Top 10 Explainer Videos

Updated: Jun 7, 2019

It’s hard to believe but we’ve been making explainer videos for over a decade. In that time, we’ve produced dozens of explainers for companies all over the world. This includes some of the most memorable and effective videos ever made in both animated and live action forms.


Here are the Top Ten Explainer Videos from 2008 to 2018.


Also, to learn more about Explainer Videos, check out Why Explainer Videos Matter.


10. Blippy

What is Blippy? It's a conversation-starter, a record of your purchases, a bit of a voyeur. "Blippy lets you communicate about and share purchases with friends by syncing already existing e-commerce accounts to Blippy such as iTunes, Netflix, Woot, eBay and more."


A controversial product, our animated explainer video showed how it could be fun and safe.


This video is particularly notable for the press that we received from Michael Arrington in an article on TechCrunch: techcrunch.com/2010/07/04/oh-so-thats-what-blippy-does-video/


9. Aiqudo

Aiqudo wanted to showcase its powerful new technology, Q Actions. Our creative team developed and animated an explainer video showing how Q Actions can transform a user’s daily activities.


8. Clockspot

“Clockspot is employee time tracking built for the modern, mobile workplace.” We worked with Clockspot to show how time tracking can actually be vibrant. Dynamic even. For this animated explainer, we developed a visual style, script, and pacing that made use of time motifs to spice up what could be seen as a dry or mechanical product area.


7. Box

Back then, Box wasn't what it is now. Our animated explainer showed exactly what they did and how awesome it all was. Still going strong after all these years.


6. New Relic Synthetic Performance Monitoring

We brought out the character animation for this one. Fun robots and 2D animation brought this explainer to life.


5. Gong

The VP of Sales knows how to steer a ship. And he uses Gong. One of our favorite characters, he stars in our top live action explainer video.


4. Visual.ly

Visual.ly is a platform for discovering great visualizations and infographics. We put together a manifesto video for the launch that declares Visual.ly to be at the cutting edge of the visualization movement. Welcome to the age of "Big Data"!


3. Google Map Maker

Our top 3D animated explainer is a walkthrough of Google's MapMaker product.


2. Facebook Ads

Facebook asked us to show the power of advertising on Facebook! We delivered this dynamic animated explainer.


1. Mint

We teamed up to create the introductory video on Mint.com’s homepage. This animated explainer video -- which spurred many imitations -- introduced folks to the product and invited them to get started with personal finance. We played off the style of the new site design and put it in motion. Really fun and fresh!


There you go, the best explainer videos we've produced over the past ten years.
