AFFORDABLE WEBSITE & GRAPHIC DESIGN AGENCY
Animated Graphics & Video
Your website content drives your businesses message . . . keep it interesting and never boring. We have over 25 years experience developing technical and non technical creative content (graphics, video, & multimedia) for military and commercial clients.
A motion product built for web delivery will better communicate your story while also attracting attention to your site. The motion object created may be as simple as an animated GIF or as complex as a full video with animated effects and voice over.
Our Navy work involved the development of visual materials depicting the engineering support of new shipboard combat systems. We were successful because our technical background enabled a level of comprehension that provided us with the ability to conceive and produce the required graphics on schedule and within cost.
Much of the work was in the development of interactive DVD’s and other multimedia products that were provided as program briefings to the highest levels of Navy management.
Videos take time to watch – a couple minutes at the very least. They also produce sound. GIFs offer a much more convenient, faster and totally silent way to express something. It’s the perfect combination between image and video. Animated GIF’s are essentially a mini video, with no sound, that can be watched from start to finish in as little as one or two seconds in a simple, auto-looping fashion.
Facebook Cover Videos
When Facebook introduced the capability of replacing static cover photos with dynamic cover videos . . .we jumped at the opportunity to utilize our video experience in exploring this new opportunity.
Cover videos can contain video clips, still images, animations, and of course full audio, all of which will advertise your product more effectively (see example below).
- Video formats: .mov or .mp4
- Dimensions: W = 820 pix H= 312 pix
- Duration: 20 – 90 seconds

Dynamic Cover Video
Cover videos below are linked from YouTube to minimize page loading time. Actual Facebook cover videos do not show black borders top and bottom. Also, at this time Facebook is not allowing cover videos to be played from phones. Instead a selected video frame is used as a still cover image.
See our cover videos at YouTube.
Links to the actual Facebook page are beneath the videos.
Key Frame Animation
We created iBibleMaps.com as a digital media ministry. The key frame animation shown is just one of many from the site.
