Creating Each Explainer Animation

Kohlitz worked with Ripple Science, a collaboration with the University of Michigan, that was created in order to simplify the management of research participant recruitment and tracking. It was developed to address a critical problem encountered by researchers everywhere: poor recruitment of research volunteers and the lack of affordable tools for efficient participant management. Kohlitz was tasked to create two animations that showcase Ripple’s ability to effectively solve these two problems of participant recruitment and management. Using Ripple Science’s color scheme and design, Kohlitz was able to create two explainer animations that beautifully sync with Ripple’s existing website and branding. And besides looking good for an enjoyable viewing experience, the animations effectively and quickly explain how Ripple Science’s software makes participant management and recruitment a breeze. To convey this message, we used visual analogies (like looking for a lost cat!), motion graphics, animated relatable characters, and simulations of the actual software.
