Blackboard animation? VideoScribe can do that too

DeepRed55 are a full service digital agency in the UK. Their creative team helps clients with branding, marketing and customer engagement. They've been using VideoScribe to do this since October 2014 - but it was a scribe they made about their own work that caught our eye. Check it out.

We love this Formula 1 themed scribe that DeepRed55 made to showcase their services. The black background is a reminder of how effective the unexpected can be.

Karl Bantleman is DeepRed55’s Internet Marketing Director. Karl told us how VideoScribe helps them meet their clients’ marketing needs as well as their own.

We use them [scribes] to describe the service of our client - in particular those clients that are in industries deemed to be ‘less interesting’ than others. It helps the client maintain their customers’ concentration, which allows them to get their message across.

DeepRed55 also made a scribe about their client 3BM - a mutual organisation that provides support services to schools.

Not many digital agencies have an internal creative team and we wanted to combine our digital abilities with our ability to think creatively and VideoScribe was perfect for that… We use VideoScribes when we pitch for business and the response has always been brilliant.

A big thanks to Karl and hats off to the DeepRed55 team - impressive scribing.
