Information for the city of Elk Grove

Elk Grove is a city in Sacramento County, California, located just south of the state capital of Sacramento. It is part of the Sacramento Arden Arcade Roseville Metropolitan Statistical Area. As of 2014, the population of the city was estimated at 160,688. The second largest city in Sacramento County, Elk Grove earned the title of the fastest growing city in the U.S. between July 1, 2004, and July 1, 2005.According to Elk Grove's 2010 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, the top employers in the city are:

 

 

Information for the state of California

The economy of California is large enough to be comparable to that of the largest of countries. FY 2011, the gross state product (GSP) is about $1.96 trillion, the largest in the United States. California is responsible for 13.1 percent of the United States' $14.96 trillion gross domestic product (GDP). California's GDP is larger than that of all but 8 countries in dollar terms (the United States, China, Japan, Germany, France, Brazil, the United Kingdom, and Italy).

 

California's GDP is larger than the GDPs of Russia, India, Canada, Australia, and Spain; in terms of Purchasing Power Parity,[103] it is larger than all but 9 countries (the United States, China, India, Japan, Germany, Russia, Brazil, France, the United Kingdom, Italy), larger than Mexico, South Korea, Spain, Canada, and Turkey. In terms of jobs, the five largest sectors in California are trade, transportation, and utilities; government; professional and business services; education and health services; and leisure and hospitality. In terms of output, the five largest sectors are financial services, followed by trade, transportation, and utilities; education and health services; government; and manufacturing. Agriculture is an important sector in California's economy. Farming-related sales more than quadrupled over the past three decades, from $7.3 billion in 1974 to nearly $31 billion in 2004.[107] This increase has occurred despite a 15 percent decline in acreage devoted to farming during the period, and water supply suffering from chronic instability.

 

Factors contributing to the growth in sales-per-acre include more intensive use of active farmlands and technological improvements in crop production.[107] In 2008, California's 81,500 farms and ranches generated $36.2 billion products revenue.[108] In 2011, that number grew to $43.5 billion products revenue.

IS YOUR COMPANY WEBSITE DESIGN POOR

A Step-By-Step Process to Choosing the Right Web Design Agency

 

Most business owners and managers realize that, in order to succeed in today's competitive marketplace, you must create a great brand experience for your customers. Marketing methods have changed dramatically over the past few years and today's consumer has many different platforms on which to make their purchasing decisions. Therefore, it's up to you to find the right agency to deliver your company's message to both current and potential new customers in the most effective way possible.

 

See below for our checklist on how to make the right decision when choosing a web design agency -

 

No. 1: Know What You're Looking For

 

First of all, determine what you're trying to achieve with your website and internet marketing. What are your goals? How will you measure success? If you'll be running an e-commerce website, then your focus will probably be on creating and growing your customer base, ROI (Return on Investment), and conversion of sales. On the other hand, if you need brand awareness because you're launching a new company, the purpose of your website will be to provide information and education about your products or services, which means you need a site that provides good visibility and a clear focus. Once you've determined what's required to accomplish your goals it won't be difficult to find an agency that suits your needs.

 

Action: At this point you need to ask your potential web design agency to provide proof of their capabilities. Ideally, they'll be showing you examples or case studies of problems they've faced and the solutions they've provided.

 

No. 2: You Get What You Pay For

 

 

Cost can often be the deal maker or breaker when it comes to hiring a web design agency. It's important to remember that, like other products and services you purchase, that old saying ‘you get what you pay for' is just as true when it comes to web design and development. Be cautious about cutting costs just to save a dollar or two right now, because it may be something you regret long-term. Justifying the cost of your web design comes down to simple math and, as a business owner, you need to do some research. How much money have you spent in the last year, on marketing and advertising? What about the past five years? Are you satisfied with the return on your investment those efforts have provided? You may not receive the long-term value from your website and fail to see the results you planned for if you start cutting costs at this point.

 

Action: Remember that we're talking about value here - not cost, so ask your agency if they're able to provide solid evidence of the value delivered with tangible results. Cost won't be a deal breaker if the agency can provide a service or website that brings ROI, so don't let sticker-shock prevent you from achieving your goals. Once you've done the research we recommended, it's highly likely you'll discover you've been spending a lot of money without results for some time now.

 

No. 3: What's Their Track Record?

 

 

It's important to note here that this doesn't mean that an agency must have been in business for decades because, in fact, many new agencies have new methodologies and some great innovative ideas to consider. What you need to know is this: Does the agency understand your industry? Has this agency delivered effective solutions to previous clients?

 

Action: Ask your potential web design agency for information like client testimonials, performance data, and perhaps one or two case studies demonstrating both their approach and how results are measured.

 

No. 4: Are They Good Communicators?

 

 

You must understand what your web designer is talking about and what they're doing, or planning on doing. The Internet is constantly changing, which makes it technically challenging and highly complex for most users, so if you're already confused or lost in the discussion, then your designer is failing you. When having a discussion with your web design agency it's up to them to explain what they do, how they do it, but even more importantly, why they're doing it. They need to be on your side - working for you.

 

Action: We'll start by saying that it's always up to you to do your own research, but once you hire a web design agency you should feel comfortable knowing that you can ask them questions about what they're doing; like their methodologies, their processes, and why they're making certain decisions or recommendations. If there's something you don't understand about your web project, then you must be comfortable in asking them, in addition to receiving an answer that's clear and understandable.

 

No. 5: Content Is Paramount

 

 

When making the decision to either makeover a website or launch a new one, the first things that usually come to mind are how you want your website to both look and function. However, while these are both very important aspects, don't overlook the fact that your website content is the most important factor. So, if your designer intends to deal with art before the content on your website, then you have the wrong designer. A website designer with a lot of expertise will ask many, many questions about your industry, your business, and your customers. If they fail to do this, look for a new designer.

 

It's very important that the agency you hire understands the importance of content, because quite honestly, it's the most important aspect of your website. It doesn't matter whether the content will be received from a copywriter or whether they're creating the content themselves; your designer is simply creating a framework to house the content. They need a full understanding of how users will interact with the content and how you intend managing the content in future, thus ensuring your website is delivering the right message and that the quality will be maintained for years to come.

 

Action: By content we mean everything that includes written copy, videos, images, and more. Content is designed to help your customers, so it's imperative that your web design agency is talking about content before art. Preferably, they'll be in touch with your copywriters or marketing team if they themselves will not be creating the content.

 

No. 6: Be Realistic about What You're Trying to Achieve

 

 

Again, this comes down to you doing your research: put some thought and time into what your goals and expectations are from your web design agency. Determine how you'll know if your money was well spent in (say) six months and then (say) one years' time. Besides getting more traffic or being first on Google, you might be looking at increasing online sales, generating more leads, or improving brand or product awareness.

 

Action: Ask your new web design agency what services and tools they use or provide to drive measurable traffic to your website. By now your agency will understand your sales process, so it should be a simple matter of providing a workable solution to make your processes more effective and efficient, thus providing real value through your new website.

 

No. 7: Understand Your Web Strategy

 

 

A professional web design agency will offer you a clear web strategy which goes beyond your website. Your strategy should offer your business a strong sense of trust, authority, and relevance; because with a solid plan you can measure, and when you're able to measure you can make good decisions based on accurate data. The result is that with accurate data you can convert visitors to your site into paying customers.

 

Action: It's up to your agency to explain in great detail what their approach is, and of course it's up to you to ask! The strategy should be designed to help you reach your goals, whilst staying within budget.

 

No. 8: Capitalizing on Your Investment

 

 

Once your new website has launched, a good web design agency will continue their relationship with you. A professional design agency will help with analytic reporting and work with you to ensure you reach your goals.

 

Action: When hiring a new web design agency, ask about their ongoing relationships; meaning, how are they currently assisting other clients? Ask if they have ongoing service or maintenance plans on perhaps a monthly or quarterly basis that you may be able to sign up for.

Choosing a Graphic Designer

 

So, you're in the market for a graphic designer! That's great, because if you need a graphic designer it's usually an indication that you've reached the stage of having an audience. Whether it's a company brochure, a new website, or a simple logo, choosing the right graphic designer can be confusing, and sometimes an impossible process. Basically, you check a designer's portfolio of previous work, then commit to paying for something you've never seen, all the while hoping that the designer you've chosen can capture your vision perfectly.

 

About Design

 

To achieve a great result, there needs to be a good-designer/good-client combination; and the way to be a good client is to know what you want. Even the most skilled graphic designer can't deliver what you want if you yourself are not clear on what you're looking for. So, if you're looking to employ the services of a graphic designer, there are things you can and should ask before making a final decision. Now that you've made the decision to use a graphic designer, you're looking for design that will perfectly represent your company. And the good news here is that you have plenty of options!

 

Review Previous Projects

 

Don't make the mistake of reviewing a designer's portfolio and visualizing your own work in one of their past projects. You want your design to be unique, so if you already have an idea about the feel or look of your design, perhaps complex and dramatic, or clean lines, then look for a graphic designer with a portfolio consistent in that type of design.

 

If, at this point, you're not sure what you're looking for, then be prepared: you should be able to provide samples of aesthetics and designs that you quite like, complete with detailed notes. If this is a complex task, like designing an entire website, do your research first. Provide samples of features you don't like and features you do like, and now you know what to look for in your potential designer's previous projects.

 

Arrange an In-Person Meeting

 

Today, most of our communication is conducted via email and text, but the best way for your potential designer to get a clear picture of what you're looking for is to have a one-on-one meeting. If it's not possible to meet in-person, the next best thing would be a video-based or Skype meeting. Once your designer can hear you explaining exactly what you're looking for, and you're able to hear them explain how they believe they can achieve this for you, then it's highly likely you'll quickly be able to come to an agreement.

 

Preparing for the Design Process

 

Because you'll be the one hiring the graphic designer, you need to make sure your interests are being protected; so, once you've narrowed down the designers, try to gain a clearer understanding of how the process will work. Regarding payment terms, consider payment terms upon milestones instead of hours worked; and regarding revisions, you need to ensure that multiple revisions are included in the process. Ideally, you'll be shown rough conceptual drafts of the designer's direction and ultimate intentions, and this will be extremely helpful in ensuring your project is heading in the right direction. Of course, it depends on your project, but these drafts might include basis wireframes, meaning rough sketches of the layout of a web design, or a mood board, which includes ideas of fonts, colors, and other aesthetics they may be considering. This way you'll be able to work together on basic design direction without wasting valuable time.

 

Thinking Long-Term

 

If you believe your project is just the first of many, then let your designer know: it will set the stage for future work. Obviously, the best client-designer relationships are long-term relationships, where the designer has a clear understanding of your branding and how it should be executed. This creates a great basis for communication, and a comfortable forum for editing and required discussions. If you have a comfortable working relationship with your graphic designer, you'll ultimately achieve better results. If you don't have this kind of relationship, it's certainly worth looking at other designers to find exactly what you're looking for.

The Right WebSite Design

 

Adrien Goodard was sitting at his desk going through his finances. Things were in good shape for his company - Goodard Plumbing, but he knew that with the right marketing strategy that his company could be in much better shape. With the right way of going about it, he could grow his company so that his part-time employees could have more hours - increasing his bottom line and theirs. Maybe, he thought, I could even manage to get enough money to take my wife on that trip she's been wanting to go on for years. Adrien decided that creating a website would be a good marketing decision especially with the internet being so front-of-the-line when it came to business practices. He decided to do a quick search online of what web design companies were in his area. When he saw the list of over twenty companies, he felt overwhelmed. How am I ever going to choose the right company from this list. I can't just choose anyone because the website will be the first thing that prospective new clients see about us, he wondered. Just then the phone rang and Adrien took it. He had a customer who had an emergency and needed him and his crew on site immediately. Adrien called his employees and then headed out to his truck. His marketing plans would have to wait.

 

It was late by the time that Adrien had dealt with the emergency and headed home. At the back of his mind he had many thoughts of what he'd like to say to his customers - both current and potential but it didn't sound right to him. He stayed up for a little while pacing the kitchen floor and drinking too much coffee trying to come up with an image in his mind. He felt tired the next morning when he went to work. He once again looked at the abundant list of web design companies advertised. He decided that the best way to find out about the companies was to take a quick look at their website and then speak with them. Adrien wasn't a man who felt comfortable conducting business over the internet, he liked to do things face to face. However, he supposed that he would have to learn about writing an effective e-mail once his website was up and running. The thought frightened him. The first call that Adrien made was to an internet start-up. The young man who met with him was friendly and presented Adrien with templates for the type of site that he could do.

 

""Once the website is built, do you put on any updates that we have?"" asked Adrien, ""for example, if I wanted to advertise the importance of having drains checked annually, and maybe offered a coupon once and a while for services such as this.""

 

""We could do that for you, sir,"" said the man, ""for a fee of course.""

 

""Have your clients been satisfied with your work so far?"" asked Adrien.

 

""Well, sir, we haven't had many clients, sir, but we hope to make the ones we get happy, after all that's how we'll make our business successful.""

 

""Thank you,"" said Adrien, ""you're the first company that I have interviewed but I will keep you in mind.""

 

After the young man had left, Adrien thought about the conversation that he had. The young man had been personable but Adrien felt anxious about the possibility of him creating the site for the plumbing company. He decided that he needed to know more about choosing the right internet company. It was a different experience than hiring plumbers or choosing companies to supply his tools of the trade. He found a few online texts to give him a better idea of what he was looking for. It made him realize that he needed to keep looking because a new company might not stay in business long enough to keep his website updated and successful for his business. He was also hoping for something that would distinguish him from other plumbers in the area, which meant that a template design was too generic for his needs. Ah, thought Adrien, this is stressful. I didn't realize that I needed to understand so many things about the internet to make the right choice when it comes to having a website. I've been in business fifteen years and have never had one before, but I know that it is important that I keep up with the marketing trends. A lot of potential clients aren't just going to look in the local entrepreneurs' guide. They're going to use search engines to find what they need because they always have their phones close by. I don't have the time to meet with every company on the list. It will take up too much of my time - time that I should be investing in my business. Adrien glanced up at the clock. It was nearing lunchtime and he needed a break. He decided to head out and get something. At the local diner, he ordered a burger, fries and soda.

 

""Hi, Adrien,"" said the waitress Marie, ""you look like something's eating at you.""

 

""Just trying to figure out a way to get a website created for my business. I had no idea there were so many webpage designers and companies in the area. I just don't have time to interview them all, and reading reviews and about each one online is equally time consuming.""

 

""I could recommend a designer for you,"" said Marie.

 

""You could?"" asked Adrien.

 

""Yes, you should contact Louisa Clayton at Clayton Commercial Arts. She looks after the diner's site and does a great job. Her company's been around for over ten years and is reliable. She has made a real success of her business and her skills are diverse. She's a graphic designer, web designer, artist and she also makes her own videos.""

 

""Wow,"" said Adrien, ""you sound like a walking billboard for her skills.""

 

Marie laughed, ""it isn't the first time that I've recommended her over the years and I've never heard of her letting anyone down. She makes all of her websites unique and she's good about bringing her own ideas to the table, and listening to what your vision is.""

 

Adrien made an appointment to meet with Louisa at the end of the week. After the introductions, Louisa made her pitch to Adrien.

 

""I'm impressed. You researched my company,"" said Adrien.

 

""I've found it to be a necessary part of my job,"" said Louisa, ""I like to be able to make a pitch at my first meeting. It saves us both time. I've come up with a few mock-ups for what I could do for your company. Bear in mind that I can change any colors or fonts that you want to match with what you want.""

 

""I like that,"" said Adrien when he saw a design that had a background that resembled pipes in a colorful pattern.""

 

""Plumbing isn't usually considered something fun or interesting, so I thought that we needed to put a fun spin on it. With the information that you can provide me, I can create pages that make your website user-friendly. Because plumbing isn't in a technological field, I find that a simple approach is usually best.""

 

""I think that sounds very reasonable,"" replied Adrien.

 

A few days later, Louisa stopped by the plumbing company to show Adrien what his completed website would look like. He was very impressed and thankful for her assistance.

 

""Now, you just have to advertise that you have a website,"" said Louisa, ""it will help you draw in customers. It is something that you can either do yourself, or you can leave it with my company. Our marketing department can help get the information out there online as well as through the radio and print media like flyers and the newspaper.""

 

""Can you outline the costs for that,"" said Adrien.

 

Louisa did and Adrien found the costs reasonable and retained her firm to do more work for him. He was impressed when a few days later he got a phone call from a new client who had seen his website. His stress level was down and he was sleeping well at night. Hiring Louisa Clayton's company had been a smart decision and he knew that he would be willing to refer her in the future to other fellow businessmen who might need a push in the direction of the right design like he had.

How To Get More Profit From Your Website

 

 

Some history on the Website Design Services Industry

 

Website Designer

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.

 

Web Designer Tools and technologies

 

Web designers use a variety of different tools depending on what part of the production process they are involved in. These tools are updated over time by newer standards and software but the principles behind them remain the same. Web designers use both vector and raster graphics editors to create web-formatted imagery or design prototypes. Technologies used to create websites include W3C standards like HTML and CSS, which can be hand-coded or generated by WYSIWYG editing software. Other tools web designers might use include mark up validators and other testing tools for usability and accessibility to ensure their web sites meet web accessibility guidelines.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

User experience design and interactive design

 

User understanding of the content of a website often depends on user understanding of how the website works. This is part of the user experience design. User experience is related to layout, clear instructions and labeling on a website. How well a user understands how they can interact on a site may also depend on the interactive design of the site. If a user perceives the usefulness of the website, they are more likely to continue using it. Users who are skilled and well versed with website use may find a more distinctive, yet less intuitive or less user-friendly website interface useful nonetheless. However, users with less experience are less likely to see the advantages or usefulness of a less intuitive website interface. This drives the trend for a more universal user experience and ease of access to accommodate as many users as possible regardless of user skill. Much of the user experience design and interactive design are considered in the user interface design.

 

Advanced interactive functions may require plug-ins if not advanced coding language skills. Choosing whether or not to use interactivity that requires plug-ins is a critical decision in user experience design. If the plug-in doesn't come pre-installed with most browsers, there's a risk that the user will have neither the know how or the patience to install a plug-in just to access the content. If the function requires advanced coding language skills, it may be too costly in either time or money to code compared to the amount of enhancement the function will add to the user experience. There's also a risk that advanced interactivity may be incompatible with older browsers or hardware configurations. Publishing a function that doesn't work reliably is potentially worse for the user experience than making no attempt. It depends on the target audience if it's likely to be needed or worth any risks.

 

Page layout

 

Part of the user interface design is affected by the quality of the page layout. For example, a designer may consider whether the site's page layout should remain consistent on different pages when designing the layout. Page pixel width may also be considered vital for aligning objects in the layout design. The most popular fixed-width websites generally have the same set width to match the current most popular browser window, at the current most popular screen resolution, on the current most popular monitor size. Most pages are also center-aligned for concerns of aesthetics on larger screens.

 

Fluid layouts increased in popularity around 2000 as an alternative to HTML-table-based layouts and grid-based design in both page layout design principle and in coding technique, but were very slow to be adopted. This was due to considerations of screen reading devices and varying windows sizes which designers have no control over. Accordingly, a design may be broken down into units (sidebars, content blocks, embedded advertising areas, navigation areas) that are sent to the browser and which will be fitted into the display window by the browser, as best it can. As the browser does recognize the details of the reader's screen (window size, font size relative to window etc.) the browser can make user-specific layout adjustments to fluid layouts, but not fixed-width layouts. Although such a display may often change the relative position of major content units, sidebars may be displaced below body text rather than to the side of it. This is a more flexible display than a hard-coded grid-based layout that doesn't fit the device window. In particular, the relative position of content blocks may change while leaving the content within the block unaffected. This also minimizes the user's need to horizontally scroll the page.

Some history on the Graphic Design Services Industry

 

Graphic Designer

Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, photography and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used synonymously. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. They use typography, visual arts, and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), advertising, web design, communication design, product packaging and signage.

 

Applications

 

From road signs to technical schematics, from interoffice memorandums to reference manuals, graphic design enhances transfer of knowledge and visual messages. Readability and legibility is enhanced by improving the visual presentation and layout of text.

 

Design can also aid in selling a product or idea through effective visual communication. It is applied to products and elements of company identity like logos, colors, packaging, and text. Together these are defined as branding (see also advertising). Branding has increasingly become important in the range of services offered by many graphic designers, alongside corporate identity. Whilst the terms are often used interchangeably, branding is more strictly related to the identifying mark or trade name for a product or service, whereas corporate identity can have a broader meaning relating to the structure and ethos of a company, as well as to the company's external image. Graphic designers will often form part of a team working on corporate identity and branding projects. Other members of that team can include marketing professionals, communications consultants and commercial writers.

 

Textbooks are designed to present subjects such as geography, science, and math. These publications have layouts which illustrate theories and diagrams. A common example of graphics in use to educate is diagrams of human anatomy. Graphic design is also applied to layout and formatting of educational material to make the information more accessible and more readily understandable.

A graphic design project may involve the stylization and presentation of existing text and either preexisting imagery or images developed by the graphic designer. Artistic pieces can be incorporated in both traditional and digital form, which involves the use of visual arts, typography, and page layout techniques for publications and marketing. For example, a newspaper story begins with the journalists and photojournalists and then becomes the graphic designer's job to organize the page into a reasonable layout and determine if any other graphic elements should be required. In a magazine article or advertisement, often the graphic designer or art director will commission photographers or illustrators to create original pieces just to be incorporated into the design layout. Or the designer may utilize stock imagery or photography. Contemporary design practice has been extended to the modern computer, for example in the use of WYSIWYG user interfaces, often referred to as interactive design, or multimedia design. Another aspect of graphic design is to have good research skills, analyzing a work of art and simultaneously seeing it in new ways. Graphic Design need skills such as power to convince the audience and selling the design. Communication is a key part in graphic design. The process of graphic design include the "process school" which is an approach to the subject that is concerned with the actual process of communication; it especially highlights the channels and media through which messages are transmitted and by which senders and receivers encode and decode. Semiotic School on the other hand, is message as a construction of signs which through interaction with receivers, produces meaning; communication as an agent. The process school is like the way in which a message is brought out to society.

Some history on the Whiteboard Animation Video Services Industry

 

Whiteboard animation

Whiteboard animation is a process where a creative story and storyboard with pictures is drawn on a whiteboard (or something that resembles a whiteboard) by artists who record themselves in the process of their artwork. It is used in TV and internet advertising to communicate messages in a unique way.

 

Terminology

 

The term whiteboard animation comes from the process of someone drawing on a whiteboard and recording it. The actual effect is a time-lapse, or sometimes stop-motion. Actual animation is rarely used but has been incorporated. Other terms are video scribing, and animated doodling. These video animation styles are now seen in many variations, and have taken a turn into many other animation styles. With the introduction of software to create the whiteboard animations, the process has many different manifestations of varying quality.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

Animation

 

Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and the illusion of change[Note 1] by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation. Animation can be recorded with either analogue media, a flip book, motion picture film, video tape, digital media, including formats with animated GIF, Flash animation and digital video. To display animation, a digital camera, computer, or projector are used along with new technologies that are produced.

 

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second. Computer animation processes generating animated images with the general term computer-generated imagery (CGI). 3D animation uses computer graphics, while 2D animation are used for stylistic, low bandwidth and faster real time renderings.
