I worked with Phill on designing marketing literature for one role, and on website design for another. In both instances he was professional, imaginative and very helpful. The work was completed on time and on budget, and to a very high standard More...

Phil and Animotion UK are wonderful to work with. Phil has a great sense of design and a wonderfully emotive vision. He puts his heart into his work and it really shows. Phil worked with me on two projects and in both he led with a kind, guiding hand, all the while listening to my vague pronouncements of what he should do. Both projects resulted in excellent product at a fair price and timely delivered. I will continue to work with Animotion on all my projects. Couldn't recommend more highly. More...

DDS Media designed my business logo last year. They took my very vague brief and turned it into exactly what I needed to change my branding to reflect where my business is headed. Would highly recommend Phill for any graphic design work. More...

Phill was great to work with from start to finish. He took time to understand our objectives, our brand as well as our proposition and made great suggestions based on that. Through his expertise he was able to add value throughout and ensured we got what we wanted and needed from the animation. The whole process was very collaborative and we were able to contribute to the creative direction at all times. We are delighted with the result and look forward to working with Phill again in the future. More...

Phil at DDS Media is amazing and has done a fab job at rebranding my photography business. He designed me a simple, yet highly classy logo that reflects my style, both personally and professionally, perfectly. I cant wait to get to work with Phil on the design of all my business literature and material and will never go anywhere else. Thank you Phil! More...

Phil at DDS Media has created a powerful and striking image for my men's roller derby team as part of Southern CoEd Roller Derby, which has helped to promote our brand locally, nationally, and indeed internationally. It is more than I could have hoped, and cannot praise his skill, service and product more highly. More...

Phil at DDS Media produced our league logo and the men's team logo in August 2015. We were really impressed at his professionalism despite our complicated brief and the amount of reworking he did as required! The finished designs were really well received and were intrinsic in our league rebranding last season. We would definitely recommend his services! More...

Q&A

Our creative process varies depending on the type of project we are completing for you. The basic across the board process looks a little like this...

Initial discussions (brief, style, message etc)
Pre-Production (Script, storyboard, style testing, asset creation)
Production (Filming, animation, design period)
Post-Production (Editing, Graphics, Music etc)
Final Assessment and changes
Delivery of final assets

First and foremost, we need to know what the end goal and message of the piece will be. This is the main piece of information that will guide pretty much every other aspect of the project. Other information such as, brand guidelines, potential styles and examples of other videos/designs that you like would be super helpful as well.

We all love our jobs because we are lucky enough to be able to work in areas that we would all do in our spare time. Not everyone gets to do that, and for this, we all feel exceptionally lucky. I personally love the variety of projects and clients that we get to work with, meaning that no 2 days are the same.

It was my family. Prior to starting Animotion, I worked in London and that required exceptionally long work and travel hours. This meant that I was barely getting to spend time with my wife and 3 children. Starting Animotion allowed me the flexibility in work that I needed whilst still allowing me to do the job that I love.

We could tell you that we are a dynamic group of creatives, tech heads, disruptors and forward thinkers that love nothing more than a good tech conference, a Kale smoothie, and an Organic Rice Cake. But, that's not us...
In reality, we are a small group of regular people, who have gained years of experience and love what we do. A creative, personal team that has worked on a huge variety of corporate video and design projects for some of the biggest brands in the world and for the sole trader down the street.

It's as simple as that :)
