The Whiteboard Animation Business

Case Study - The Whiteboard Animation Business

Business Background and Introduction

Firstly, I want to point out that this is currently a part-time business venture of my own that I have created to work along side my current part-time PAYE job, so that if and when the need or time arises, I can return back to full-time sole-trader existance. (Think of it as a life’s back-up plan, but which is real fun to work on it’s short and sweet video projects).

Skills, Expertise and Talents Utilised

I wanted something that was fun, bright, very unique, noticeable and so a vibrant colour and a hand-drawn font was used to capture the essance of what a Whiteboard Animation Video is all about.
