Here’s what our clients have to say
“I have worked with Explanimate for over 2 years and there is a reason I keep going back. Dave is fantastic to work with really takes the time to understand our needs. Once the Explanimate team gets to work they always find a way to create engaging learning despite the fact that the topics are often quite dry or challenging. However what really sets Explanimate aside is their responsiveness, flexibility and ability to deliver on time and budget, every time. Keep up the great work Explanimate!”
– Learning Program Manager
We have been working with Explanimate! for close to 1 year. We engaged them to help us produce some short animated videos for a number of online training courses. We have been delighted with the quality of work and their ability to visualise technical concepts in a fun and engaging way. Dave and his team are very open to ideas, but also work well with ambiguity. Explanimate! has helped us transform our digital marketing efforts so that we can better reach and engage with our stakeholders. We look forward to continuing to work with Explanimate! in the future and they come with our highest recommendation.
“I tried like 5 providers and these guys are the best. Recommended.”
“The team at Explanimate are nothing short of amazing! No matter what we throw at them, they’re always professional, deliver work on time, and consistently to a very high standard.”
“We’ve worked with the team at Explanimate for around two years now, and we’ve found their level of service to be excellent. As we are a not-for-profit in the mental health and disability sector, it’s important to explain our services in a simple, clear, and engaging way. The animation explainer videos and TVCs that Explanimate have produced for us have done just that. The team have bought our ideas to life and added their own creative flair, whilst being flexible and fun to work with!”
“I have collaborated with Explanimate! to produce a number of engaging videos for Telstra. Working in an organisation that is currently going through its largest digital transformation to date, explaining new technical concepts to a large variety of audiences in a simple and effective way can be a complex process. Explanimate (Ipermedia) has consistently delivered content that can engage and communicate complex concepts effectively. Dave and the team at Explanimate! combine creativity, knowledge and passion to deliver services on time and on budget – most importantly they think outside the box. In addition to this, being nimble has meant that they can continuously manoeuvre and adapt to changes based on the needs of our business. If delivering content that is unique and cost effective is important to you I’d recommend you work with them.”
“David and the team at Explanimate are fantastic collaborators, creatives and communicators. We’ve worked with them to produce animated explainers about the features and benefits of our new school assessment products. Each time they have nailed the brief, producing videos that consistently inspire “aha!” moments of understanding in prospective customers. We enjoy working with the team and trust them to elevate our communications and let our products shine.”
“Explanimate have been really amazing to work with over the last two animation projects. We are always astounded by the quality of their work and they have done it with a smile on their face. Although we are from the west coast of Australia this has not hindered the communication and engagement that we have had from the team. Thank you for the great work and I look forward to continuing to create new and engaging pieces together! Highly recommended!”
“ Explanimate have done an amazing job for us. They studied our brief and took the time to fully understand our objectives and project outcomes and offered suggestions on how to improve on our own concept before they began creating. ”
“Great quality work, flexible with changes, will be working with them again.”
As new customers of Explanimate! we have found the whole process timely and super easy! Truck Assist is a heavy transport insurance and roadside assistance company, therefore, we need to explain fairly complex product offerings in the most simplistic way possible for busy people. Explanimate has been the perfect partner to help us create an easy to follow and understand product spec video. The team would also go above and beyond to make sure the final product was exactly where we needed it to be!
“I highly recommend the Explanimate team. I contacted them when I was in a really tight spot and needed a work project turned around in a hurry. Dave got back to me quickly and immediately talked me through what was possible in the timeframe – the end result was truly exceptional despite the time pressure. Dave couldn’t have been easier to work with – he was highly communicative, kept me updated, provided a really creative solution and stayed within my budget. I would use this team again in a heartbeat!”
“Excellent service! Exceptionally happy with the videos produced. Very responsive and professional from initial contact, receiving a quote, briefing, planning, design all the way through to production. I highly recommend Explanimate!”
“ At Wyndham we were looking for a new way of creating an engaging video to explain our super complex product. We came across Explanimate! through significant research. The videos they created for us had a strong story line with simple but engaging look and feel. Most importantly, they are very responsive with a can-do attitude. I’d recommend their service to everyone. ”
I have worked with the team from Explanimate several times in the last few years to produce video media that tells a simple, compelling story without making the viewer feel dumb or threatened. They have a knack for visualising the human emotions experienced by ordinary people living with everyday problems. Clever, clear and compelling. Fun to work with too.
“It was a pleasure working with Explanimate on a suite of illustrated animated explainer videos. They turned things around very quickly and were accommodating of our budgets. Good problem solvers, solutions-oriented and very responsive. Highly recommend.”
“Went above and beyond to deliver an amazing result we were happy with. Highly recommend.”
“Our agency engaged Explanimate to create a 3-minute animated explainer video for a new client of ours. From the moment I submitted our online enquiry, we received the warmest and most responsive customer service from Travis, Dave and the Explanimate team. They worked in with our specific requirements and provided guidance and expertise along the way to ensure all stakeholders were thrilled with the final result. We will certainly be directing all animation and explainer video work to the Explanimate team moving forward – such clever and easy suppliers to work with!”
“We engaged Explanimate to create an explainer video for our organisation with a tight timeframe for completion. Working with Dave and his team was a delight. They were very flexible and responsive to our needs, and created a high quality product that has been really well received by staff. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Thanks for a professional and friendly experience! :o)”
“The Griffith University marketing team have worked with Dave and the team at Explanimate over the past three years to produce everything from videos communicating complex strategic plans and internal staff marketing pieces to student recruitment videos covering a wide range of study areas and activities.
Explanimate are experts at taking our general ideas, breaking them down into simple concepts and turning them into engaging pieces of marketing collateral.”
“ The work that Explanimate does for us is of the highest quality, they understand the importance of getting the job done right. Explanimate understand our needs vary depending on the audience we are attempting to capture. Explanimate understand the high standards that our company has and are most efficient in delivering well within time limits. I would highly recommend working with them.”
“The Team at Explanimate are fantastic to work with. The work was completed in a very timely manner and the staff were extremely professional. The execution of our vision by the Team at Explanimate was awesome, would happily recommend and use them again.”
“Dave and Travis were fantastic to work with. We came across their work looking for a video to explain a complicated and abstract process (end of year tax workflow) in a simple, but comprehensive style. They built a solid understanding of the process and took feedback well, even when we needed to get across highly technical parts of the product. The end result was something we’re proud to showcase, filled with evergreen content that will last into the future. Looking forward to working with the team again!”
“Dave and his team were great to work with. Professional, innovative, collaborative and efficient.”
The pleasure was all ours…
