Explainer Animation

University of Cumbria

The Enterprise and Business Development department offer support to boost the business community in Cumbria, North Lancashire and beyond.


morph were approached by the University of Cumbria  to create a short explainer animation for their enterprise and Business development department.

The university offer a wide range of services for businesses, including knowledge and expertise, R&D and innovation, and degree and higher level apprenticeships to name a few! The biggest challenge that we faced was to cover everything in a useful way whilst keeping the animation engaging and under two minutes.

We used one of our in-house design styles as the basis for the animation. We tweaked the style to bring them in line with University’s brand guidelines, using their colour scheme, fonts, and creating some bespoke illustrations such as their campus buildings.

This is a fantastic way to keep costs down, and still get an animation that fits in perfectly with your brand. If you are looking for an animation company in Lancaster or Kendal please get in touch.

Morph interpreted our brief perfectly


Morph were great to work with. We went to them with lots of ideas not knowing how to bring them to life, and they produced something that exceeded all expectations. They made the process easy for us to understand, and interpreted our needs perfectly. The animation fits in with our branding, and the attention to detail throughout is more than we could have asked for. The animation is now a great resource for our team – we offer such a wide range of services, and Morph helped us get across everything that we do in a concise (and beautifully designed and animated!) way. Thank you for all of your help!
