Information for the city of Tampa

"

Service, retail, finance, insurance, shipping by air and sea, national defense, professional sports, tourism, and real estate all play a vital role in the area's economy. Hillsborough County alone has an estimated 740,000 employees, a figure which is projected to increase to 922,000 by 2015. Many corporations, such as large banks and telecommunications companies, maintain regional offices in Tampa. Tampa Convention Center, built at the site of Fort BrookeSeveral Fortune 1000 companies are headquartered in the metropolitan area, including .MacDill Air Force Base also remains a major employer as the parent installation for over 15,000 active uniformed military, Department of Defense (DoD) civil service and DoD contractor personnel in the Tampa Bay area. A significant majority of the civil service and contractor personnel are, in fact, themselves retired career military personnel. In addition to the 6th Air Mobility Wing, which is ""host wing"" for the base, MacDill is also home to Headquarters, United States Central Command (USCENTCOM), Headquarters, United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), the 927th Air Refueling Wing, Headquarters, United States Marine Forces Central Command (USMARCENT), Headquarters, United States Special Operations Command Central (USSOCCENT), and numerous other military activities of the active and reserve components of the armed forces.Downtown Tampa is undergoing significant development and redevelopment in line with a general national trend toward urban residential development.

 

The Tampa Downtown Partnership notes development proceeding on 20 residential, hotel, and mixed use projects as of April 2007. Many of the new downtown developments are nearing completion in the midst of a housing market slump, which has caused numerous projects to be delayed or revamped, and some of the 20 projects TDP lists have not broken ground and are being refinanced. Nonetheless several developments are nearing completion, which city leaders hope will make downtown into a 24 hour neighborhood instead of 9 to 5 business district. As it stands, Tampa residents face a decline in rent which has decreased an average of 2% next year. Nationally rent has decreased 4%. The Tampa Business Journal found Tampa to be the number two city for real estate investment in 2014.Tampa's port is now the seventh largest in the nation and Florida's largest tonnage port, handling nearly half of all seaborne commerce that passes through the state. Tampa currently ranks second in the state behind Miami in terms of cruise ship travel. T.MacDill Air Force Base[edit]Main article: MacDill Air Force Base A KC 135R stationed at MacDill flying over Tampa Bay.MacDill Air Force Base, located in south Tampa, was constructed as MacDill Field just prior to World War II. During the 1950s and 1960s, it was a Strategic Air Command base for B 47 and B 52 bombers. In the 1960s, it transitioned to a Tactical Air Command installation for F 4 Phantom II fighters, followed by F 16s in the 1980s.

 

It is currently an Air Mobility Command installation, home to the 6th Air Mobility Wing, and includes both the 310th Airlift Squadron, flying the C 37, and the 91st Air Refueling Squadron, flying the KC 135. MacDill AFB is also home to the headquarters for two of the U.S. military's joint warfighting commands: Headquarters, United States Central Command (CENTCOM), and Headquarters, United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM). Both commands are independent from one another and each is commanded by a respective 4 star general or admiral.The MacDill AFB flight line was temporarily closed and the 56th Fighter Wing transferred to Luke AFB, Arizona following the 1991 round of base closings under the Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC) discussions; at the time, the base was used for F 16 fighter training and operations and increasing level of civilian air traffic in the Tampa Bay area was considered detrimental to training.

 

The noise produced by the fighter aircraft was also considered inappropriate in a densely populated area. However, despite committee recommendations, the base remained open to house and support CENTCOM and SOCOM under the cognizance of the newly activated 6th Air Base Wing. With the disestablishment of Tactical Air Command a few months later, claimancy for MacDill passed to the newly created Air Combat Command.The MacDill flight line was initially reopened in 1992 to temporarily support F 16 aircraft from the 31st Fighter Wing and the Air Force Reserve's 482d Fighter Wing, following the destruction of their home station, Homestead AFB, Florida, in the wake of Hurricane Andrew. In 1993 the MacDill flightline was permanently reopened for NOAA WP 3D ""hurricane hunter"" operations, which had relocated from Miami International Airport.In 1996, the 91st Air Refueling Squadron moved to MacDill from Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, the 6th Air Base Wing was renamed the 6th Air Refueling Wing. It was renamed the 6th Air Mobility Wing after the 310th Airlift Squadron was activated on the base and the installation officially came under the Air Mobility Command.Approximately 14,000 people work at MacDill Air Force Base, with a significant number of military personnel and their families living on base in military housing, while remaining servicemembers and military families live off base in the Tampa Bay area.

 

MacDill AFB is a significant contributor to Tampa's economy and the city is very supportive of the military community. In 2001 and 2003, the Tampa Bay area was awarded the Abilene Trophy, which annually honors the most supportive Air Force city in Air Mobility Command.MacDill also hosts an annual air show that is enjoyed by thousands of spectators each year. However, there were no shows in 2002 and 2003 due to 9/11. The 2006 show was also canceled due to security concerns on base, but was reinstated in 2008. In 2008, pursuant to BRAC 2005, the Air Force Reserve Command's 927th Air Refueling Wing (927 ARW) relocated without aircraft or equipment from Selfridge Air National Guard Base, Michigan to MacDill AFB, where it became an ""Associate"" wing to the 6th Air Mobility Wing sharing the same KC 135R Stratotanker aircraft.Tampa is a city in and the county seat of Hillsborough County, Florida, United States located on the west coast of Florida on Tampa Bay, near the Gulf of Mexico. The city had a population of 346,037 in 2011.The current location of Tampa was once inhabited by indigenous peoples of the Safety Harbor culture, most notably the Tocobaga and the Pohoy, who lived along the shores of Tampa Bay. It was explored by Spanish explorers in the 16th century, resulting in brief and violent coicts with the native peoples and the introduction of European diseases, which wiped out the original native cultures over the next few decades. While Spain claimed Florida as part of New Spain, it did not found a colony in the Tampa area, and there were no permanent American or European settlements within today's city limits until after the United States had acquired Florida from Spain in 1819. In 1824, the United States Army established a frontier outpost called Fort Brooke at the mouth of the Hillsborough River, near the site of today's Tampa Convention Center.

 

The first civilian residents were pioneers who settled near the fort for protection from the nearby Seminole population, and the small village was first incorporated as ""Tampa"" in 1849. The town grew slowly until the 1880s, when railroad links, the discovery of phosphate, and the arrival of the cigar industry jump started its development, helping it to grow from a quiet village of less than 800 residents in 1880 to a bustling city of over 30,000 by the early 1900s.Today, Tampa is a part of the metropolitan area most commonly referred to as the Tampa Bay Area. For U.S. Census purposes, Tampa is part of the Tampa St. Petersburg Clearwater, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area.

 

The four county area is composed of roughly 2.9 million residents, making it the second largest metropolitan statistical area (MSA) in the state, and the fourth largest in the Southeastern United States, behind Miami, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta.[15] The Greater Tampa Bay area has over 4 million residents and generally includes the Tampa and Sarasota metro areas. The Tampa Bay Partnership and U.S. Census data showed an average annual growth of 2.47 percent, or a gain of approximately 97,000 residents per year. Between 2000 and 2006, the Greater Tampa Bay Market experienced a combined growth rate of 14.8 percent, growing from 3.4 million to 3.9 million and hitting the 4 million population mark on April 1, 2007. A 2012 estimate shows the Tampa Bay area population to have 4,310,524 people and a 2017 projection of 4,536,854 people. In 2008, Tampa was ranked as the 5th best outdoor city by Forbes.] A 2004 survey by the NYU newspaper Washington Square News ranked Tampa as a top city for ""twenty somethings."" Tampa also ranks as the fifth most popular American city, based on where people want to live, according to a 2009 Pew Research Center study.[20] Tampa is now ranked as a ""Gamma+"" world city by Loughborough University.

Information for the state of Florida

"In the twentieth century, tourism, industry, construction, international banking, biomedical and life sciences, healthcare research, simulation training, aerospace and defense, and commercial space travel have contributed to the state's economic development. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Florida in 2010 was $748 billion. Its GDP is the fourth largest economy in the United States. In 2010, it became the fourth largest exporter of trade goods.The major contributors to the state's gross output in 2007 were general services, financial services, trade, transportation and public utilities, manufacturing and construction respectively.

 

In 2010 and 2011, the state budget was $70.5 billion, having reached a high of $73.8 billion in 2006and 2007. Chief Executive Magazine name Florida the third ""Best State for Business"" in 2011. Agriculture is the second largest industry in the state. Citrus fruit, especially oranges, are a major part of the economy, and Florida produces the majority of citrus fruit grown in the United States. In 2006, 67% of all citrus, 74% of oranges, 58% of tangerines, and 54% of grapefruit were grown in Florida. About 95% of commercial orange production in the state is destined for processing (mostly as orange juice, the official state beverage). Citrus canker continues to be an issue of concern. From 1997 to 2013, the growing of citrus trees has declined 25%, from 600,000 acres (240,000 ha) to 450,000 acres (180,000 ha). Tourism makes up the largest sector of the state economy. Warm weather and hundreds of miles of beaches attract about 60 million visitors to the state every year. Florida was the top destination state in 2011. 42% of poll respondents living in the Northeast United States said they planned on visiting Florida over spring break.

 

Amusement parks, especially in the Orlando area, make up a significant portion of tourism. The Walt Disney World Resort is the largest vacation resort in the world, consisting of four theme parks and more than 20 hotels in Lake Buena Vista, Florida; it, and Universal Orlando Resort, Busch Gardens, SeaWorld, and other major parks drive state tourism. Many beach towns are also popular tourist destinations, particularly in the winter months. 23.2 million tourists visited Florida beaches in 2000, spending $21.9 billion"

WEBSITE DESIGN. HERE'S HOW.

Why Is Whiteboard Animation So Effective?

 

We know there are many ways to make a video, so why is it that whiteboard animation stands head and shoulders above the rest?

 

It Starts with Drawing

 

With this medium, drawing is the defining characteristic, and when it comes to visual communication, drawing is one of the oldest forms. In fact, some cave drawings are more than 30,000 years old, which shows that long before the invention of paper, pottery, or even farming, drawings were used to communicate ideas. In fact, the idea of civilization itself was pre-dated by drawing by several thousand years.

 

Remember that every drawing ever made requires the viewer's imagination to bring it to life: prior to that it's just an illusion. And therein lies the beauty of whiteboard animation, because the viewer witnesses the creation of the illusion. New lines create possibilities, and the image is undefined until it becomes something recognizable. The viewer understands only too well that the artist is simply making lines on a whiteboard; however, these marks begin to transform as the drawing continues, and then something happens in the viewer's mind: the marks become something recognizable - perhaps an object, a person, or a face. It's simply magical watching something appear from just a few lines on a whiteboard; and perhaps part of the magic is that the viewer is left wondering what will happen next.

 

Telling a Story

 

Ultimately, a whiteboard animation is designed to tell a story; and storytelling is the perfect way to communicate an idea. It can be as instructional and direct as a training video, or as elaborate and fanciful as a fairytale. Perhaps the definition of whiteboard animation is that it's the simultaneous process of verbal and visual storytelling. Studies show that, in terms of learning and retention, the simultaneous delivery of both visual and verbal material is more effective than using one mode by itself, or even in succession with another mode. Basically, learning is enhanced when the dual modality of whiteboard animation delivers a synergistic effect.

 

The Human Element

 

In today's world of powerful computers there are many ways to create a drawing: there's certainly no denying that computers can crunch out details and make drawings look sharp and clean, and they're definitely vital in today's media production. Even the videos we create are dependent on computers for various steps in the process. It's become increasingly rare to find something made by hand, by a human, because we're living in a world dominated by media that's computer-based.

 

It's this human element of whiteboard animation that brings such a level of authenticity to an idea, even though the viewer may not be aware of it. Whiteboard animation pulls an idea down to a human level, down to earth, making it easier to digest and making it more relatable. Perhaps whiteboard animation is so successful because the content becomes more approachable and less intimidating.

 

Contrast and Simplicity

 

The simplicity and contrast of black and white lines has become a welcome reprieve from the never-ending stimulation viewers are bombarded with from media channels and the Internet. More and more people are continuously connected to the Internet through their computers, smart phones, and other devices; and there's certainly no shortage of sites to visit, songs to download, things to click on, and people to contact. It's what's commonly known today as information overload, and we're facing it on a daily basis.

 

But, our minds are always looking for simplicity, and this desire is satisfied with whiteboard animation because it uses high contrast but simple images to tell a story. Our minds distill sensory input down to the essentials by discarding unnecessary fluff and nonsense. This happens all the time and, without this ability, we probably wouldn't be able to function in today's world - there's simply too much going on. With whiteboard animation there are no unnecessary elements, so the mind is not required to dedicate resources to filter distractions, and can dedicate additional resources to the ideas being presented.

 

We Love Being Entertained!

 

Whiteboard videos are entertaining, and this goes back to the magic of watching someone draw. We're all fascinated with the creative way an image relates to the spoken word. Besides using a live artist, animations are also used, which adds an entirely new level of intrigue and magic. When you have something that's both interesting and engaging, it simply adds to the fascination of watching a whiteboard animation.

 

The Simplicity of Distribution

 

Because this is a digital video, it can be distributed in various layers among many platforms. It can be linked to in an email, hosted on a website, placed in an electronic textbook, shown in a presentation, uploaded, downloaded, copied, shared - whatever! Once your whiteboard animation is ready, you can use it or hand it out to anyone you like. Even while you're sleeping, your video can be working for you 24 hours a day, travelling the world. What better way to reach your target audience?

Choosing a Graphic Designer

 

So, you're in the market for a graphic designer! That's great, because if you need a graphic designer it's usually an indication that you've reached the stage of having an audience. Whether it's a company brochure, a new website, or a simple logo, choosing the right graphic designer can be confusing, and sometimes an impossible process. Basically, you check a designer's portfolio of previous work, then commit to paying for something you've never seen, all the while hoping that the designer you've chosen can capture your vision perfectly.

 

About Design

 

To achieve a great result, there needs to be a good-designer/good-client combination; and the way to be a good client is to know what you want. Even the most skilled graphic designer can't deliver what you want if you yourself are not clear on what you're looking for. So, if you're looking to employ the services of a graphic designer, there are things you can and should ask before making a final decision. Now that you've made the decision to use a graphic designer, you're looking for design that will perfectly represent your company. And the good news here is that you have plenty of options!

 

Review Previous Projects

 

Don't make the mistake of reviewing a designer's portfolio and visualizing your own work in one of their past projects. You want your design to be unique, so if you already have an idea about the feel or look of your design, perhaps complex and dramatic, or clean lines, then look for a graphic designer with a portfolio consistent in that type of design.

 

If, at this point, you're not sure what you're looking for, then be prepared: you should be able to provide samples of aesthetics and designs that you quite like, complete with detailed notes. If this is a complex task, like designing an entire website, do your research first. Provide samples of features you don't like and features you do like, and now you know what to look for in your potential designer's previous projects.

 

Arrange an In-Person Meeting

 

Today, most of our communication is conducted via email and text, but the best way for your potential designer to get a clear picture of what you're looking for is to have a one-on-one meeting. If it's not possible to meet in-person, the next best thing would be a video-based or Skype meeting. Once your designer can hear you explaining exactly what you're looking for, and you're able to hear them explain how they believe they can achieve this for you, then it's highly likely you'll quickly be able to come to an agreement.

 

Preparing for the Design Process

 

Because you'll be the one hiring the graphic designer, you need to make sure your interests are being protected; so, once you've narrowed down the designers, try to gain a clearer understanding of how the process will work. Regarding payment terms, consider payment terms upon milestones instead of hours worked; and regarding revisions, you need to ensure that multiple revisions are included in the process. Ideally, you'll be shown rough conceptual drafts of the designer's direction and ultimate intentions, and this will be extremely helpful in ensuring your project is heading in the right direction. Of course, it depends on your project, but these drafts might include basis wireframes, meaning rough sketches of the layout of a web design, or a mood board, which includes ideas of fonts, colors, and other aesthetics they may be considering. This way you'll be able to work together on basic design direction without wasting valuable time.

 

Thinking Long-Term

 

If you believe your project is just the first of many, then let your designer know: it will set the stage for future work. Obviously, the best client-designer relationships are long-term relationships, where the designer has a clear understanding of your branding and how it should be executed. This creates a great basis for communication, and a comfortable forum for editing and required discussions. If you have a comfortable working relationship with your graphic designer, you'll ultimately achieve better results. If you don't have this kind of relationship, it's certainly worth looking at other designers to find exactly what you're looking for.

Whiteboard Animations Convert Viewers into Buyers

 

Whiteboard animations have become popular, exciting, and innovative marketing and advertising tools for products and services and, and when compared to other forms of advertising, they're extremely economical.

 

In this post, we'll take a look at the main reasons whiteboard animation videos convert viewers into buyers -

 

Your Message Is Very Specific

 

The purpose of whiteboard animations is to create a very specific message without all the fluff and nonsense of other types of videos. A whiteboard video message is a focused message; it's uncluttered, which allows your message to be clearly heard and understood.

 

Whiteboard Animations Are Fun!

 

When you have the perfect script and it's done correctly, a whiteboard animation can have an impactful effect on the viewer. Because they're so entertaining, your viewer will look at your company as one they'd like to do business with.

 

They Provide Flexible Marketing

 

Whiteboard animation videos can be placed anywhere, like on the homepage of your website, or in fact any page of your website, and they can be created to relate specifically to the page you place them on.

 

Viewers Remember Animation Videos

 

If you create a great whiteboard animation, your potential customers will not only remember the video, they'll remember you and your service or product. This means they're more likely to tell other people about you.

 

Your Videos Can Be Shared

 

When whiteboard animation videos are used creatively, it makes it much easier for your customers and fans to spread the word about your service or product. Placing animation videos on social marketing sites means that, through sharing and commenting, your viewers are helping spread the word about you and your brand.

 

Viewers Will Quickly Get Your Message

 

When you have a great script-writer for your whiteboard video, the viewer will quickly understand how your product or service fits into their life, how to use it, and the benefits they'll receive. It's not only that the viewer receives step-by-step instructions; your video lets viewers know why they can't live without your product. That's why a great script is so important for your animation video.

 

Your Viewer Is Called to Action

 

Whiteboard videos are so successful in converting viewers into buyers because they contain a specific call to action. It will be very clear to your viewer what they need to do next - whether it's to call a certain telephone number, visit a specific site, or purchase a product; and they'll know exactly where they need to go to complete that task.

 

Individually, the above points play an important role in converting viewers to customers; however, whiteboard animation videos are most productive when all the above are used in some form. Besides the fact that animation videos have a specific call to action, they're also very economical to produce - certainly much less expensive than other types of videos.

 

For your whiteboard animation video to be effective, your first step should be understanding your viewers' call to action. Then, with this information and a strong script, you can go ahead and produce your video. Putting all the above together into an effective whiteboard animation video means you're on the right path to converting your viewers into buyers.

Website Mysteriously Disappears

 

 

Some history on the Website Design Services Industry

 

Website Designer

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.

 

Web Designer Tools and technologies

 

Web designers use a variety of different tools depending on what part of the production process they are involved in. These tools are updated over time by newer standards and software but the principles behind them remain the same. Web designers use both vector and raster graphics editors to create web-formatted imagery or design prototypes. Technologies used to create websites include W3C standards like HTML and CSS, which can be hand-coded or generated by WYSIWYG editing software. Other tools web designers might use include mark up validators and other testing tools for usability and accessibility to ensure their web sites meet web accessibility guidelines.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

User experience design and interactive design

 

User understanding of the content of a website often depends on user understanding of how the website works. This is part of the user experience design. User experience is related to layout, clear instructions and labeling on a website. How well a user understands how they can interact on a site may also depend on the interactive design of the site. If a user perceives the usefulness of the website, they are more likely to continue using it. Users who are skilled and well versed with website use may find a more distinctive, yet less intuitive or less user-friendly website interface useful nonetheless. However, users with less experience are less likely to see the advantages or usefulness of a less intuitive website interface. This drives the trend for a more universal user experience and ease of access to accommodate as many users as possible regardless of user skill. Much of the user experience design and interactive design are considered in the user interface design.

 

Advanced interactive functions may require plug-ins if not advanced coding language skills. Choosing whether or not to use interactivity that requires plug-ins is a critical decision in user experience design. If the plug-in doesn't come pre-installed with most browsers, there's a risk that the user will have neither the know how or the patience to install a plug-in just to access the content. If the function requires advanced coding language skills, it may be too costly in either time or money to code compared to the amount of enhancement the function will add to the user experience. There's also a risk that advanced interactivity may be incompatible with older browsers or hardware configurations. Publishing a function that doesn't work reliably is potentially worse for the user experience than making no attempt. It depends on the target audience if it's likely to be needed or worth any risks.

 

Page layout

 

Part of the user interface design is affected by the quality of the page layout. For example, a designer may consider whether the site's page layout should remain consistent on different pages when designing the layout. Page pixel width may also be considered vital for aligning objects in the layout design. The most popular fixed-width websites generally have the same set width to match the current most popular browser window, at the current most popular screen resolution, on the current most popular monitor size. Most pages are also center-aligned for concerns of aesthetics on larger screens.

 

Fluid layouts increased in popularity around 2000 as an alternative to HTML-table-based layouts and grid-based design in both page layout design principle and in coding technique, but were very slow to be adopted. This was due to considerations of screen reading devices and varying windows sizes which designers have no control over. Accordingly, a design may be broken down into units (sidebars, content blocks, embedded advertising areas, navigation areas) that are sent to the browser and which will be fitted into the display window by the browser, as best it can. As the browser does recognize the details of the reader's screen (window size, font size relative to window etc.) the browser can make user-specific layout adjustments to fluid layouts, but not fixed-width layouts. Although such a display may often change the relative position of major content units, sidebars may be displaced below body text rather than to the side of it. This is a more flexible display than a hard-coded grid-based layout that doesn't fit the device window. In particular, the relative position of content blocks may change while leaving the content within the block unaffected. This also minimizes the user's need to horizontally scroll the page.

Some history on the Graphic Design Services Industry

 

Graphic Designer

Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, photography and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used synonymously. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. They use typography, visual arts, and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), advertising, web design, communication design, product packaging and signage.

 

Applications

 

From road signs to technical schematics, from interoffice memorandums to reference manuals, graphic design enhances transfer of knowledge and visual messages. Readability and legibility is enhanced by improving the visual presentation and layout of text.

 

Design can also aid in selling a product or idea through effective visual communication. It is applied to products and elements of company identity like logos, colors, packaging, and text. Together these are defined as branding (see also advertising). Branding has increasingly become important in the range of services offered by many graphic designers, alongside corporate identity. Whilst the terms are often used interchangeably, branding is more strictly related to the identifying mark or trade name for a product or service, whereas corporate identity can have a broader meaning relating to the structure and ethos of a company, as well as to the company's external image. Graphic designers will often form part of a team working on corporate identity and branding projects. Other members of that team can include marketing professionals, communications consultants and commercial writers.

 

Textbooks are designed to present subjects such as geography, science, and math. These publications have layouts which illustrate theories and diagrams. A common example of graphics in use to educate is diagrams of human anatomy. Graphic design is also applied to layout and formatting of educational material to make the information more accessible and more readily understandable.

 

Skills

 

A graphic design project may involve the stylization and presentation of existing text and either preexisting imagery or images developed by the graphic designer. Artistic pieces can be incorporated in both traditional and digital form, which involves the use of visual arts, typography, and page layout techniques for publications and marketing. For example, a newspaper story begins with the journalists and photojournalists and then becomes the graphic designer's job to organize the page into a reasonable layout and determine if any other graphic elements should be required. In a magazine article or advertisement, often the graphic designer or art director will commission photographers or illustrators to create original pieces just to be incorporated into the design layout. Or the designer may utilize stock imagery or photography. Contemporary design practice has been extended to the modern computer, for example in the use of WYSIWYG user interfaces, often referred to as interactive design, or multimedia design. Another aspect of graphic design is to have good research skills, analyzing a work of art and simultaneously seeing it in new ways. Graphic Design need skills such as power to convince the audience and selling the design. Communication is a key part in graphic design. The process of graphic design include the "process school" which is an approach to the subject that is concerned with the actual process of communication; it especially highlights the channels and media through which messages are transmitted and by which senders and receivers encode and decode. Semiotic School on the other hand, is message as a construction of signs which through interaction with receivers, produces meaning; communication as an agent. The process school is like the way in which a message is brought out to society.

Some history on the Whiteboard Animation Video Services Industry

 

Whiteboard animation

Whiteboard animation is a process where a creative story and storyboard with pictures is drawn on a whiteboard (or something that resembles a whiteboard) by artists who record themselves in the process of their artwork. It is used in TV and internet advertising to communicate messages in a unique way.

 

Terminology

 

The term whiteboard animation comes from the process of someone drawing on a whiteboard and recording it. The actual effect is a time-lapse, or sometimes stop-motion. Actual animation is rarely used but has been incorporated. Other terms are video scribing, and animated doodling. These video animation styles are now seen in many variations, and have taken a turn into many other animation styles. With the introduction of software to create the whiteboard animations, the process has many different manifestations of varying quality.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

Animation

 

Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and the illusion of change[Note 1] by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation. Animation can be recorded with either analogue media, a flip book, motion picture film, video tape, digital media, including formats with animated GIF, Flash animation and digital video. To display animation, a digital camera, computer, or projector are used along with new technologies that are produced.

 

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second. Computer animation processes generating animated images with the general term computer-generated imagery (CGI). 3D animation uses computer graphics, while 2D animation are used for stylistic, low bandwidth and faster real time renderings.

 

Video editing

 

The term video editing can refer to: The process of manipulating video images. Once the province of expensive machines called video editors, video editing software is now available for personal computers and workstations. Video editing includes cutting segments (trimming), re-sequencing clips, and adding transitions and other Special Effects.

 

Linear video editing, using video tape and is edited in a very linear way. Several video clips from different tapes are recorded to one single tape in the order that they will appear.

 

Non-linear editing system (NLE), This is edited on computers with specialised software. These are non destructive to the video being edited and use programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro and Avid.

 

Offline editing is the process in which raw footage is copied from an original source, without affecting the original film stock or video tape. Once the editing has been completely edited, the original media is then re-assembled in the online editing stage.

 

Online editing is the process of reassembling the edit to full resolution video after an offline edit has been performed and is done in the final stage of a video production.

 

Vision mixing, when working within live television and video production environments. A vision mixer is used to cut live feed coming from several cameras in real time.

 

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures.
