Project Description


Two international creative awards, the Communicator Award and Davey Award, presented to Ocreative honors an online animated video created for Ken Cook Co.’s Smartfolio, a document management system with an accompanying app. Smartfolio provides content management and collaboration for business through secure file sharing and document syncing for direct access online and off.

The Ken Cook Co. approached Ocreative to create a new exciting video which promotes the advantages of using their Smartfolio manage and share files effectively with marketing, sales, and service team members. During the storyboarding phase of the project, we decided the promotional video would relate a person to the daily challenges of keeping files updated and consistent across all branches of an organization.

Ocreative drew the story’s characters and meticulously animated them over custom illustrated backgrounds. We wrote the script, recorded it, and overlaid it with an upbeat tune. The final video accomplishes the goals of explaining the values of Smartfolio software while building excitement for the brand.
