I'm an animator, illustrator and owner of a small creative agency based in the UK. We produce bespoke, high quality 2D animated videos, motion graphics and illustration. We don't use templates or stock imagery and create everything from scratch so it's tailored to each client's brief.

Service Description

I'm passionate about helping people communicate their message through the medium of animation. So at my agency we donít just produce designs, we work with our clients to find out what their visual communication needs are, create a brief then we meet that brief to solve their problem.

This means I work on every animation and illustration project personally along with any local script writers, music producers, voice over artists and other animators that a project may require.

We work with clients closely at every stage of production to ensure the video meets their communication needs....

1. Script
2. Voice over
3. Storyboards
4. Concept art and style samples
5. Illustrations and graphics for the animation
6. Animation production
7. Custom music / sound effects composition and production
8. Technical help with video file delivery and use

Some of the organisations I have worked on projects with include Vodafone, Microsoft 365, WAN IFRA (The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers), Great Ormond Street Hospital, ASDA, Derby and District RSPCA, Derby's QUAD cinema and gallery plus several UK Universities.

I have also supplied animation and illustration to local, national and international design agencies and video production companies.
