Use 2D animation to deliver a consistent message and build brand value

Using 2d animation is a great way to get a consistent message or idea across to your audience, customers or fanbase. It’s a fantastic medium and a cost effective way to tell a story, explain a complicated process, entertain or to educate. 

2d animation and motion graphics are often thought to be the same thing but there are differences, which you can read about in our article ‘what’s he difference between 2d animation and motion graphics’.

But regardless of any differences they are often used together and ultimately contribute as 2d animations, 2d animated explainer videos and 2d animated adverts. 

The benefits of 2d animations is that its very versatile and can be used in any style of animation as it can easily be be adapted to any branding guidelines that an organisation may already have in place.

Use 2D animation for advertising

Utilising the benefits of 2d animation for adverts is an effective way to get an idea across is a short time frame or a snap! The time frames really depend on the intended purpose. For example – 

If it was a snappy animated clip, which perhaps plays in loop and is distributed across social media to grab quick attention; then the animated clip may only last 5-10 seconds. 

However if the animation was created as a tv advertising commercial for cable or satellite broadcast; then these are often created in 10 second segments and usually never last longer than 30 seconds total. 

These shorter forms of animated productions are usually used when advertising a product or service, which can be understood in a short timeframe. 

2d animation and motions graphics are perfect for these types of advertising circumstances as its quick and efficient to produce multiple short animated clips, so adverts can easily be A – B tested and or simply have multiple product or service adverts distributed or broadcasted at the same time and or new adverts created quickly to capitalise on a new trend or a new product release.

Longer adverts do exist and are often used on platforms like YouTube. Often even being the actual full explainer video, simply used as an advert. At the end of the day if the intention is to get someone to simply watch a video, then you might as well use the full video as the actual advert, rather than using a shorter clip and then needing the user to click away from their intended content to view your advertised content, which is less likely! So just let it roll! 

This does however work when the intention is to get a user to click on your website to buy something or download an app etc But that goes more in to the digital marketing end of things, which we at Painting Pixels can also help with!

2D animation for explainer and corporate videos

Another area where 2d animated content is used and suits perfectly is in the slightly longer form 2d animated explainer videos, which are used for corporate explainer videos or product and services showcases or even to demonstrate and educate users on a complicated process. 

The 2d animated medium helps people to stay focused and engaged in content for longer as they can better understand what they are viewing; even if its a number of minutes long and regardless if its created to promote something or educate someone on a complicated product. 

It’s because people enjoy 2d animated cartoons no matter how old they are! The 2d animation medium is cost effective, flexible, adaptable and visually easy on the eye and so easy to consume. So using 2d animation is a great way for a business to advertise and explain their products and services to the masses in a consistent and effect manner!

    Fun 2D Animation for J and L Recruitment

    I am really delighted to have discovered Painting Pixels. I did ponder as to what service I could expect having noted that your company seemed to be the only one offering such services within the Ipswich area. I cannot advise enough on how pleased and impressed I was with the service and end-product of which you provided. You have created a stunning, fun and engaging animation for us to throw out on the internet to help promote our services, and allowing us to engage better with our desired market and proving our understanding into the industry we work. Your creative thinking inside and outside the box has taken a subject matter that isn’t really associated with Jun and colour, to something that is interesting and exciting to watch and learn about. Based on how this animation has turned out, we will be creating more additional detailed animations based on particular segments and will definitely be using Painting Pixels again. I’m really happy with the result and would recommend using Painting Pixels for everything creative!

    Bespoke 3D Logo Design

    I needed a logo created for my new company. I didn’t want just any old bog standard 2D logo from your everyday graphic designers. I needed a premium 3D logo, which had great detail and depth. I contacted Painting Pixels as I could tell they are experts in 3D. It was coming to the Christmas break and wanted to get the logo complete. They managed to fit my logo in to their schedule and even came back into the studio on Christmas eve to make some final adjustments. They created a fantastic looking 3D logo, which I can now use everywhere and it has the potential to be animated in the future. They went above and beyond and I’m extremely happy with the service and final product.

    3D Explainer Animation for Trade Show

    Fantastic service and communication! We wanted to exhibit our SEO services at a large internet convention. However due to our line of work, we didn’t have many images or graphics, which would help attract attention from the passerby. We wanted a way to demonstrate our services which mainly deals with statistics, web rankings and PPC and wanted a way to show off these services in a more visual manner. We heard about the quality work that Painting Pixels does so gave them a call. They came to our studio and brainstormed some great ideas with us. They created a fantastic 3d mascot and a whole new world and a completely new way of presenting a data driven service. We are delighted with the end result and we are also very much impressed with the level of communication that we received throughout the entire process. This is a completely different style of marketing for us; but because of the high level of communication and service; we felt very well looked after. We would highly recommend.

    Logo Design for FBS

    Would Recommend Every time! I wanted a fantastic looking set logos which would both be corporate and not too corporate at the same time. Also I needed the logos to help bring all the different business services together but still make them look like they are full professional separate services but under the same company for better service and convenience. Painting pixels created a unique set of logos which looked professional and separated the business service cleverly by using different colours and a graphic feature. I am very happy with the result and out of the box thinking and would recommend them every time.

    Interactive Real-time Car App

    Fantastic Technology and Vision! We are a company which uses that latest in modern technology and design to create our extraordinary super cars. We needed a way to demonstrate particular features and to demonstrate also how specific features like the unique door system would open. Originally we were going to go for a standard 3D animation as we did not know about the 4d technology. We searched around for many different 3d design companies and Painting Pixels quality of work caught our eye. After a detailed meeting we were delighted to learn that they can offer exactly what we actually wanted which was indeed 4D animation. They created an Application for us which allowed us to rotate our new super car with the mouse which meant that we could precisely see how the car looks from every angle. Also the 4D allows us to zoom in and see how the more intricate design features worked. We are delight to have met with Painting Pixels as they had the vision to see beyond what we asked for and offered us a better solution to our problem and so gave us exactly what we wanted. This was a fantastic use of technology and Painting Pixels did a fantastic job.

They created a hand crafted bespoke website for us and the unique look and design appealed well to our services and worked well with the head office guidelines. We did not have a large budget however Painting Pixels offered us this full and bespoke site at discounted rate as a charitable gesture. We are delighted with the website and appreciate the great value. Painting Pixels continues to support us and maintains the domain and also hosts the website free of charge. Good honest company, we would definitely recommend them.


    Monitor My Baby Website Re-design

    Great Design work! We needed to have our e-commerce website redesigned. We didn’t want to use a common web development company as they tend to have a specific design style. So after a quick search we found Painting Pixels. Their work and range of skills looked very impressive. They created a very attractive design template that wrapped to the design structure of our site. The design appealed well to our customer base and looks bright, clean and colourful. It is both attractive and easy to navigate and so our website continues to function fantastically but also looks good. The re- design was created very quick and the whole integration and service as a whole was very efficient and so I am very pleased with how the project turned out. We will be using them again.

    Illustration of Concept Data in a Beautiful Way

    Brilliant! I needed to demonstrate a concept that I had to add to my book. I created a rough black and white hand drawn sketch but needed it to be created in to a professional illustration. Painting Pixels understood the concept clearly and produced a fine illustration, which perfectly demonstrates my concept. It’s a complicated concept and so I am delighted that they understood it so well and recreated it with fantastic quality, brilliant.


    Bespoke Website Design

    Complete Dedication! We needed a new website for our Ipswich market and so approached Painting Pixels. We had seen their previous work and were very impressed.

Painting Pixels were very friendly and assured us that they would give us nothing less than a quality site and they were right. The website that we got is way better than we thought. The way it both looks and functions is perfect. We were constantly updated with the progress and knew that they were completely dedicated to producing a site that we would love. I would recommend them every time.

    Logo Design – Your First Motor

    First Class Job! We needed a cool new logo but didn’t really know what we wanted. We looked around at many different design companies and their portfolio and range of work was very uninspired. We came across Painting Pixels and loved their work and range of design disciplines. We did not give them a design brief but instead just explained what the company does, the whole process was very quick and hassle free. They came up with this eye catching and memorable logo which we love. We are very happy with the speed and quality and would highly recommend.


    3D Dredging animation

    Way better than we had imagined! We needed a 3D animation which would clearly demonstrate a unique dredging process and wanted to showcase this at an exhibition. We called Painting Pixels to help make our animation. We did not at first realise that their offices were based three hours drive away, however we had no problems with dealing with a company that was not local to us. They were very flexible in meeting our requirements and clear in their approach. They constantly updated us on every stage of the process and the end product was way better than we had imagined. We had many comments at the exhibition regarding the quality of the animation and so we are very happy to have worked with Painting Pixels and will most definitely be using them again.

I will be using them again and recommend them to everyone.
