Never worked with a motion graphics designer before? No problem – neither had many of my clients when they first got in touch. Here’s what I can help you with…

Make complex stuff understandable.

My bread and butter: taking complicated or technical info and turning it into easy-to-understand videos.

Reach a wider audience.

All the social media platforms love video. Can’t promise to make you go viral – can help you get seen.

B2B and Internal Comms.

A lot of my work isn’t public-facing. Companies trust me to create content in their style to use everywhere from trade shows to staff training videos.

Best of all, I speak fluent human so all chats are friendly and jargon-free.

A bit about me

That’s me. Looks like I’m pondering something important but it was taken in a café and I’m actually just thinking about cake. I’m Rob Birnie and I’ve been working in the media for over 25 years. I launched Made by DBM in 2015 to help people explain stuff with animated videos. If you’re still reading this it might be because you want to find out more about me so hit the button. You may of course not care. None taken.

Surpassed our expectations

The final animation surpassed our expectations – full of originality and creativity. Using animation was a real departure for our client, but we were both thrilled with the results.

Couldn’t have done it without him

There are many good things about working with Rob – he’s efficient, funny, kind, creative – the list goes on! He’s really supported the Conscious Leaders Podcast and I couldn’t have done it without him. He creates grabbing animations and edits like a wizard! Thanks Rob – you’re a star!

Everything’s on time and on budget

Some people prefer watching a video to reading text which makes Rob’s animations invaluable to my clients. He recently took a client’s complex SaaS technology and concisely animated its features and benefits in an engaging series of brief videos. And Rob is a pro; everything arrives on time and on budget.

Extremely stress-free

Launching such a unique product to the market has been tricky at times but Rob made translating the unique benefits of the RBR Legflow into clear and understandable animations extremely stress-free. He understood how to communicate the product and help raise awareness of Thrombosis with his animations.

Brilliant to work with

I worked with Rob on some social media videos for my business. He was just brilliant to work with, had great communication skills and took my scrap of an idea and turned it into something even better than I imagined! I would not hesitate to work with him again.

Magical powers!

I can’t recommend Rob highly enough. He completely understood what I was trying to achieve and then used his magical powers to create something really special for us.

RBR Legflow

This video made an appearance on Dragons’ Den. Not bad for a project that started with a can of baked beans (keep reading, it’ll make sense…)

In many cases, and this is one, it’s much more effective to make a series of short videos than one long one.

The Harpur Trust

A 450-year-old true story involving a bloke from Bedford who became Lord Mayor of London but never forgot his roots.

Rocket Science

You can’t beat working for good people who are doing good things. I really enjoyed helping Rocket Science explain how they help businesses tackle UK poverty.
