If you are in the market for animated explainer videos uk or are in the process of creating one, then getting the right font, or even creating your own font is a vital step in keeping your video engaging.
After downloading all kinds of free fonts over the years, and using them in videoscribe to create our whiteboard explainer animations, I finally decided it was time to try and make my own font.
I searched the Internet and quickly found a free online service.
By downloading a simple template from www.myscriptfont.com I was able to quickly and easily create my own handwritten font that works great in videoscribe and adobe illustrator.
I did a quick test in videoscribe and it worked really well – check it out!
(The whole effect seems to have come out much better than I had hoped for, because I am quite a messy writer, proven by the fact that on a couple of my most recent whiteboard animations I had to rewrite some of my text and labels so that it was legible!)
NOT all animated explainer videos uk, are created equally though!
And while one video style may yield earth shattering results for one business, it may be a complete dud for your business. If different types of styles have been swirling around your head and have left you confused then you may need to do some basic research to get the right look for your business.
This is one of my new favourite fonts! Luckily some of my clients prefer my hand written font, but I love the Denne sketchy font. Here is another fantastic font that you can use in a videoscribe or explainer videos uk, I love it.
The primary key to an effective video is to select the video style that best fits your business marketing objectives and target audience.
The first thing to realize is that every font has its own pros and cons. Some are more straightforward, some are more creative, and some are more youthful. In this way, some styles are more appropriate for different industries than others. The pros of whiteboard videos is that they are very to the point, and communicate information in a simple and effective way. The font or fonts used in the video can make or break it. You will need to consider who your target audience is and what they will feel most at home reading. A whiteboard animation can be highly engaging and spark curiosity in viewers, and the font you choose is an integral part of the video. They can even be inverted to look like a blackboard video and this makes the font really stand out nicely.
Although these videos are limited in the amount of colour and animation they contain, by using carefully selected coloured fonts can really improve your video, and make it stand out . If you’re looking to convey your information in a clear and effective way you can look read up on the history of sketch notes or visual note taking. I call them the ‘grandfather’ of animated explainer videos uk, and a good sketch note had a successful blend of cool looking fonts and nice cartoons or doodles.
