Motion graphics are a powerful form of visual storytelling that quickly grabs attention and moves people. You’ve seen these graphics just about everywhere—in commercials, films, social media, television and streaming media (think Game of Thrones), and websites like YouTube.
Motion graphics bring visual concepts to life in innovative ways through typography, audio, video, photography, illustration, animation and cinematic techniques. Motion graphics are different from typical animation because they are not story-based and often represent shapes and forms, such as logos for brands.
Often referred to within the industry as “broadcast design”—when used for creating graphics for a TV show or network spot—motion graphics is one of the fastest growing areas within the broadcasting field.
