Research Interview

I conducted an interview with the primary marketing contact and learned the following insights:

  • Most donors for WFA are in fast aging demographics of baby boomers and post-retirement age

  • WFA wants to better cater to its rising percentage of millennial donors

  • Limited local exposure

  • Lack of social media presence

The Strategy

My strategy is to create a video advertising in motion graphics style that points out important data from the most recent WFA's research with introduction of WFA's visions and missions, and accomplishments.

Why?

According to various studies, displaying a video on landing/homepage increases conversion rate by 80%. In addition, YouTube reports mobile video consumption rises 100% every year. Also, 92% of mobile video consumers share videos with others through various social media platforms, which further spread the message at no cost.

Creative Process

I proceeded to first write a script for the video. Get the script approved, and looked for an audiographer and voice artist. We spent roughly 6 hours in the studio and small revisions to the script were made to make the 2 min timeline.

Design Phase

First I begin with storyboarding and simple vector illustrations in Adobe Illustrator. After I got the storyboard approved, I then began finalizing the illustrations and moving them to After Effects.
