I need to improve the design of an animated video

Contest Brief

Here’s some details about the project…

I’m working on creating a video series called HairTies. The stories in the series are told using just voice over and pictures. I’ve been working with an animator. Here’s what she’s been able to do so far: [login to view URL] Note that this is just a rough draft, the titles in the beginning are not final.

What we have so far is pretty good, but I think it could look more professional. So I’m looking for someone that can help polish up the design. I would then hand over design files to the animator to animate.

Thoughts on how we can improve the design: I don’t think the design needs to change much from what we currently have. But I would like a designer to consider: if we should add some color somehow to the video and if so where/how. Perhaps maybe the width of the “ribbon” running through the video could be different. Might adding a color or texture to the background make it more visually interesting. I’ve started to play a bit with color and backgrounds in the presentation I’m creating for the project. (See attached). Little things like that might be worth exploring.

I'm ideally looking for a graphic designer who also knows how to animate. This way he/she can take animation into consideration as he/she is working on the design.

Employer Feedback

“Daniel was a pleasure to work with even though I had technical difficulty using Freelancer.com. He was timely, friendly and fast. He turned around the project in two days. I definitely recommend him to others.”

    Hi, I agree with already mentioned here and like to add: What's the aim? What's it for? Audience and target? I think it looks alright as a start. Nice and simple. *smile*

    I think first of all you should provide us a project file of animation which you have at this moment and then we will be able to improve it (Hope it's After Effects project file).

      I've uploaded some photographs and the font used for the title in the example. I'm not looking for more animation at this point. I'm just looking to see if someone can come up with a better design (look and feel) of the video. Something that looks more professional. One of the last animated videos that we created was this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTpH9HF5pgE. This example has a completely different look and feel but it has a very professional feel to it. I hope that makes sense.

    Hello.I do not understand what to write in the application for participation in the contest to select me performer. You do not ask to do animation. You ask for advice.
