Create Animated Titles in After Effects

Joshua Noel

Learn how to design animated corporate titles in After Effects for your video production projects.

Whether you are a video producer or an editor, if you work on corporate or explainer videos, you may need to overlay titles to share information that does not come across through dialogue. Corporate titles are a great way to communicate visual information, and they can lend a stylistic touch to your content.

Creating corporate titles is easy, but the design can make or break your project. If you have to share information through overlaid titles, make sure the animation is not distracting and the design flows with your video. The last thing you want is a title that draws attention from your video content. Keep your information short and to the point.

The Keys to Creating Clean Corporate Titles

The following points can help you create effective titles for your videos:

  • Use a clean typeface that is minimalistic and easy to read.
  • If necessary, use two variations of a font style, like “light” and “bold” to highlight specific information.
  • If you work with shape layers, try to use the primary color of your logo.
  • Keep the title and shape animation subtle. “Easy Ease” keyframes work best.
