It was considered the ninth planet in our solar system until 2006, when it was demoted to a dwarf planet by the International Astronomical Union. A dwarf planet is smaller than the other planets, it orbits the sun, it’s large enough that its gravity pulls its shape into a ball, but too small to clear other objects out of its path.

Why you need infographics http://www.karbelmultimedia.com/2017/07/content-marketing-solutions-infographics/ http://www.karbelmultimedia.com/2017/07/content-marketing-solutions-infographics/#respond Thu, 13 Jul 2017 15:00:10 +0000 http://www.karbelmultimedia.com/?p=7349 KarBel

Engage, educate and grow your audience

Content marketing focuses on creating and sharing visual materials that communicate your message. These visuals can be shared to a wider audience online, social media, presentations, print materials and across other media platforms. This is valuable when trying to increase engagement and build interest in your services or product. Below are a few visual solutions that will help.

Infographics

Infographics are visual stories that simplify complex subjects in a clear and interesting way so the average reader can easily understand. Diagrams, maps, charts, etc., are useful tools to help visualize your message. They can simplified even more to focus on one stat or fact and used on social media.

Motion graphics

Motion graphics, animations and videos afford other avenues to reach a broader audience. These can be shared on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, etc. as well as other social media platforms. They can also be used in presentations, online and broadcast.

Data visualizations

Statistics most often lead to a data visualization, whether that is a data map, pie chart, bar graph, fever line or pictogram. Data can be displayed in many ways to show a visual impact and comparison.

Interactives

Interactives are a great way to bring your audience an engaging and richer online experience. Users can dig deeper into data, maps, charts, diagrams, process graphics, etc., offering users more control over information they choose to explore.

To see more examples of infographics and some of our other design work, please check out our portfolio. Do not hesitate to contact us for help on your next project.
Thanks!

Congratulations Belinda on your MFA!

Belinda Ivey of KarBel Multimedia completed her Master in Fine Arts degree in Motion Media Design from the Savannah College of Art and Design. The degree is the result of more than 5 years of late nights and hard work.

Master’s Thesis

While pursuing her Master’s, Belinda wrote a thesis on “The Role of Explanatory Motion News Graphics in Online Journalism.” The thesis explores how motion news graphics, a relatively new story-telling video format for news organizations, can boost readership in today’s fast-paced online news climate.

SCAD 2017 Commencement

The commencement was was held in the Savannah Civic Center in downtown Savannah. The stage was decorated with a multitude of lightbulb balloons, and there were several jumbo screens (one behind the stage and one above the graduates).
There were various inspirational speakers honoring the class of graduates, including SCAD co-founder and President Paula Wallace, and distinguished speaker and actor, John Malkovich.

The graduation concluded with a fantastic celebration with acrobats, dancers, a drumline, balloons, confetti, and a surprise musical performance by Andra Day singing her hit single “Rise Up.”

Thank you!

Big thanks to all of the family and friends for the support and encouragement through her journey to get this Master’s degree. It has been a fun ride, but it’s only the beginning! Now comes the fun part of continuing to learn and explore motion graphics and its impact on visual communication.

Motion graphic workshop at SND CLT 2017 is a wrap!

I, along with Terence Oliver — a motion graphics professor at the University of North Carolina — wrapped up our rocket-themed motion graphics workshop this past Friday, April 21 at the Society of News Design annual workshop in Charlotte, N.C. We had a full session with more than 30 attendees!

Astronaut fuel!

To go along with our rocket-themed workshop, we provided a little “astronaut fuel” — a goodie bag with Pop Rocks candy and a toy rocket — for our attendees as an appreciation for coming to the workshop. Attendees were grouped by the color of their Pop Rocks candy later on in the hands-on part of the session.

Inspiration and the road to motion graphics

We split our 90-minute workshop into two parts. The first part was a presentation that included an introduction to motion graphics, their popularity and how they can increase the reach of visual stories online. We also shared our own personal journeys, and how we each transitioned with motion graphics from the newsroom to entrepreneurship and teaching. We each shared the first video that inspired each of our journeys. My inspiration was the end credits from “The Other Guys” movie (video below) that was a brilliant motion graphic explaining the 2008 banking crisis and relevant statistics with large banks and the NYPD pension plan. I was hooked with the motion graphics’ cool animated stats and simple animated visuals. A short time later, I produced my very first motion graphic explaining Florida’s foreclosure process based on the design of the accompanying print infographic I created for a business enterprise story.

Lets get hands-on

The second part sorted the attendees into 4 collaborative teams to storyboard a motion graphic based on a script Terence provided from an older project. Using sticky notes, each team brainstormed ideas and drew out their storyboards for a simple motion graphic commercial. Each group then presented their ideas at the end of the session.

Thank you!

I would like to thank everyone that came to the workshop. You made the session great and we hope you left inspired and ready to create amazing animations. I always enjoy meeting creative people and getting inspired by their thoughts and ideas. We hope everyone had as much fun as we did.

Special thanks to Terence Oliver for being a great partner and amazing mentor. And a big shout-out to Adobe for providing some sweet swag for our attendees. I made sure to get the T-shirts, cups and frisbee for my own family.

I look forward to continuing these motion graphic workshops in the future. Hope to see you at the next one!
