At First to Draw, we are dedicated to whiteboard videos, also known as whiteboard animations, scribe videos and animated doodling. Whatever you call them, we help you design them for one purpose ……. to stand out from the competition.
Whatever your industry, from education and healthcare, to technology and charities. Whether you need a highly engaging video for customer retention, explaining what you do, training your staff, fundraising, or crowdfunding campaign, we will create a quality, high definition video to match your brief and your budget!
They can be fun, intelligent, and entertaining, in a way that encourages people to share them, and make them go viral.
Our videos will remain on their mind after the viewing process is over. Isn’t that what its all about ?
We now offer a standard, and a premium range of videos, which can be viewed in our portfolios. The standard range uses hand-drawn images from our library, whilst the premium range uses unique hand-draw images from scratch.
Premium video – How to Thrive is an organisation that teaches resilience skills to adults, so that they can pass on those skills to children and young people. The video is in a style made famous by the R.S.A.(Royal Society of Arts) in the U.K. A YouTube search for RSAnimate will reveal their videos.
Standard video – Video plays a large part in improving ranking in the search engines. Content is the most important ranking factor for Google, and video is seen as a simple, proven, cost effective solution to ranking higher than the competition. Including a transcript of the audio adds further findability and adds futher relevance in search requests.
Standard video – A personal trainer wanted to make more of an impact on Social Media sites. She wanted a two minute video which explained to busy people how easy it is to get the support they need. She used the video to great effect on You Tube and all of the social media channels.
Premium video – The British Wheel of Yoga wanted an informative yet compelling way to promote their training courses. After they placed a world-wide invitation to tender, they chose us as their preferred supplier. Here’s what Paul Fox, the Chair of BWY said. “Fantastic. We really love the video. First To Draw provided an excellent service to us throughout.
Why choose First to Draw?
There’s loads to choose from out there, so why us?

First To Draw provided an excellent service to us throughout. From initial contact to creating the script and viewing the storyboard, First To Draw made sure we would get the best possible video and we are delighted with the final product. Many thanks for your help throughout this process.
Lucy BaileyHead / How to Thrive
We knew we wanted a different and interesting way of getting across our message, but had never ventured into the world of animation before and did not know what to expect. First to Draw supported us every step of the way, setting out a clear process, staying in touch and guiding us to deliver a unique and impressive video. We are delighted with the result, we have a creative, engaging and meaningful animation that we can’t wait to share. It has been a pleasure to work with First to Draw and look forward to the next creation!
First assignment - An extremely thorough and talented professional. Prior to our meeting he took time to research not only my company, but also my industry and my competitors to create the best product possible It has been a pleasure working with you. Your expertise and the quality of your work has been unmatched by other designers. Thanks again for the work and I look forward to working with you in the future.

"I found the First To Draw team to be very responsive to my needs and professional at all times whilst delivering an excellent video for my company. Paul and the team turned the project around very quickly and having captured my requirements, produced an initial draft that was 100% what I wanted, first time!"
Second assignment - After reviewing sample work from several illustrators I decided to hire First To Draw for a series of videos for a new website I was building. In addition to creating high quality videos, their team took time to understand my company and my industry. They did an amazing job taking my script and creating a video that was exactly what I had in mind. Not only did they exceed my expectations but I routinely get compliments on the quality of the videos. -Matthew

Paul and his team did an amazing job on my video. It turned out better than I could have imagined. The whole process was very simple on my part and Paul kept me updated every step of the way to make sure I loved the final outcome. I received the video and immediately posted it on social media. It got a ton of views, likes, and shares. The best part is I got a sale from it the very next morning! I found myself spending a lot of time explaining how my coaching program works and this video helps automate the process. Thank you Paul and team.

Having spoken to a number of providers no one took the time of explaining & advising like Paul at First2Draw. His team worked really closely with me, gave me options, delivered exactly what I wanted, all within a tight deadline. An absolute pleasure to work with such professionals. I highly recommend them & will use again.
Jen CelerierMarketing Director / ElectricitySmart
Love, love, love it!!! Thanks Paul and Kirsty from all of us, the video rocks and you have been a joy to work with. WOW, it is JUST what we wanted and each time we watch it we are blown away. All of the drawings are perfect and the voiceover and delivery second to none. We are so impressed.

"Our Doctors think that it's great."
We use 100% custom made images
We draw, by hand, all of our images. No clip art, and no templates, and all images created are just for your video alone. This makes you stand out from the crowd. It makes the video work for you and what you want to achieve.
Videos can be made in any language
There is no language barrier here at First to Draw. We can create your video in any language you fancy. To be honest we have never produced one in Mandarin or Cantonese, but look forward to the challenge.
Videos are all in high definition
All video output is in high definition. With state-of-the-art software we can deliver in a variety of sizes and formats to suit your use. Your colleagues and friends will want to have a look at it too. We hope that you will allow us to put it on our site.
Best quality at the lowest cost
When you have finished shopping around, please compare like with like. Are you getting your own images ? Is everything included in prices quoted ? We offer highest quality at the best price. No nasty surprises.
We will prepare compelling scripts
No script ? Not a problem. Script and copy writing is a huge part of the video. We will provide a professionally produced script for your approval. Amendments by you are welcomed.
We will produce your voiceover
Your video will be accompanied by music, a voiceover, or both. It may have added sound effects. Whatever the need, we can handle it. We use only experienced artists specialising in this field. We will, of course, provide you with a choice. Any music will be free of any copyright.
Keep you informed at every stage
We are pretty good at “hand holding” at all stages in the process. This is important, as this process will be a new experience for most of you. We guarantee you’ll have nearly as much fun as us watching it come to life.
We love what we do – You matter
Here at First to Draw we are totally devoted to providing you with added value. We thoroughly love what we do, and this is reflected in our output. We love working work with companies like yours from start to finish. We are always there after your video has “gone live.” We don’t just forget about you once you have the video.
