Client Testimonials

“The team at AXS was completely up to the task of making an animation that would be useful to a broad audience, ranging from school-aged children to undergraduate university students. They were very thorough with their research, cross checking details and referring any ambiguities back to us for our academics to resolve.  We’ve ended up with a product that is everything we wanted: clear, accurate, beautiful and interesting.”

“The Ad Board meeting went very well and the feedback on the animated piece was outstanding, even from the biggest and most important critics - who said they had never seen anything that was so well done and presented the topic so perfectly! Thanks again for helping to make this vision a reality for us and for all of the effort that you put forth on this project.”

“AXS developed a series of animations to train clinicians on a new therapeutic device shortly starting worldwide clinical trials. The stepwise instructions for setting up and using the device were clear and intuitive. Plus, working closely with our scientific, engineering, and clinical teams, they created striking visualizations of the technology in action and its therapeutic mechanisms at work within the body. The entire package was beautifully rendered and helped make our training program a success. We have since hired AXS back for another project.”

“Your aesthetic sensibility puts you in a class of your own. Your attention to detail and ability to distill complicated subjects down to their essence is a true gift. Just as important is your excellent service - your patience, thoroughness, and overall problem solving skills. You exceeded our expectations and handled our most difficult requests with grace. At every turn I felt that our needs were being met. Finally, the client is thrilled with the animation. It’s no small feat to integrate the opinions of multiple KOLs and arrive at something that communicates clearly and looks great.”
