Aardman’s adeptness of engaging audiences with compelling stories told through animation, has earned the company a deserved worldwide reputation. Their award-winning work produces a unique brand of independent film alongside work for broadcast and advertising spots. The studio has had ten Oscar® nominations, and has won four. Peter Lord and David Sproxton began their animating partnership at school. In 1972 they registered the name Aardman Animations. After graduating, they moved to Bristol in 1976 where they created Morph for the children’s programme ‘Take Hart’.
Since then the company has built up an impressive client list, including BBC, Department of Health, Nike, McVities, Kelloggs, Macmillanand Cartoon Network. As the studio’s reputation has grown both in the UK and overseas, so has the demand for its commercials, branded content and digital work.
Continuing to be innovative, entertaining, brilliantly characterised and full of charm, their work reflects the talent, energy and personal commitment of all the people who comprise the Aardman team
