Who we are
What we do is make videos and digital content for clients, but who we are is a small team of visual storytellers. We’re curious about your organization, what you’re great at, and what sets you apart.
Forgive us in advance if we ask a lot of questions — it’s how we make great content.
Our team has spent the past decade learning about organizations of all shapes, sizes and functions. Our passion is taking your message and shaping it into marketing content that takes you to a whole new level.
What’s in a name?
Motifs are images, ideas, sounds and stories that are used time and time again, to convey messages that resonate with the human condition. They help us construct meaning, form beliefs, and build narratives.
Motion represents the dynamic nature of our work. Through motion, interactivity, and dynamic design, our work stimulates the brain and helps the eyeball track unfolding stories.
Put together, Motifmotion is both a name and a mission. We combine classic and visual storytelling techniques with movement, creating a world before our viewers’ eyes.
Co founder, hat wearer
I’m a diehard learner. I love the challenge of picking up and becoming proficient at a new skill. I have a dozen years of marketing experience under my belt and I’m always looking for new ways to express an idea.
Co founder, hat wearer
I’m a sociologist by training with a particular interest in message framing, storytelling, and clear communication.
I believe in respect for viewers’ intelligence, targeted messaging, and elegant picture painting.
Director of Partnerships
Barbara heads up partnership and sales development at Motifmotion. With a background in HigherEd admissions, Division I athletics recruiting, and career counseling, Barbara loves people more than Motifmotion loves animations. And that’s saying something!
Many moons ago Ash was Motifmotion’s very first intern. Today, they are a project manager guru, taking videos from the womb to their final resting place (you know…the internet). Ash also develops storyboards, guides artists, and works with Motifmotion team members on a range of internal projects.
Jelica is a Munich based art director, graphic designer, illustrator and all around artistic guru (editors note – she’s too humble to say that, so we are saying it for her). With a portfolio of work as breadthy as it is depthy, she’s led branding efforts for companies across Europe.
Visual Storyteller Production Values
Content is king
It’s always about the message. Whether it’s a video, website, an application or an interactive communication piece, the message informs every decision we make. This includes how we approach market targeting, design and development, tone, and execution.
Presentation is part of the product
While the message itself is the most critical consideration, how it’s packaged and presented is key to ensuring the audience understands and processes it. People want experience when they learn.
Context is crucial
Where, when, why, how, and other surrounding circumstances impact how well the idea is perceived and received by viewers.
