Motion Graphics Company Hiring Guide

What is a motion graphics company?

A motion graphics company primarily creates animated visual content for digital platforms. Unlike traditional video production companies that focus on live-action filming, motion graphics companies use computer-generated imagery (CGI), animation techniques, and graphic design to convey messages, tell stories, or explain complex concepts in a visually engaging manner. 

In today's visually driven digital landscape, brands must captivate audiences through improved brand identity presentation. Motion graphics companies meet these challenges with creative storytelling, technical expertise, and collaborative approaches to produce memorable visual experiences that resonate with different target markets. 

Various industries benefit from motion graphics, such as brand messaging, communication, education, entertainment, and product visualization. Some of the business verticals that motion graphics studios typically serve are as follows: 

  • Advertising and marketing: Using motion graphics for campaigns, commercials, and promotional materials of products and services. With the global animation and VFX market size projected to reach $72.8 billion by 2032, companies in this sector should invest more in motion pictures and visual content to stand out in the crowded digital spaces. As brands compete for consumer attention, motion graphics offer an effective means of storytelling and product promotion, driving the demand for creative animation solutions within the advertising and marketing industry. 
  • Film and television: Playing a significant role in film title sequences, visual effects, and television show intros and outros. The video streaming app industry revenue will reach $115 billion by 2026. With the rise of streaming services and the demand for high-quality content, motion graphics studios face the challenge of enhancing viewing experiences on various screens and platforms. 
  • Entertainment: Video games, amusement parks, concerts, and live events for visual storytelling and immersive experiences. The global video game market's compound annual growth rate (CAGR)  is 12.9% between 2020 and 2027. This suggests that the demand for immersive gaming experiences continues to grow. Motion graphics contribute to storytelling, character design, visual effects, and user interface (UI) elements in video games for enhanced gameplay and engagement. As the gaming industry continues to expand, motion graphics studios play a vital role in creating captivating visuals that improve the overall gaming experience for players worldwide. 

Other industries that benefit significantly from motion graphics include: 

  • Education and eLearning: Instructional or academic video content, online courses, and eLearning platforms to make complex subjects more accessible 
  • Corporate and business: Employing corporate presentations, training videos, and internal communications to convey information in a dynamic or even interactive manner 
  • Architecture and real estate: Envisioning architectural designs, showcasing properties, and creating virtual tours 
  • Healthcare: Medical animations, patient education materials, and pharmaceutical presentations to explain medical procedures and concepts 
  • Nonprofits, advocacy groups, and other cause-based organizations: Raising awareness and promoting social causes 
  • Event management: Leveraging motion graphics for event branding, stage design, and visual displays at conferences, trade shows, and exhibitions 
  • Broadcasting and journalism: News broadcasts, documentaries, and online journalism for data visualization, motivational storytelling, and visual enhancements 

What do motion graphics studios do?

Motion graphics studios create animated visual ads, films, television shows, video games, websites, and social media. 

Here are the key tasks and services a motion graphics studio provides: 

  • Animation: Building animated sequences using software tools like Adobe After Effects, Autodesk Maya, or Cinema 4D. These animations can range from simple logo animations to complex character animations. 
  • 3D modeling and rendering: Creating three-dimensional models, textures, and animations 
  • Visual effects (VFX): Handling VFX work that includes compositing, green screen keying, particle effects, and digital matte painting. Motion graphics studios integrate CGI into live-action footage to seamlessly blend visual effects. 
  • Graphic design: Producing graphics, illustrations, and typography for different media. This includes creating logos, title sequences, lower thirds, and other graphical elements used in videos. 
  • Storyboarding: Developing storyboards to plan the sequence of shots and transitions helps showcase the intended final product and ensures the motion graphics studio presents an accurate client vision. 
  • Motion tracking: Techniques to integrate graphics or visual effects into moving objects in live-action footage. It can involve tracking camera movements or the motion of specific objects or characters within a scene. 
  • Interactive media: Creating interactive experiences for websites, mobile apps, and other digital platforms. It can be interactive infographics, user interfaces, and augmented reality (AR) applications. 
  • Audio production: Providing sound design, music composition, voice-over recording, audio editing, and other audio production services to strengthen the impact of animated content 

FEVR collaborated with Dior to produce a 45-second mixed media video highlighting the summer theme of La Dolce Vita across its perfume, makeup, and skincare product lines. The video aimed to evoke the vibrant lifestyle of Rome through playful twists on iconic elements of the city. Challenges included accurately capturing the brand's desired universe and conveying a pop and playful atmosphere while incorporating specific visual elements. 

FEVR used mixed media animation to address these challenges, blending real photos, videos, illustrations, and magazine cutouts with graphics and effects. This approach developed a multimedia spectacle that fascinated and intrigued viewers, aligning with the brand's objectives. The company chose to use mixed media animation because of its ability to captivate audiences with striking visual appeal, convey complex narratives, and its versatility and flexibility. The resulting video, adapted for various formats including vertical and square, was widely shared on Dior's marketing platforms, particularly on social media. Collage animations effectively engaged viewers on platforms like Instagram and Facebook, creating strong impressions in Stories, Reels, and advertisements. 

How much do motion graphic projects cost? 

The cost of motion graphic projects can vary depending on several factors. Hiring a motion graphics company ranges from $2,000 to $5,000. However, if you're looking at pricing per minute, it's more nuanced: 

  • A 30-second motion graphics video usually costs between $1,500 to $2,000, depending on the style and the number of revisions. 
  • Prices for a 60-second (1-minute) motion graphics video without 3D elements or characters generally range from $2,000 to $3,500. Adding 3D elements or characters can increase the price to around $4,500. 

Several factors influence these costs: 

  • Video style: While creating assets for motion graphics might be less time-consuming than 3D assets, adding 3D elements can make the video more engaging and may require more time and resources. 
  • Market credibility: Established professional studios charge more due to their reputation and track record. However, smaller studios may offer competitive rates, so reviewing their portfolios is essential before deciding. 
  • Runtime: Shorter videos may be more affordable, but you can achieve excellent results even with modest budgets. 
  • Difficulty level: Projects with higher complexity generally cost more. Balancing the difficulty level with your budget is essential to ensure you get the best value for your investment. 

The top 50 motion graphics studios on DesignRush charge an average of $105 per hour. 

Why should I hire a motion graphics studio?

Hiring a motion graphics studio can bring several advantages to your project, as follows: 

  • Professional quality: Motion graphics studios have experienced professionals with specialized skills in using advanced tools to produce high-quality work that aligns with your vision 
  • Creative expertise: These studios often have a team of creatives who bring fresh ideas and perspectives to your project. They can help brainstorm concepts, develop storyboards, and execute your vision in a visually engaging way. 
  • Visual branding: They ensure the motion graphics align with your brand identity. They use consistent color palettes, typography, and other design elements to reinforce brand recognition. 
  • Technical skills: Motion graphics involve complex software and techniques. Studios employ skilled animators proficient in using software like Adobe After Effects, Cinema 4D, or Blender. They can create intricate animations, visual effects, and motion designs that may be beyond the capabilities of an in-house team. 
  • Time efficiency: Outsourcing your motion graphics project to a studio can save you time and resources. Instead of learning new software and techniques, you can focus on your core business activities while the studio handles the animation work. 
  • Scalability: Motion graphics studios can scale up or down their resources based on your project requirements. Whether you need a simple explainer video or a complex animation sequence, they can allocate the necessary workforce and resources to meet your needs. 
  • Reliability and collaborative approach: By hiring a reputable motion graphics studio, you can expect professionalism and reliability throughout the project lifecycle. They adhere to deadlines, communicate effectively, and ensure the final deliverables meet your expectations. 

Video will account for 91% of all internet traffic by 2025. This further emphasizes the significance of investing in professional motion graphics studios and capitalizing on the expanding market opportunities.

Through effective project management and collaboration, Garbanzo ensured timely delivery without compromising quality.

How do I choose the best motion graphics company for my business? 

Choosing the best motion graphics company for your business involves several steps to ensure you find an agency partner that aligns with your needs, budget, and vision. Here's a step-by-step guide: 

  1. Define your goals, budget, and timeline: Clearly outline what you want to achieve with your motion graphics project. This will help you communicate effectively with prospective companies. Be sure to be upfront about your budget and timeline expectations. A reputable company will provide a detailed quote that outlines all costs involved and a realistic timeline for completing a project. 
  2. Research: Look for motion graphics companies online and ask for recommendations from industry peers. 
  3. Review portfolios: Examine their portfolios to gauge their style, creativity, and work quality. Pay attention to whether their previous projects align with your vision and goals. 
  4. Read client reviews: Look up each company's track record and client satisfaction by reviewing its online testimonials. Hearing from others who have worked with the company can provide valuable insights into its strengths and weaknesses. 
  5. Check experience: Look for companies with experience in creating motion graphics for businesses like yours. They should deeply understand your industry and target audience, which will help them create compelling and effective content. 
  6. Shortlist: Build a list of up to five potential agency partners. 
  7. Send RFPs and arrange interviews: Submit a request for proposal (RFP) to the shortlisted candidates and schedule them for interviews. 
  8. Assess technical skills: Ensure the company has the technical expertise to deliver high-quality motion graphics. This includes proficiency in animation software, video editing, motion design principles, and special effects if needed. 
  9. Ask about the production process: Inquire about the company's production process to understand how it works and how much involvement it expects from you. Ensure it follows a structured workflow that includes concept development, storyboarding, animation, and revisions. 
  10. Check for customization: Avoid companies that use template-based approaches or offer one-size-fits-all solutions. For maximum impact, you should receive tailored motion graphics according to your brand and message. 
  11. Seek transparency and accountability: Choose a company that is accountable for delivering what it promised and is open to feedback and revisions. 
  12. Assess and decide: Evaluate each candidate based on their proposals and interviews. Decide and reach an agreement.

What are the key success metrics in motion graphics designs? 

These are the key success metrics often used to evaluate the effectiveness of motion graphics designs: 

  • Engagement: Measures audience interaction and interest in the motion graphics content. View duration, click-through rates (CTR), if applicable, and social media shares can provide insights into audience engagement. 
  • Retention: Indicates how well the motion graphics content keeps viewers' attention over time. Watch time and bounce rate can help assess retention levels. 
  • Brand awareness: Motion graphics designs can increase brand awareness by effectively communicating key brand messages and values. Brand mentions, social media mentions, and direct traffic to the brand's website indicate increased brand awareness. 
  • Message clarity: One of motion graphics design's primary goals is effectively communicating a message or a narrative. Metrics related to message clarity include completion rates (for videos), comprehension surveys, and feedback from viewers. 
  • Conversion rates: For motion graphics content that drives specific actions, such as product purchases or signups, conversion metrics are crucial. These can include conversion rates, CTR on call-to-action (CTA) elements, and, ultimately, the profits generated. 
  • Audience feedback: Qualitative feedback from viewers can include comments, reviews, and surveys aimed at understanding their perceptions and preferences. 
  • Production efficiency: In addition to audience-focused metrics, it's important to consider metrics related to the production process itself. These can include project timelines, production costs, and resource utilization, all of which contribute to motion graphics projects' overall success and ROI. 
  • Social media engagement: If motion graphics are shared on social media platforms, metrics such as likes, comments, shares, and overall engagement rates can provide insights into audience reception and interest. 
  • Brand recall: Assessing how well viewers remember the brand or message conveyed in the motion graphics can be a crucial metric. Surveys or quizzes testing brand recall among viewers can help measure this. 
  • Accessibility: Ensuring that motion graphics designs are accessible to all audiences, including those with disabilities, is important. Metrics related to accessibility compliance, such as adherence to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards, can be tracked to ensure inclusivity. 
  • A/B testing results: Conducting A/B tests with variations of motion graphics content can help identify which designs perform best in achieving the desired goals. Metrics comparing the performance of different variations, such as conversion rates or engagement levels, can guide design optimization.
