Some ideas are more suitable for business to business audiences and others are more suitable for business to consumer audiences. Your video content needs to be modified for your target audience.
Obviously, other factors to consider are the size of your own business and your marketing budget. But, don’t be discouraged if you don’t have the huge advertising budgets that corporations or Fortune 500 companies have at their disposal. With the advent of new video technologies, there are more and more affordable video products and services coming on the market to provide affordable video content creation in order to market your product or services to your customers. The following ideas discuss developing video content for small businesses that sell products to consumers and to some extent can be modified to work for some services.
I am always amazed at the creative uses that are becoming available with interactive media tools. This animator has combined an animation and included QR codes (of his other popular animations of course, I tested the codes with my mobile phone barcode scanner app) to promote his brand on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Not just a rhetorical design question anymore —rich media is another term for the word that most people are familiar with interactive “multi-media”. And rich media development and techniques are rapidly being used and developed in order to deliver interactive banner ads and other media that enables the user to interact with the media provided whether it is a video, website or other form of advertising. One stellar example is Youtube mentioned in Mashable’s article “Youtube Launches Skippable Ads” which recently developed the option for end users to choose what advertising they want to watch!
