“A picture is worth a thousand words”. You might have heard this saying before. Let me add one thing as a substituent to this “A video is worth a million words”. When I was in school, my teachers told me to connect the topics with visuals so that I would not forget them. Yeah, visuals create good impact on our minds. A poorly crafted video can ruin everything, though. When you have to explain something-your project, company, an idea or anything-, the best way is presenting the same as a video. Being a non-graphic designer, you may find it difficult to create convincing explainer videos. Don’t worry! I have something to cheer you up.
