What makes my videos stand out?

Every video I create for my clients is hand-crafted and bespoke. They are made with care and precision but without the Savile Row price-tag.

No Clipart or Recycled Art

No clip-art or stock art. No re-usable characters, faces, elements or scenery are ever used. Not a single line is created by scribing video software,
as used by the many low-rent video mills that are sadly out there, churning out rather sad looking cookie cutter videos.
Fee-wise I am somewhere in the middle of the field. Quality wise I deliver a very high standard with a unique and recognizable style.

My videos stand up to comparisons to the big production houses, but without the three-month waiting period and the five-digit price tag.

A very high production value with fair flat-rate pricing (no surprises with extra hours or overtime) is my goal.
Right from the start, I can be of assistance with the idea process if you like – in case you aren’t set on a script or story yet.
If you have a finished script, as I work on the storyboard artwork, I might have a few visual suggestions that could fit very well and enhance your written words.

Once a rough script has been approved, I create a rough storyboard/layout of the video, so that we can go over the scenes before any sound is recorded or any ink is spilled on final illustrations.

Needless to say during the entire production, you will be dealing and interacting with me personally, not assistants or members of my team.

Likewise, I guarantee that the final artwork, based on the approved storyboard, will be hand-drawn by me personally.

What art styles are available?

Many different styles can be used in a whiteboard video

Even though the predominant style used in most whiteboard explainer videos is a more loosely sketched black and white art style,
often with a line quality that resembles markers or chalk, the line art could also be very clean and even highly detailed, if you like.

The strongest social media tool: Whiteboard VIdeos

As a matter of fact, any style you see in the various pages of my portfolio (LINK) can be used in your video.

Marsden Art Portfolio:

The video can be cute, funny or also very clean and business like, depending on your message and your target audience.

Animation Style:

All kinds of animation styles are at your disposal.

There is, of course, the traditional “drawing hand” and also the “flat hand” that can slide elements in and out,
move the whole image, and zoom in and out to add more to the artwork as it develops.
Also, the hand can write titles or certain text passages from the voiceover to stress their importance or slide in speech bubbles.

Parts of the artwork can also just appear, fade in or “pop” in with a little wobble and a sound effect.

Complicated or dry material becomes clear and fun



Side note: If you would like me to appear in person and draw something live at an event
or if you would like it to be ME who is filmed while drawing, this can be arranged.



I would love to create illustrations and videos for you.
