"Truly Fantastic"

"Working with Louisa was effortless - she instantly grasped what we were hoping to achieve through our whiteboard video and the few edits that we did have to the final project were made speedily and without hesitation. We were operating under a shortened timeframe due to holiday travel and an upcoming Board meeting, but Louisa produced a truly fantastic piece of art for our use well before the deadline.

It is very difficult to please my Board of Directors. Louisa's video received a round of applause when debuted at our first Board meeting of 2018. I could not be more thrilled with the video or Louisa's services. I will be using CCA at the first opportunity in the future! THANK YOU!"

Why Whiteboard Sells


GRABS ATTENTION

Whiteboard videos are a great way to engage your web visitor. Your viewer is instantly put at ease due to the casual and informal feel and they continue watching because they want to see the drawing completed and experience the final product. Drawings are a primary and very basic way of communicating and people are drawn (sorry for the pun!) to them. When your viewer is relaxed and engaged, they will take notice and connect with your message and you'll be more likely to make a sale.

FLEXIBLE BRANDING

Whiteboard animations are completely custom and can be crafted specifically to reflect your branding, but in that folksy, familiar style. Whatever your message or brand, it is reinforced in a positive, fun way. You can’t go wrong.

DON'T WASTE YOUR SPACE

What's the point of putting your message on the web if it's not going to grab people — and let's face it — entertain them? You want to be memorable; you want to sell your product. With whiteboard animation, your message stays with your visitor and they are more likely to remember and choose you over your competitor.

APPEALS TO PEOPLE AND SEARCH ENGINES BOTH

A picture is worth a thousand words, and moving pictures are worth even more! Animations are the exact opposite of text on a page. Viewers connect with the drawings on an immediate and emotional level. Also, search engines take note when people stay on your site to watch your animation, giving your site better rankings.

Information for the state of St. Louis

St. Louis, the second largest city in Missouri, is located in the east central part of the state on the Mississippi River. The city is independent and is not part of any county.St. Louis was founded by the French in 1764 when Auguste Chouteau established a fur trading post and Pierre Lacl�de Liguest, a New Orleans merchant, founded a town at the present site. They named it after King Louis XV of France and his patron saint, Louis IX. From 1770 to 1803, St. Louis was a Spanish possession, but it was ceded back to France in 1803 in accordance with the Treaty of San Ildefonso (1800), only to be acquired by the U.S. as part of the Louisiana purchase later that year.

 

The town was incorporated in 1809. From 1812 to 1821, St. Louis was the capital of the Missouri Territory, and it was incorporated as a city in 1822.John Jacob Astor opened the Western branch of the American Fur Company in 1819, and the city prospered during the early part of the 19th century as a commercial center for the fur trade. St. Louis continued to grow as a major transportation hub with the development of steamboat traffic and the later expansion of the railroads in the 1850s. The world famous Louisiana Purchase Exposition was held here in 1904.Manufacturing is important to the city's economy, and its highly developed industries include automobiles, aircraft and space technology, metal fabrication, beer, steelmaking, chemicals, food processing, and storage and distribution.The giant stainless steel Gateway Arch, 630 ft high, standing on the banks of the Mississippi, symbolizes St. Louis as the Gateway to the WestSt. Louis is an independent city and a major United States port in eastern Missouri.

 

The city reaches the western banks of the Mississippi River, which forms Missouri's eastern border with Illinois. At the 2010 census, St. Louis' population was 319,294 and a 2013 estimate put the population at 318,416, making it the 58th most populous U.S. city in 2013 and the second largest city in the state. The St. Louis metropolitan area, known as Greater St. Louis (CSA), includes the city as well nearby areas in Missouri and Illinois and is among the 20 largest metropolitan areas in the United States with a population of 2,900,605.The city of St. Louis was founded in 1764 by Pierre Lacl�de and Auguste Chouteau, and named for Louis IX of France. After the Louisiana Purchase, it became a major port on the Mississippi River. In the late 19th century, St. Louis became the fourth largest city in the United States.

 

It seceded from St. Louis County in March 1877, allowing it to become an independent city and limiting its political boundaries. In 1904, it hosted the Louisiana Purchase Exposition and the 1904 Summer Olympics. The city's population peaked in 1950, then began a long decline that continues in the 21st century. Immigration has increased, and it is the center of the largest Bosnian population in the world outside their homeland.The economy of St. Louis relies on service, manufacturing, trade, transportation of goods, and tourism. The city is home to several major corporations, The city is commonly identified with the Gateway Arch, which is part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial in downtown St. Louis.

Choosing the Right Web Design Agency

 

Perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of creating and launching a new website is choosing the right web design agency. There are many, many design companies out there looking for work, and it can become a very stressful and difficult task trying to determine which designer is the right one for you.

 

This is a very important decision and one you can't take lightly, because, let's face it, this website will be the online face of your business. Because your website will be the first point of contact for many of your customers, the quality of your site will determine whether people choose to do business with you, or not. So, you're looking for a design company that will help you reach your target audience, in addition to helping you meet your business goals.

 

So how does one choose the right web design agency? Below we've listed some guidelines that may help you select your design company -

 

Are They Listening to You?

 

You know your business better than anyone else, because you're an expert in your field. So, you know what you're selling and you have an idea of how you'd like to present your product/service to potential customers. You can't work with a web designer who won't listen to your ideas. The purpose of hiring a web design agency is to use their expertise in putting your ideas into action - it's not for the designer to create their own project.

 

They Bring Their Own Ideas to the Table

 

Whilst it's very important that your web designer listen to what you have to say, you need to hire a designer who's experienced in design and has great ideas. Of course, you know your own business, but when it comes to your website you're looking for someone who knows design; you're not getting your money's worth if you hire someone who simply nods their head and produces exactly what you say. Your experienced, professional website designer should be able to bring some exciting and innovative ideas to the table.

 

Your Chosen Website Design Agency Has Its Own Marketing Department

 

This is very important, because you need more than a great looking website: you need a website that works! Make sure the agency you choose has developers, designers, and marketers; and with this brilliant combination you can be quite sure that your website will be not only professional, but effective.

 

They Know and Understand Responsive Design

 

The words ‘responsive design' may sound like a fad, but in fact it's the only way to design a website that works. Just ask Google! Be cautious, because if a designer suggests a separate mobile website, meaning they're not familiar with responsive design, then they may not be the right designer for your website. It's true that there are cases where it's advantageous to have a separate mobile site but, generally, the preferred solution is responsive design. As more and more people are using their mobile phones and tablets to conduct their everyday business, it's imperative that your website be optimized to cater to all devices. The right web design agency will understand the advantages of responsive design.

 

They Offer a Portfolio of Live Websites

 

The best way to determine whether a web design agency knows their business, or not, is to see the work they've completed; and by this we don't mean screenshots of home pages - you need to see the actual websites in action. Visit the sites they've designed and take time to look through their portfolio. If you're struggling to find anything you like, then they're probably not the right web design agency for you.

 

How Long Have They Been Operating?

 

To be experienced in web design, a good sign of an agency's ability is their longevity. Even though the Internet changes very quickly, you're not looking for a web design company that may not be around next year. There are many, many new web design companies being created, and there are just as many closing down, and that's why we say an agency's longevity is very important. The more experienced your web design company, the more adept they'll be at changing with the times and adapting to new Internet trends: this ultimately means the more likely they'll be around if you should need support with your new website.

 

Good Designers Understand Conversion

 

There's a lot more to an effective website than just having it look nice, and a good web design agency will include a team of designers who understand conversion. In other words, they know what makes a website convert, which means they're experts at layout, navigation, and calls-to-action. Having a great looking website doesn't necessarily mean it will convert to customers, so you need your designer to use proven methods when creating your website.

 

They're Experienced in Many Industries

 

Your website must stand head and shoulders above your competitors' websites - you don't want your website to be identical to theirs. You may think it advantageous if your web design company only worked with your specific industry, but it could in fact mean that your website will end up being indistinguishable from all other businesses in your industry. If you choose a web design company that works with various industries they're more likely to create a website that's unique: a website that will reach a large audience.

 

Your Designer Has Worked at Both Local and National Levels

 

If you choose a web designer who's only worked with local businesses, it could well be that your new website won't achieve big success. You need a web design agency that understands both local businesses and national brands. If your designer understands both audiences it's more likely your website will help you reach, and even exceed, your business goals. Therefore, choose a web designer who can think both small and big.

 

They Stay on Top of Modern Design Trends

 

It's very important that your web designer stays on top of both modern design trends and the latest technology, because the last thing you need is an old-fashioned looking website. Research shows that customers are more likely to trust your business if you have a modern website, and a good design company will incorporate new, innovative, and modern trends into their websites. Your web designer should be familiar with flat design, parallax scrolling, responsive web design, and other elements and styles. You don't necessarily need all the newest fads, but there must be a good balance between what's proven to work and what's modern.

Choosing the Right Whiteboard Animation Company

 

Making the decision to invest in a whiteboard animation video is a smart business decision; a decision that can benefit your business in both the short-term and long-term. However, there are many, many companies out there producing whiteboard marketing videos, so how will you know if you've chosen the right one?

 

Below we've listed our suggestions on what to look for when contemplating hiring a whiteboard animation company-

 

Quality

 

What you don't want is an amateur-looking whiteboard video! Because, if this is what you end up with, you've just wasted a lot of time and money. Professional, experienced whiteboard animation companies employ people with a background in art; people with amazing artistic capabilities. This is an important business decision and, unless you make the right choice, your target audience won't take your business seriously.

 

Styles

 

A professional whiteboard animation company will have a selection of artistic styles for you to choose from: this may be because they're a company who employs various professional artists with animation backgrounds, or perhaps they have one ingenious artist who's capable of producing different styles.

 

In the production process of whiteboard animation, you'll start by coming up with, then perfecting, the script. Your allocated artist will then prepare some animation samples for your perusal. If you're not happy with what you see, then it's much easier to change styles than it is to change entire companies.

 

Creativity

 

You're looking for creativity, because your video needs to fuel the fire in the hearts of your customers: the last thing you need is a boring video that sends them straight to your competitors! Let's face it! People watch videos because they want to be entertained, so if your video doesn't entertain and amuse your customers, then it shouldn't be presented as entertainment. We expect animation to be imaginative, out-of-the-box, humorous, so if you're just looking for a quick way to get some cut-and-dry information to your target audience, then perhaps an animation video is not the right tool for you.

 

Memory Retention

 

Many businesses use flyers, but the problem with flyers is that consumers receive so many of them that they usually go straight into the trash; but more importantly, rarely is a flyer memorable. On the other hand, a funny and well put-together whiteboard animation can stay in viewers' minds for up to 2 months! When you combine visual and auditory teaching styles, together with some great background music and simple images, whiteboard animation can be one of the most effective and memorable video marketing techniques available.

 

Price

 

Creating a whiteboard animation may seem a simple process, and you could certainly save yourself a lot of money by producing a video yourself; but unfortunately, you'll be sacrificing style, creativity, and more importantly, quality. And sadly, there are whiteboard companies out there that charge a fortune for an end-product that looks home-made. This means that you need to do your research before hiring a whiteboard animation company. Check for testimonials; and when comparing prices, understand what you'll be receiving for your money. Sometimes it's necessary to spend a little more to achieve better service, more choices, and a professional end-result.

Explaining Whiteboard Animations

 

Whiteboard animations, also known as animated doodling or video-scribes, are videos consisting of simple illustrations drawn on a white background. Whiteboard animations are the ideal way of communicating a message or telling a story, because, through the action of drawing, they make images come to life.

 

Animated videos help the viewer better understand and retain an idea, message, or concept, because the animation is so captivating that it keeps the viewer's attention and makes it hard for them to look away. Today, whiteboard animations have become extremely popular and are being used by organizations and companies all over the world to promote, educate, and persuade the viewer.

 

Whiteboard animations are used to -

 

Explain an idea or core concept;

 

Promote a new product;

 

Describe in detail how a certain process works;

 

Tell a brand's story;

 

Communicate a training initiative or new strategy;

 

Educate the general public, or students;

 

Draw attention to a specific message; and

 

Present research findings.

 

Over the past few years the potential of video content marketing has become very obvious and, as more businesses capitalize on this growing trend, we're seeing the internet becoming increasingly populated with various types of animations and videos. Possibly the greatest advantage of a high-quality whiteboard video is that it's direct and simple. It's not dependent on flashy effects to engage the viewer; it relies solely on carefully crafted hand-drawn illustrations. It's a well-known fact that today's internet viewer has a short attention span, and these illustrations are designed to quickly captivate the viewer and help them remember what they've seen and heard in a way that's never been achieved by other video formats.

 

Why Whiteboard Animation Videos Are So Successful

 

Below we've listed the main reasons why we believe white board animations have become so effective in drawing the viewer's attention and getting your message across -

 

They're So Simple

 

In the past, videos typically used fast motion and flashy graphics to keep viewers engaged, when in fact these aspects of videos make it hard to remember what we've seen because they overload our senses. On the other hand, whiteboard animation videos use simple illustrations to get right to the point. There are no pointless distractions because everything you see is important and simply enhances the message.

 

They're Multisensory

 

Whiteboard animations use a combination of illustrations, on-screen text, and audio, and these work together to target different areas of the brain simultaneously. We all learn differently: some people learn by listening while others are more visual learners, and that's probably why whiteboard animations are so successful, because they work for everyone.

 

They're Captivating

 

Well-made animation videos are a joy to watch. Whether it's the fact that the image is revealed one part at a time or perhaps it's that our attention is drawn to a hand moving across the screen; whatever the attraction, it's true that we love watching whiteboard animation videos, and we don't take our eyes off for one moment because we don't want to miss what happens next. The result is that viewers pay more attention to whiteboard animation videos than they do to any other type of video.

 

They're Enjoyable to Watch

 

It's quite easy to get someone to be receptive to your message with a whiteboard animation video. These videos create a sense of fun, thereby putting the viewer in a good mood and making them more responsive to what you're trying to say. When the viewer is watching images that are more cartoony than corporate and boring, it doesn't feel like work - it feels like fun! And what better way of getting people to relax and enjoy ‘the movie'.

 

They're Memorable

 

Compared to talking head videos, studies of whiteboard animations were found to increase viewers' retention of messages by 15%. Any increase would be impressive, but an increase of 15% is quite extraordinary. Study show that viewers remember what they've seen for much longer, and are more likely to share both the message and the video.

Some history on the Website Design Services Industry

 

Website Designer

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.

 

Web Designer Tools and technologies

 

Web designers use a variety of different tools depending on what part of the production process they are involved in. These tools are updated over time by newer standards and software but the principles behind them remain the same. Web designers use both vector and raster graphics editors to create web-formatted imagery or design prototypes. Technologies used to create websites include W3C standards like HTML and CSS, which can be hand-coded or generated by WYSIWYG editing software. Other tools web designers might use include mark up validators and other testing tools for usability and accessibility to ensure their web sites meet web accessibility guidelines.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

User experience design and interactive design

 

User understanding of the content of a website often depends on user understanding of how the website works. This is part of the user experience design. User experience is related to layout, clear instructions and labeling on a website. How well a user understands how they can interact on a site may also depend on the interactive design of the site. If a user perceives the usefulness of the website, they are more likely to continue using it. Users who are skilled and well versed with website use may find a more distinctive, yet less intuitive or less user-friendly website interface useful nonetheless. However, users with less experience are less likely to see the advantages or usefulness of a less intuitive website interface. This drives the trend for a more universal user experience and ease of access to accommodate as many users as possible regardless of user skill. Much of the user experience design and interactive design are considered in the user interface design.

 

Advanced interactive functions may require plug-ins if not advanced coding language skills. Choosing whether or not to use interactivity that requires plug-ins is a critical decision in user experience design. If the plug-in doesn't come pre-installed with most browsers, there's a risk that the user will have neither the know how or the patience to install a plug-in just to access the content. If the function requires advanced coding language skills, it may be too costly in either time or money to code compared to the amount of enhancement the function will add to the user experience. There's also a risk that advanced interactivity may be incompatible with older browsers or hardware configurations. Publishing a function that doesn't work reliably is potentially worse for the user experience than making no attempt. It depends on the target audience if it's likely to be needed or worth any risks.

 

Page layout

 

Part of the user interface design is affected by the quality of the page layout. For example, a designer may consider whether the site's page layout should remain consistent on different pages when designing the layout. Page pixel width may also be considered vital for aligning objects in the layout design. The most popular fixed-width websites generally have the same set width to match the current most popular browser window, at the current most popular screen resolution, on the current most popular monitor size. Most pages are also center-aligned for concerns of aesthetics on larger screens.

 

Fluid layouts increased in popularity around 2000 as an alternative to HTML-table-based layouts and grid-based design in both page layout design principle and in coding technique, but were very slow to be adopted. This was due to considerations of screen reading devices and varying windows sizes which designers have no control over. Accordingly, a design may be broken down into units (sidebars, content blocks, embedded advertising areas, navigation areas) that are sent to the browser and which will be fitted into the display window by the browser, as best it can. As the browser does recognize the details of the reader's screen (window size, font size relative to window etc.) the browser can make user-specific layout adjustments to fluid layouts, but not fixed-width layouts. Although such a display may often change the relative position of major content units, sidebars may be displaced below body text rather than to the side of it. This is a more flexible display than a hard-coded grid-based layout that doesn't fit the device window. In particular, the relative position of content blocks may change while leaving the content within the block unaffected. This also minimizes the user's need to horizontally scroll the page.

Some history on the Graphic Design Services Industry

 

Graphic Designer

Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, photography and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used synonymously. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. They use typography, visual arts, and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), advertising, web design, communication design, product packaging and signage.

 

Applications

 

From road signs to technical schematics, from interoffice memorandums to reference manuals, graphic design enhances transfer of knowledge and visual messages. Readability and legibility is enhanced by improving the visual presentation and layout of text.

 

Design can also aid in selling a product or idea through effective visual communication. It is applied to products and elements of company identity like logos, colors, packaging, and text. Together these are defined as branding (see also advertising). Branding has increasingly become important in the range of services offered by many graphic designers, alongside corporate identity. Whilst the terms are often used interchangeably, branding is more strictly related to the identifying mark or trade name for a product or service, whereas corporate identity can have a broader meaning relating to the structure and ethos of a company, as well as to the company's external image. Graphic designers will often form part of a team working on corporate identity and branding projects. Other members of that team can include marketing professionals, communications consultants and commercial writers.

 

Textbooks are designed to present subjects such as geography, science, and math. These publications have layouts which illustrate theories and diagrams. A common example of graphics in use to educate is diagrams of human anatomy. Graphic design is also applied to layout and formatting of educational material to make the information more accessible and more readily understandable.

 

Skills

 

A graphic design project may involve the stylization and presentation of existing text and either preexisting imagery or images developed by the graphic designer. Artistic pieces can be incorporated in both traditional and digital form, which involves the use of visual arts, typography, and page layout techniques for publications and marketing. For example, a newspaper story begins with the journalists and photojournalists and then becomes the graphic designer's job to organize the page into a reasonable layout and determine if any other graphic elements should be required. In a magazine article or advertisement, often the graphic designer or art director will commission photographers or illustrators to create original pieces just to be incorporated into the design layout. Or the designer may utilize stock imagery or photography. Contemporary design practice has been extended to the modern computer, for example in the use of WYSIWYG user interfaces, often referred to as interactive design, or multimedia design. Another aspect of graphic design is to have good research skills, analyzing a work of art and simultaneously seeing it in new ways. Graphic Design need skills such as power to convince the audience and selling the design. Communication is a key part in graphic design. The process of graphic design include the "process school" which is an approach to the subject that is concerned with the actual process of communication; it especially highlights the channels and media through which messages are transmitted and by which senders and receivers encode and decode. Semiotic School on the other hand, is message as a construction of signs which through interaction with receivers, produces meaning; communication as an agent. The process school is like the way in which a message is brought out to society.

Some history on the Whiteboard Animation Video Services Industry

 

Whiteboard animation

Whiteboard animation is a process where a creative story and storyboard with pictures is drawn on a whiteboard (or something that resembles a whiteboard) by artists who record themselves in the process of their artwork. It is used in TV and internet advertising to communicate messages in a unique way.

 

Terminology

 

The term whiteboard animation comes from the process of someone drawing on a whiteboard and recording it. The actual effect is a time-lapse, or sometimes stop-motion. Actual animation is rarely used but has been incorporated. Other terms are video scribing, and animated doodling. These video animation styles are now seen in many variations, and have taken a turn into many other animation styles. With the introduction of software to create the whiteboard animations, the process has many different manifestations of varying quality.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

Animation

 

Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and the illusion of change[Note 1] by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation. Animation can be recorded with either analogue media, a flip book, motion picture film, video tape, digital media, including formats with animated GIF, Flash animation and digital video. To display animation, a digital camera, computer, or projector are used along with new technologies that are produced.

 

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second. Computer animation processes generating animated images with the general term computer-generated imagery (CGI). 3D animation uses computer graphics, while 2D animation are used for stylistic, low bandwidth and faster real time renderings.

 

Video editing

 

The term video editing can refer to: The process of manipulating video images. Once the province of expensive machines called video editors, video editing software is now available for personal computers and workstations. Video editing includes cutting segments (trimming), re-sequencing clips, and adding transitions and other Special Effects.

 

Linear video editing, using video tape and is edited in a very linear way. Several video clips from different tapes are recorded to one single tape in the order that they will appear.

 

Non-linear editing system (NLE), This is edited on computers with specialised software. These are non destructive to the video being edited and use programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro and Avid.

 

Offline editing is the process in which raw footage is copied from an original source, without affecting the original film stock or video tape. Once the editing has been completely edited, the original media is then re-assembled in the online editing stage.

 

Online editing is the process of reassembling the edit to full resolution video after an offline edit has been performed and is done in the final stage of a video production.

 

Vision mixing, when working within live television and video production environments. A vision mixer is used to cut live feed coming from several cameras in real time.
