Graphic Design


Our in-house design team created a range of digital assets, including motion graphics and interactive elements. This allowed users to disseminate information and encouraged sharing among the target audience. Due to the young, digitally-native audience, we knew that sharing across social media was key to the campaign’s success.

Motion Graphics


We developed a motion graphic video for Ulster University. This allowed us to harness the power of storytelling for the ‘Our Census’ campaign. 

The video served as a dynamic and engaging medium to convey the importance of the Census and its impact on the lives of young people in Northern Ireland.

With seamlessly blended visuals, animated elements and concise messaging, we delivered a powerful narrative on the Census. These were carefully crafted to resonate with the younger demographic, ensuring that the video captured their imagination appropriately.

Moreover, the motion graphic video incorporated a compelling narrative arc, taking the viewers on a journey that highlighted the value of accurate and comprehensive data. With this, we fostered a sense of empowerment among the viewers, inspiring them to recognise their role in contributing to accurate data collection.
