At a Glance: 2D Animation

2D animation involves bringing motion to flat graphics—any movement added to visuals on a website or mobile app that doesn’t involve 3-dimensional animation. Whether you need an educational “explainer” tool like a video or animated infographic, the artistry of 2D animation is a versatile way to bring life to your project. 2D animation requires a mix of skills, from illustration and graphic design to conceptual skills and knowledge of software like Unity 2D, Adobe After Effects, and Autodesk Maya. With skilled animation, your game, video, or visual tool becomes an engaging experience to entertain users, sell a product, tell a story, or educate potential clients.

A 2D animator on Upwork can create your game or turn your idea into an engaging experience that gets your message, business, or brand across clearly and creatively. 2D animators should have well-honed expertise creating 2D animated graphics with an eye for composition, story arcs, dialogue, and effects like silhouettes and lighting—for everything from videos and games to apps and websites.
