Curated motion graphic video explanation and animated explainer videos that explain, educate, or inform.
Infographics have the potential to engage and visually communicate in a way that normal text can’t. The latest development in visual communication leverages the power and engagement potential of online video with animated infographics using motion graphics software and techniques.
Animated infographic videos are especially well-suited for explaining concepts, ideas, technologies, and issues that are vague or esoteric. Explanatory infographics videos are emerging as a powerful communication format for businesses and organizations.
I’ve been intrigued with online explanatory videos since attending a workshop at VizThink ’08 presented by Lee and Sachi Lefever of Common Craft. Soon thereafter, I stumbled upon an explanatory infographic video created by Xplane, a prominent leader in visual thinking. Their video, “Did You Know 4.0” hooked me on the educational potential of using simple animated graphics and pictograms to explain concepts and trends. Since then, I’ve collected examples of infographic videos in various ways, until finally deciding to create a dedicated website to curate them.
The goal of this site is to serve as a curated destination fo find ideas, inspiration and examples of video infographics – for business leaders, marketers and designers. Launched in July, 2010, I’ve back-dated most of the videos to coincide with their publication date – as close as I can determine that. If you’ve got a favorite infographic video that you don’t see here, it may be that I just haven’t gotten around to posting it yet, as I’ve got a big backlog of videos to include. Nevertheless, feel free to contact me and submit a video if you feel it belongs here.
