Expert Character Animation: Breathing Life into Your Brand

Animated characters have the incredible ability to create an emotional bond with viewers, enhancing brand animation and driving engagement.

Our creative agency specialises in animation, motion design and branding, and over the last decade has developed a proven track record for award-winning character animation. We have earned praise for the work we’ve produced for Tate & Lyle, Brooks Macdonald, Happy Socks, Climate Outreach, and many more.

Partnership is at the core of what we do. We support businesses and organisations, helping to transform their brand messaging through engaging character storytelling.

Character Design: The Art of Crafting Digital Assets

We are committed to building partnership relationships with our clients and take a personalised approach to character design. Our philosophy of design-led storytelling is born from our belief that every brand is unique and there is no one-creative-size-to-fit-all. Every character or digital asset we create is bespoke and aligns perfectly with your brand identity.

From the initial briefing and throughout the design phase, our skilled team works closely with clients to develop characters and their environment that resonate with their target audience, resulting in relatable animated content that is hard to forget.

From Concept to Animation: Bringing Characters to Life

Having a well-reasoned creative content strategy is essential to our creative process. It isn’t enough to produce attractive animation, the films we make must deliver on our client’s campaign objectives.

Our Creative Partners work collaboratively with clients to understand their vision and goals and feed what we learn into the character concepts that support their overall business goals. Our meticulous attention to detail and strategic approach means that our animated explainers hit the mark visually, emotionally, and strategically.

We offer guidance throughout the process to help you get the best creative output and deliver an outstanding campaign.

Character Animation and Storytelling: Creating Emotional Connections

Animated storytelling is a powerful tool that enables businesses to share their narrative in a captivating and creative manner. Humans are hardwired to engage and remember information more readily when told by way of a relatable story. Central to our award-winning character animations are characters audiences identify with.

Content Creatures’ animated content does more than entertain but also educates and inspires, to solidify the bond between your brand and its viewers.
