What are video explainers?
Video explainers are 1 to 3 minute clips that explain to customers your product, service or message with fun, easy-to-understand and engaging animations or motion infographics.
We believe a great explainer video deserves a great mascot. They can bring life, narrate a video and be fully acted.
Let’s introduce the mascot that we newly developed for our client. Sunbeam is the HKUST MBA ambassador guiding students and candidates through their MBA journeys. He looks smart, professional, energetic, and most important of all, friendly and helpful in his portrayal.
Sunbeam, when taking a closer look, you will notice its head shape with the traits of a sundial, resembling the symbolic icon of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Sunbeam will be seen at different events and occasions. Therefore, we have designed him with several outfits, as if he is the close companion to the MBA students and candidates, giving a stronger sense of trust and authenticity.
