Motion graphics have been a big trend in web design for quite a while now and it's not hard to see why. All that movement is eye-catching and adds some energy to otherwise static content like title screens and transitions, for example.

Despite how slick and complicated they may look, creating motion graphics is actually quite easy with Storyline. In this download, I used drawing shapes and animations to put my own motion graphics spin on a traditional timeline. Built on a single slide, this simple project uses layers and timeline triggers to lead the viewer through a quick, animated tour of key events spanning four decades of history.

View this project in action (note: there's audio in the demo!)

This project is easy to customize with your own event content and color scheme—and there's ample white space to add images or graphics of your own.

Note: The demo uses free music from Bensound.com and a free mouse click sound effect from soundbible.com, but those audio files aren't included in the .story download. This project also uses the free Google fonts Righteous and Oswald

This download will work for folks using Storyline 360, the continuously updated version of Storyline included in Articulate 360. Want to try it out? Get a free 60-day trial of Articulate 360 right here.
