2023 Wrap-Up and What's in Store for 2024

Looking back at 2023, we have much to be grateful for. Despite a challenging macroeconomic climate, we forged ahead, introducing new services, innovating with AI, and sharing knowledge with the creative community. Here's a snapshot of what we accomplished (and what's to come!):

Unveiling More Stellar Creative Services

Superside constantly monitors current and emerging trends, so we’re ready with the skills and expertise you need when you need them. In 2023, we expanded our video production offering and launched our three-dimensional (3D) design and augmented reality (AR) services as well as our AI-enhanced creative services. Let's take a look at these advancements.

Expanded video services

Video works. We know it’s true because we see it in action every day. So do the 89% of markets who said they’re happy with the ROI of their videos.

But how does that happiness translate into real-world numbers?

Our data shows ads with video convert at a 30% higher rate than animation-only or static ads. Add in a great-looking human, and that number increases. Add in a puppy 🐶 and you’ve got gold!

We also know video performs best when it’s built into your marketing strategy. That’s why we've honed our video services and now offer:

  • Performance marketing video. Always. Be. Converting. Our team can produce videos to help you drive conversions across your paid campaigns.
  • Social video. Whether it’s TikTok, Instagram or YouTube, we’ve got a global team of organic social video pros to help you keep ahead of the trends (and memes).
  • Brand video. From product demos to testimonials, our team produces video content to help establish and elevate brand identities.

Video project highlight

Three hero, six teaser and nine product videos—approved and developed one and half weeks ahead of schedule. See how we helped SUZANNE KALAN dazzle on TikTok.

New social AR and 3D design services

Now that 3D and AR have graduated from niche to mainstream, Superside helps you provide the immersive experiences audiences crave with:

  • World-facing AR. The creme de la creme of AR! Bring branded digital experiences to the real world with custom filters, portals and more.
  • Front-facing AR. Put that front-facing camera to work with everything from interactive games to fun face filters. (Say that three times fast.)
  • 3D illustrations. Your products aren’t flat. Your illustrations shouldn’t be either.
  • 3D product visualizations. Bring your products to life with 3D. Here’s an example of how we helped Doodle Labs demonstrate their mobile radio technology in an interactive infographic.

New AI-enhanced creative services

We believe AI gives you superpowers. That’s why we’ve jumped in head first to launch our AI-enhanced creative services.

From social media assets and digital ads to illustration and branding, AI design tools can help you quickly generate and experiment with ideas. In fact, our AI creatives complete design projects on average 30%-60% faster by enhancing workflows with these tools.

AI-enhanced creative project highlight

See how EdTech leader, D2L Brightspace added AI to its stock image workflows to produce custom images and illustrations that shine as bright as the sun.

New in 2024: Creative and strategic consulting

You’ve told us you want more support with strategic planning as well as optimizing creative performance. Based on the success of our digital marketing consulting service, in 2024 we’re introducing:

  • Strategic consultation sessions. Speak with one of our Superside industry experts on everything from structuring your digital marketing team to scaling your TikTok content.
  • Creative consultation sessions. Go deep on creative questions with your primary Superside Creative Lead to understand how your creative is performing and how to improve it.

Making the Superside App Even More "Appealing"

We've also been busy behind-the-scenes improving your Superside App experience.

Collaboration is at the core of what we do and the Superside App is the tool that ties everything together from briefing projects to sharing the final assets.

As such, we're committed to making the Superside App as functional and frictionless as possible. Some recent upgrades to highlight include:

  • Explore. A space where you can find inspiration with everything from standout creative to growth hacks. When you see something you like, you can either save it to your wishlist, get started with a pre-templated brief or request a consultation.
  • Shareable links. Work seamlessly with stakeholders who aren't in the app with quick links to relevant pieces.
  • Slack integration. Use Slack in your day-to-day? Now you can stay up to the minute with your Superside projects and notifications.

Empowering Knowledge With Creative Resources

Knowledge is power—which is why we create resources and provide opportunities to help you further fuel growth and seize opportunities.

In 2023 we held our /PROMPT, Standout and Ignite virtual summits and published go-to guides on video, AR and making smart marketing bets.

To get all the latest Superside news and updates:

And of course, Superside customers can also bring their questions to their dedicated Project and Success Managers who can tap into our global network of creative experts to find the answers.

Soar to New Heights in 2024

As an extension of your team, Superside expands creative possibilities by making the entire process easy and efficient—as well as connecting you with a wealth of world-class talent.

We’re so proud of what we accomplished in 2023, but we know we can do more—and we can’t wait to share it all with you!

PS: Remember to drink more water like you promised yourself you would. 😉
