    I loved working with Explainly. They were professional, very communicative, and the quality of their work surpassed my expectations. I would recommend them to anyone looking for high-end animation design and explainer videos. Well done Explainly!

    The entirely Explainly team was fabulous to work with on the first of what we hope will be a series of marketing videos. We had a challenging story to tell in a condensed timeframe, and Explainly made the process easy. The team was very patient as we worked to balance feedback from multiple sources; was *super* responsive to our questions; provided sound guidance in a new territory for our company; and made the collaboration process a breeze with the digital tools they use to share assets/drafts

    Working with the Explainly team was a seamless process from start to finish. The team were highly communicative, patient and talented and produced a final product video that truly exceeded expectations. What I loved most is that the team really took the time to understand our product and vision and made it come to life in way that was engaging, creative and of high quality. I would highly recommend working with the Explainly team - couldn't fault them.

    I could not have asked for a more pleasant interaction as what was offered by Explainly. My manufacturing company needed two videos created explaining a pretty technical and novel concept to our customers (Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization Technology to be specific). They tackled this daunting subject with grace and positivity. I loved how easy it was to communicate and offer feedback using Trello boards. It was wonderful to be able to share assets so easily.

    Explainly is a great company to work with. I have a design project and would like to have a 3D animation video to explain what it is. The explainly team are extremely professional and easy to work with. The communication is the key of cooperation, and they made it really easy. I am really happy how the video turned out at the end. Definitely recommended.

    I'm the CEO of a mental health and wellness company. We hired Explainly to create our key explainer videos to describe our product, reveal the brand and connect with viewers. We signed our production agreement and talked with Explainly about what we were looking for and spent a bunch of creative time with them. I highly recommend working with this firm. They have great creative talent and genuinely care about the work they do.
