Whiteboard Animation Examples

Whiteboard Animation is suitable for large and small organisations. I have delivered projects for large corporates and micro businesses. Customers love these animations, as generally we can create anything you want.

For design inspiration, click the ‘sketch board’ blue button below.

The journey is relatively simple although if you are not used to storytelling, you will need to re-educate your thinking away from advertising. There are some illustrations, infographics and a storytelling canvas to assist you with that process. If you’re stuck just ask me.

  • Step 1: Wangle an interesting story out of you (the hardest bit).

  • Step 2: Help with the script (improve and shorten it).

  • Step 3: Split the script into scenes (makes it easier to work with).

  • Step 4: Dream, dream and dream some more about what illustrations would be great and then dream some more (the creative step!).

  • Step 5: Ask my illustrator what illustrations to draw (he's super talented).

  • Step 6: Present illustrations in storyboard format (using google docs).

  • Step 7: Get voiceover recorded by a voiceover artist (pros are best).

  • Step 8: Produce the animation once illustrations have been drawn (production, my favourite part).

  • Step 9: Sync the animation to the voice (editing step).

  • Step 10: Add some background music (nothing too corny though).

  • Step 11: Send 1st draft for review (the scary step, keeping fingers crossed).

  • Step 12: Adjustments and amends as requested by you because you're seeing everything for the first time and then maybe another 2 afterwards (we're all human and like to change stuff).

  • Step 13: Render HD video and transfer via Box.com, to do with what as you wish (let's get this baby out there!). 

  • General: Managing the project using Trello, an online project management tool. You will be invited to join this service. It avoids having to email back and forth (sounds like a pain, but you'll thank me later).
