Motion graphics stuff is highly complicated and require pure artistic skills. On the other hand, you don’t need to be an artist to get your graphics work done. You can either hire someone for the job or simply ‘Do it Yourself’ to save some bucks.
Finding a local studio or a freelance artist is a good idea but we are talking about the easy ways. The most easy way to find information and services is World Wide Web.
You can get your work done at the comfort of your home. Moreover online services are less expensive and still delivers quality/professional work.
Hiring someone for Motion Graphics Work online
There are number of services on the internet where you can easily hire an artist and get your work done. For Motion Graphics, Envato studio is an amazing destination.
Envato studio is a simple, safe and secure way to connect with hand-picked designers and developers to get your Motion Graphics work done.
This is how Envato Studio works:
- Find the talent you need: Compare prices, portfolios, community recommendations and more to select the Talent you are most excited to work with. If you have a specific question, simply send them an enquiry.
- Supply your brief: Provide a job brief for the Talent to review. At this point Envato Studio takes payment, which is held until the job is completed and you are happy with the outcome.

Fiverr is another marketplace for online services and tasks beginning at a cost of $5 per job performed, from which it gets its name.
It is very easy to get any kind of graphics work done at fiverr, though the list of job categories offered is huge. You just need to browse for an artist, buy or order a gig and get the job done.
Currently, Fiverr lists more than three million services on the site that range between $5 and $500.
Do It Yourself (DIY)
Instead of hiring someone else for the task, you can ‘Do it Yourself‘ with Motion Graphics Templates.
If you are already an After Effects or Apple Motion user, you must be familiar with pre-created templates. They help you create amazing Motion Graphics without starting from the scratch.
Simply modify these templates and render out your project – ‘Piece of Cake’, but you still need some experience with the software.
If you plan to follow the DIY method, I recommend purchasing a template from Videohive. It is by far the best marketplace for After Effects Templates and other Motion Graphics products.
Videohive is a part of Envato marketplace and they believe in Qualitative approach rather than Quantitative. All files are created by professionals which are super easy to understand and edit. Their templates even includes tutorial files and videos to help you get started.
You can even get other media for your project such as Royalty free sound effects, music, 3d models for 3ds max and cinema 4d, photoshop elements and more.
Another DIY source for Motion Graphics work is Motion Elements. It is a Singapore based online marketplace for Asia-focused digital artists.
At Motion Elements, you can save time and be creative by buying modular and high quality elements.
They offer After Effects Templates, Apple Motion Templates, Stock Footage, Royalty Free audio, 3D models, etc at very affordable prices.
Apart from the above mentioned ways and resources, you can go through the search engines and find other Motion Graphics services to fulfil the requirements of your projects.
