Illustrated Workflow of Graph Database Modeling – Explainer Video

In this illustrated explainer video, I was tasked by the client to follow the steps of graph database development from the architect to the database admin to the developers. 

With appealing illustrations that unfold before your eyes, this explainer video showcases the step-by-step process of how each team member contributes and collaborates to create a successful graph database. The animations and illustrations by created by me (artist Ian David Marsden) effectively communicate intricate procedures by utilizing character designs that personify different professions, along with vibrant graphic symbols. This approach results in a clear and visually appealing presentation.

The Power of Custom-Created and hand drawn Explainer Videos: Why They’re Worth the Investment

Explainer videos have become a popular tool for businesses and startups to market their products and ideas in an engaging and informative way. But not all explainer videos are created equal. Cheap productions that use reusable clipart and avatars may seem like a cost-effective option, but investing in custom-created and hand-drawn explainer videos can have numerous benefits for your business.

Custom-created and hand-drawn explainer videos offer an elegant and tailored solution to suit any product or presentation. With the art of illustration, any scenario is possible for a reasonable budget, making it a more cost-effective option than traditional methods such as a photoshoot with models, influencers and moviestars and tons of costumes and props in a fancy studio, or on location on a yacht or a private jet. (Why not just draw all of these elements?)

Custom Whiteboard Videos by Experienced Cartoonist – High Quality and Affordable

YouTube player

As an experienced cartoonist, I create high-quality and affordable videos tailored to your needs. My name is Ian Marsden, and I’ve been creating custom whiteboard videos for clients all over the world for many years. Whether you’re looking to explain a complex concept, introduce a new product or service, or simply entertain your audience, I can help you achieve your goals with a custom whiteboard video.

Hand-drawn drawing videos or Explainer videos (sometimes called Whiteboard Videos) are an excellent tool for businesses looking to convey complex ideas and concepts in a simple and entertaining manner. As a seasoned illustrator, character designer, and cartoonist with over 20 years of experience, I specialize in creating custom-made whiteboard and explainer videos that are engaging and unique.

To kick-start the production process, I start with a detailed briefing where I gain a full understanding of your requirements and objectives for the video. Then, I develop a script and storyboard that outlines the story and visual elements of the video. Once the script and storyboard have been approved, I begin animating and producing the video.

The cost of a custom whiteboard or explainer video varies based on a range of factors, such as the video’s length, illustration style, animation complexity, and number of revisions. Therefore, I always provide a personalized offer for each project that is tailored to your specific requirements.

When it comes to pricing, I prefer to provide a binding flat rate estimate that includes the entire production process, from script and storyboard development to animation and final delivery. This way, my clients know exactly what to expect, and there are no surprises when it comes to hours spent or unexpected costs. I also provide fixed milestones for delivery and deadlines, ensuring that the project stays on track and is completed on time. Whether you need a single Explainer Video or a series of videos, I can provide you with a comprehensive and transparent estimate that meets your specific needs.

My portfolio includes a variety of illustration and drawing styles that I master to ensure that every project is unique and appealing. Whether you need an explainer video to showcase your products or services, or a whiteboard video to explain your business process, I am confident that I can help you create a captivating video that delivers your message effectively.

Absolutely, every Explainer Video that I create is tailor-made to fit the specific needs and goals of my clients. I do not use any pre-made templates, cookie-cutter characters, or generic puppets. Instead, I work closely with my clients to understand their vision, and then create custom illustrations and animations that bring their message to life in a unique and captivating way.

Contact me today for a no-obligation offer, and let’s work together to produce a custom whiteboard or explainer video that engages your audience and strengthens your brand.
