How we work

Our illustration work has spanned industries, audiences and styles

Research & discovery

It all starts with a conversation. Once we’ve discovered the message that you’re trying to communicate, our design team will work with you to discover the most appropriate style and approach for your illustration or animation.

The creative process

Starting with a sketch, our illustration team with create draft layouts and storyboards for your project for you to review. Once refined and approved, we’ll move onto putting the finishing touches to the artwork ready for you to share with the world.


Once completed, the design would be shared with you as either a print-ready PDF or MP4/GIF. If you require the artwork in another format the please let us know and we’ll be happy to accommodate wherever possible. If you would like our support with print production of your illustration then this is absolutely something we can help you with - from brochures and reports to banners and wall murals, we have specialist teams that deliver quality results time and time again.

Frequently asked questions

How much does an animation cost?

How many revisions are included?

Up to three rounds of revisions as standard within our design contracts. Additional changes after this point are evaluated and estimated based on their complexity (we will never charge you extra without permission).

Who owns the IP to my illustration once completed?

For illustrations, you will own the IP to the artwork once the final bill has been cleared. However, you will only have the rights to use the artwork as originally intended (subject to our terms and conditions) - if you would like the ability to use the illustration for other purposes or to sell the artwork then please contact the studio for an estimate to be granted unlimited artwork rights.

How long does the design process take?

Timeframes can vary from project to project but as a rough guide the process typically takes between 2-5 weeks from brief to completion depending on the complexity of the artwork.

No problem, we have many overseas clients and meet regularly via video call. All estimates and bills are provided in GBP and can be paid via bank transfer or credit card.

How do you bill for a project?

After a design contract has been agreed we will send over a deposit invoice for between 25-50% of the project fee (subject to requirements). The remaining balance will be billed upon completion with our standard 30 day payment terms.
