Eindhoven municipality commits to clear visual
communication with animated videos from IDS.

For years, we have been helping the Municipality of Eindhoven communicate visually to residents externally, as well as internally to colleagues on a variety of topics. It is often about complex information that is presented a lot more clearly and convincingly through the strong combination of image and sound. Because: reading a long chunk of text like this…. nobody feels like doing that! 😉

Why IDS?

Three main reasons to partner with IDS Animation Studio.


With understandable language, clear images, a voice-over and subtitles, the message reaches a wide audience. We consider accessibility in its broadest sense.

Experience with municipalities

Years of experience working for municipalities. So we know what the requirements are in delivering the final product. Can therefore get into the flow of a project faster and have experience working with multiple stakeholders.

Critical thinkers

We don’t just create beautiful animations… we also think critically and advise honestly about the content and always keep the objectives of the animation video in mind.

FAQ / Frequently Asked Questions:

So! You don’t mince words. We like that… 😎

If you’re looking for rock-solid storytelling, super-clean designs, dynamic animations and you want to work with a team of professionals who love what they do, your search is over!

With more than 300 videos under our belt – with clients such as Rabobank, Schiphol Airport, Fedde LeGrand, Samsung, AWVN, the Dutch Government, and many other big and small names – customer satisfaction remains our primary concern. But hey! You don’t have to take our word for it, see above what our clients have to say about our work.

We create animated content that drives your communication and marketing in the short and long term. Prefer to see? Check out some of our best cases.

We base our prices on 2 factors: length of the animation video and complexity of the project.

Therefore, we first ask you to tell us a little about your project. Then our creative team can properly assess your project and provide an appropriate quote.

We did a lot of research on prices in the market and where we stand compared to the competition. We believe we offer the very best value for money. Our prices are mostly lower than other animation agencies, and the quality of our work is higher than most of our competitors Take a look at our portfolio in particular and let the work speak for itself.

What you can count on with us is a seasoned creative team that always delivers high quality custom work. So no templates, no “just pick a puppet from our database” and no standard animation packages.

Please contact us for a price estimate. Tell a bit about your project, send along a relevant animation example (whether or not from our portfolio) and possibly your available budget. We think with you, and you will receive a price estimate in your mailbox within one business day.

Of course, that depends on a few factors: how many revisions are coming, how quickly we can move (sometimes it has to go past a lot of people internally before we get feedback) and how big the size of the project is. On average, you should think about 4 to 6 weeks for a one-minute (2d) animation video.

A fantastic icing on the cake that we love to offer to all of our clients, and which sets us apart from other studios, is that with IDS, you always get all of the designs we develop for the animation video included for free. You can use those however you want: print, newsletters, website, you name it.

To illustrate, see also what we have developed for AG5 in recent years in addition to several beautiful animation videos.

Whether you already have a complete script lying around, or don’t have a single word on paper yet, we move with you. With us, you always have input on every step of the process, including the concept and script stages. Our copywriters will help you strike the right chord in your story. We can certainly conjure up a strong piece of storytelling, but you have to be happy with it at the end of the day, and, of course, your target audience has to feel engaged as well.

Together we set out to create a beautifully animated story that will last for years.

In short, we develop a script, the illustrations, animations and audio. For a detailed explanation of our process and your role in it, check this page.

Depending on your goals, you can of course post the video online on your website, on your youtube or vimeo channel, and on your social media channels. And of course, our animation videos are wonderful to use as TV advertising. In addition, consider any trade shows where your company can be found. You can also enrich your content such as newsletters and blogs with animated videos.

We can advise and support you on how to optimally place and distribute your animation videos.

On average, an online animated video explaining a product or service should take no more than 1 minute. This is a good rule of thumb and has to do with your target audience’s online attention span when it comes to these types of videos. The other great advantage of this length is that it forces you to get to the essence of your story in about 130 words.

Therefore, always leave out unnecessary information, and in this way ensure that the message comes across a lot more powerfully. Every second counts!

Absolutely. Pas de problème. ¡Desde luego! Aber natürlich!

We work with many native speakers, both for translations of the script for voice-over or subtitles. We also have many contacts with native voice-over professionals. We tailor the project completely to your needs and goals.
