Marketing infographics for blog | Simple yet appealing and explaining

There is an upcoming blog on software. Link here.

the guy uses very simple;e yet appealing infographics, which don’t seem to be built from popular software such as canvas, but rather some simple tool, may be some white board(I have no experience with digital white boards).

I am producing some links:

Link No. 1
Link No. 2
Link No. 3

Does anyone have experience with what he might be using to make such kinds of stuff?

The “hand drawn” look of those graphics could be achieved using a pen and tablet input device, such as a Wacom Tablet, used in any Paint application.
These give a very natural feel to creating graphics that is similar to using traditional pens and paint on paper.

Hello there, Extending the discussion. The Internet is very big and there is a lot of software. Animation is not my field. I encountered this video on YouTube. What Kind of software will be used in making such explanatory animations?

Is it Blender or Adobe or some other tools out there that can help make such explanatory videos? The particular style is not restricted. This animation is a part of Video Editing or Video Editing is completely a different skill?

Thank you so much.

I doubt it is Blender, that is a 3D modeling and animation application, so unlikely to be used for this kind of 2D animation.
I could not tell you exactly which application was used for it though, it’s anyone’s guess.
I didn’t watch the whole thing, but what I saw was not so much animated images, but animated “drawing on” of still images, which is a form of animation itself.
There are method for acheiving this effect. One is rotoscoping, which is to paint each individual frame. In this instance you may paint the whole picture first, then rotoscope an animated mask to reveal the outlines, then another for the fills.
Another way available in some applications is the ability to keyframe the stroke of the outlines. This saves the process of having to paint every frame, you just set the frame where the stroke begins to draw and the frame where it completes. Though you will need to do for every line. You may then use an animated mask (which may be keyframed) to reveal the fill.
As for the actial software, there are probably many out there for 2D animation. For this kind of work, it could be done in a compositing application. Again there will be many out there. The main compositor I have experience with is Fusion, (not to be confused with Autodesks 3D modeling app or the HDR tonemapping app of the same name). I first used it back in the mid '00s when it was “Eyeon Fusion” but now it’s the compositing module within Black Magic’s DaVinci Resolve. The good news it, there is a free version and it’s very impressive for a free software, but it is a resource hog, you need a decent spec computer to run it.
So that is probably what I would use for this, simply because I know it’s capable of it, I have experience of using it and it’s already installed in my computer. Though if you are not experienced in this field, you may face a steep learing curve. But there may be simpler tools out there which maybe offer more in the way of automation.
