KNOWLEDGE IN FULL COLOUR
We combine design flair with editorial rigour & narrative nous to create animated explainers, motion graphics, infographics and multimedia communications pieces that really succeed.
Storyburst is a creative content agency with journalistic craft at its core.
We are old school sub-editors and dogged reporters with new school skills in digital design and visual narrative. We are here to tell important stories in whatever format will best ensure that they are heard, understood and acted upon in the modern media landscape. As the tagline says: vital information needs vibrant presentation...
We do MOTION DESIGN: short animated videos that explain your ideas or summarise your report simply, dynamically & engagingly.
We do LIVE CONTENT, as Visual Newsdesk – attending conferences and events to provide contemporaneous visual reports that burst with colour and atmosphere, with a laser focus on quality information, newsworthiness and accuracy.
We create INFOGRAPHICS and SOCIAL IMAGES: A visual treatment that ensures your statistics and key messages grab attention and are quickly absorbed and retained.
We write, edit and design all manner of PRINT & DIGITAL PUBLICATIONS: brochures, reports, books, appumentaries, multimedia articles & blog posts – whatever's required...
If you have a story, get in touch and we'll find the brightest, strongest way of telling it...
