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 on YouTube
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!
