NES Star Animation

Bringing learning to life for the health sector through contemporary illustration and motion graphics.


Health & Wellbeing Animation

STAR is a web-based learning system used by NHS Education for Scotland to train frontline medical staff. When NHS Education for Scotland asked us to create new learning modules, our approach began by researching and presenting contemporary styles of illustration and animation.

After establishing the look and feel we began storyboarding to get a feel for how we might bring the complex subjects to life, and to get a sense of the duration, pace, and flow of the narrative. Next, we produced design concepts with a distinct illustration style.

Next came illustration, graphic design, and animation. We recorded a draft voiceover to lay behind the draft animation, and from this adjusted the storyboard and script before the final voiceover recording. Then it was back to Senior Designer Brian to fine-tune the scenes and transitions.

eLearning content is creatively and technically challenging, but our designers did a fantastic job. However, the glory must be shared with our producers, who scripted content whilst creatively directing and managing a complex schedule with gruelling time constraints.
