Related: What are Motion Graphics?

Design Pickle's Motion Graphic service is included in the Graphics Premium plan and lets you apply motion to graphic design.

Although motion graphics can be applied to video and used to enhance a piece of video content, Motion Graphic Artists are not able to edit the underlying video.

What we can do is add visual elements to a finalized video, stitch finalized videos together, or create a standalone animation, applying movement to the graphic design.


  • Trademarked names, brands, and quotes

  • Photorealistic visual effects

  • Video Editing (the process of modifying, rearranging, or manipulating an unedited video file to finalize its presentation - Motion Graphics is not Video Editing)

  • Videos longer than our maximum video duration (5 minutes)

  • Advanced compositing

  • 3D animation

  • Voiceovers or other non-motion graphics work

  • Writing or transcribing audio

Now that the limitations are out of the way, here's what we can create for you!

Scope & Turnaround:

A general estimate is that it takes 2-7 business days to complete motion graphic requests. The longer & more complex the video, the longer it'll take! The amount of graphics, moving parts, revisions, and overall complexity add to the time it takes to complete a request, so for some projects, it may take longer than 7 days to complete.


Moving text that uses motion to express ideas and tell stories.


Used to enhance your message, point to a specific feature or object in the video, or introduce a topic or person with moving titles.

Sometimes referred to as a production logo or vanity card in the film and television industry, an animated logo brings your brand logo to life.

✅ GRAPHIC LOOPS: 1-2 days

Whether on display at trade shows, events, your business’s office headquarters, or online on review platforms, graphic loops are simple, animated elements that can include logos, text, and patterns in addition to other elements to create a seamless visual graphic that animates in a perfect, seamless loop.

✅ ANIMATED EXPLAINER VIDEOS: 3-5 days (for 90 seconds)

This will help you communicate the full scope of your business, product, or service in a visually engaging way.

This applies if you've already got an After Effects template you'd like to use or edit.

If you have an existing motion graphics template or find one through our stock libraries we can edit it in great detail to custom suit your needs. You never have to feel restricted by the template again, our artists are skilled in adjusting and repurposing parts of the templates you choose to create custom tailored motion graphics just for you.


Includes lower thirds and video transitions.

Just like still images that use .PNG to preserve transparency, motion graphics can be created with the transparency preserved so that you can overlay them over your own videos and images.

✅ Additional in-scope items:

  • Video Stitching - Seamlessly placing two or more video assets together. Original videos must be provided in fully edited form.

  • Transition Effects - Effects applied to stitched videos, creating a smooth transition from one video to another

  • Subtitling - Copy-ready text/transcript has to be provided
