Motion, color, and typography have a big impact on the mood and tone of your video. These design ingredients can either bolster your message or distract from it. For instance, a fast-paced video ad may be perfectly suited for grabbing attention on the newsfeed, but would seem out of place as a boardroom presentation or training video. That’s why we’ve hooked you up with nine Spark Video themes that convey a wide range of communication goals and moods. From the retro-inspired, playful Mega to the subtle, soothing Sage, each theme is crafted by our motion designers so you can transform your content in one tap and keep your focus on creating the most compelling message possible. To help you find your video’s theme personality, check out the trailers below then pop into Spark Video and automagically transform your video in one tap.
Elevate: Your Trusty Branded Theme
The Elevate theme is the most dynamic and adaptable theme in Spark’s arsenal. It features a classic, clean design and dynamic transitions designed to keep eyes engaged and focused on your message. Elevate is also your branded theme. You can quickly customize it to fit your brand with your own logo, fonts, and colors, using Spark’s paid features. The movement and transitions feature simple swipes and would work well to highlight any message.
Tidal: For When Text Is the Star of the Show
Most people watch social media videos without the sound, meaning making them readable, yet still engaging is key to ensuring your message translates. That’s where the Tidal theme comes in. It treats copy like the star that is with an animated text bar that automagically adjusts to your content. Sliding transitions and an interesting split screen treatment add to the allure.
