Looking for a top motion graphics company in Chicago?

There's a difference between animation and motion graphics: Motion graphics is a type of animation that creates the illusion of moving objects. It's best for video or other multimedia projects that do not require storytelling. For example, if you have a video presentation that highlights a particular metric, you can use motion graphics to make the number stand out and grab the audience's attention.

To assist you in your search for a partner, we’ve compiled this list of the top motion graphics studios in Chicago. Browse descriptions, feedback, and awards to find which can best suit your company’s needs. If you need more support, tell us about your project, and we'll match you with recommended companies.
