Artwork animated as an mp4 for instagram

Taking a flat piece of artwork, it can be pulled apart and put back together again to create a fascinating and noticeable graphic. When it's used for instagram it would need to be converted to an mp4. Here's how we animated a printed magazine cover.

Animated gifs work really well for Twitter

Gifs are given a priority on Twitter, and currently appear on the feed larger than flat images – so it's worth the extra effort. Make sure you design them as a square. Here's a magazine cover bought to life by lighting up the building.

Short video animation works well on Facebook

Try making simple explanation videos, or employ the use of infographics. This video was created by Red Onion in OSX keynote to animate some key messages. We can do the same for you.

Video and graphics combined for Facebook

Using existing footage shot by the University, we overlaid it with bespoke graphics and animation to provide a final promotional video for the magazine.

Infographics easy to understand quickly

Red Onion can create simple and effective icons and images to help your social media campaign be better than ever before.

Good Quality Images

Ensure you start with the best quality images you have. Though websites often only display at 72dpi, and the platforms will scale resolution to match their specification, it’s worth providing good quality images from the start

Wide-ranging Campaign

Think about your campaign. If you want to build interest in something, you’ll need to approach it from lots of different angles.

Multiple formats

Often they'll be one idea that will need to be presented in a variety of sizes, so bear this in mind when you're having something designed

Picture Research

We'll help hunt down the best images for you. We can negotiate with the top end high budget agencies, or work with the best low budget picture libraries

Quick website SEO checklist

✔️ Know your audience
This is critical in creating great SEO that encourages engagement and conversion. First and foremost you need to be clear on who you want to view and read your web page, and you can reach them with defined and targeted content.

✔️ Accurate memorable headlines
Make sure your headline uses descriptive words which are also mentioned in the body of the web page. Also use SEO plugins to ensure your social media and search description are clearly written.

✔️ Write long features
Generally google likes lots of words. Break up the content into sections and use subheads (don't use the headline tag as Google only likes one headline on a page). Provide links which point internally to your site.


Red Onion will devise a social media strategy with you and design, write and post social media posts on your behalf if you like. We can provide you with statistical analysis on post reach for Instagram, Twitter and Facebook if required. For website SEO, we use our specialists to ensure best practises, and provide optional analysis of hit-rate growth.
