Looking for a top whiteboard animation company

Whiteboard animation is a video production technique that uses illustrations and static images to explain to viewers the video’s content. These videos often come with a voiceover or narration that helps further clarify your message.

It may sound and look easy, but whiteboard video production requires top-notch video production and animation skills. The final output must be memorable, visually appealing, and effective in conveying its intended message. At the same time, whiteboard video production's costs depend on a variety of factors, such as the style of characters, animation time, and overall production value.

That's why we've created this list of the best whiteboard animation studios for you to review. Read through company descriptions, former clients, and notable projects to find the best fit for your business. (And, if you want personalized recommendations, tell us about your project.)
