animation & motion graphics plan:

different types of looks


the "James May" Look

The motion graphics in James May's "Things You Need to Know" series have a distinctive style that is designed to enhance the educational content of the show. Some common impressions that the motion graphics may convey to viewers include:

  1. Clarity: The graphics are designed to provide clear and concise explanations of complex concepts, which can create a sense of understanding and comprehension in the viewer.

  2. Simplicity: The graphics often use simple, minimalist designs and animations, which can create a sense of elegance and ease of use in the viewer.

  3. Playfulness: The graphics sometimes use whimsical designs and animations, such as animated characters and objects, which can create a sense of fun and lightheartedness in the viewer.
