Evaluation Criteria for 3D Illustration and Animation

The independent authority on search vendors, bestwebdesignagencies.com, evaluates and ranks the best 3D Illustration and Animation companies and agencies in order to identify the companies that provide the highest quality 3D servces with a range of price points and visions.

Our rigorous evaluation process identifies service providers that integrate strong 3D animation technology into various environments for use on the web and in other collateral. We talk with customers of 3D illustration and animation companies to better understand their needs and requirements to reflect those in our evaluations.

bestwebdesignagencies identifies companies through five key areas of evaluation: Project Analysis, Animation Quality, Design Quality, Creative Collaboration, and Technical Support.

We aim to understand the processes that each company utilizes to better understand the project through project analysis. Our evaluation covers the processes used to identify the client's needs and requirements and which services or styles would be most effective for each project.

Our evaluation of animation quality focuses on various cuts and the final production of animation work provided to clients of the service provider. We evaluate the clarity of the animation compared to the promised result.

The design quality from a two and three dimensional standpoint is evaluated through comparisons to works provided by other companies. Usage of colors, motions, balance, and other various criteria are weighed in.

Creative collaboration covers the amount of time spent communicating with the client in order to create a final product that is acceptable by all parties with a high level of quality and customization.

Technical support is measured through the general support processes available to each customer. The ability for the service provider to handle support for all clients is essential to the service provider.
