Kinetic Conversation Promo

Kinetic typography continues to turn heads and this project takes it one step further, by animating punctuation, too!

It’s essentially an explainer video, one person is asking questions about the product or service and another is providing answers.

TechType Promo

If you need to glitch things up then this typographic template offers the digital distortion you’re looking for!

Sports Movie Trailer and Titles

Presented as sports titles this project actually has many creative uses. The brush stroke effects can be colored differently, and the typeface changed, to suit almost any theme. There are ready made sequences for both title sequence and movie trailer.

Great for movie title sequences but could also be used to carry artistic messages for chapter screens or bumpers.

We love the artistic paint textures behind the text

Metro Business Presentation

This one’s a must have for anyone creating business presentations. Though it looks very technology oriented at first (like a Windows Metro interface) it’s easy to imagine this project working well for all manner of product, service and business types – from fashion promos to photo galleries.

This template does a fantastic job of breaking down your promotion blurb into small, manageable info snippets, drip-feeding your message to the viewer.

We love that all the panels come together into a completed structure at the end
