Happy new financial year 🎉

Now we’re half way through the one to the nine, it’s a good time to talk voice over trends. Here are the most in-demand styles for this year so far.

Well for me anyway.

For commercial voice overs (television, radio, cinema and online) here’s my top 5:

  1. 👋🏻 friendly / conversational
  2. 🤸🏼‍♀️ playful
  3. 💋 enticing / alluring
  4. ☀️ warm / welcoming
  5. 🤱🏼 nurturing


While the corporate world of voice over is a little different. Here’s my top 5 styles for explainer videos, eLearning, and telephony voice overs:

  1. 🌱 natural / not ‘salesy’
  2. 🏆 inspiring
  3. 📊 confident / credible
  4. 🖋 eloquent
  5. 💼 professional


When booking your voice over, don’t be afraid to get all emotional and describe it like you mean it damn it. Here’s a great example from a recent project:

Light and inspiring and not too salesy. Measured, not too fast.
