Motion Graphics sounds like a seemingly new concept but, in actuality, have been relevant since the 1800s cinematography. What started as a way to include credits and title sequences in films has grown into an effective marketing strategy. In essence, motion graphics is the combination of movement and imagery to convey a clear message, promote a product, or educate a group of people. For example, animated charts and gifts are considered motion graphics. These examples can be vital for companies to use to help bolster their brand or increase awareness of their services. Plus, motion graphics are relatively cost-effective to create and incredibly easy to distribute amongst the public, so they are highly successful in spreading information.
