Premium 2D Animation Services: Bringing Your Stories to Life

2D Animation

Today’s world is overflowing with information, data and that dreaded word…content. The difference between being remembered, or forgotten, is a matter of seconds.

Attention spans are constantly dwindling and the way in which information is consumed has shifted. Hint: no one reads anything anymore. You probably won’t make it to the bottom of this page, but don’t worry, there are lots of images and videos!

Being experienced in 2D animation doesn’t just mean we’ve got time behind us. Whilst we’ve got 20 years combined experience delivering 500+ projects, it also means we know what can go wrong, and we know how to mitigate against that. That’s why we’ve been ISO 9001 certified; we’re quality assured.

2D animation ultimately means we can make anything, there’s no limitations by cameras, weather or set design. We’re only limited by our imaginations. Ensuring we channel these infinite creative possibilities to hit your brief, is where our experience really comes in.

Why Choose 2D Animation?

When it comes to storytelling through video, 2D animation has a lot of benefits compared to ‘live-action’ video (things filmed with cameras)

Firstly, it doesn’t age. You don’t risk filming something or someone that’s no longer relevant to your story.

Secondly, there isn’t the same language barrier. We often work in multiple languages, meaning you can speak your audience’s voice, the world over.

There are lots of other benefits, namely, cost-effectiveness when compared to hiring locations, actors, equipment, crew, even catering.

It also means your story can be brought to life through characters, scenarios and narrative arcs, making your messaging more relatable and memorable. Then it’s made consistent to your brand adhering to brand guidelines for colour, designs and themes.

Our 2D Animation Services

Our 2D animation services to help bring your story from idea to audience:

Custom Character Design

By utilising strategic characters, your story will resonate further with your audience. We’ve created characters that are shapes (like circles, squares and pyramids), and we’ve created characters with faces that walk, cycle and run.


Creating a storyboard allows you to see your animation step-by-step. You’ll understand exactly what’s happening on screen, along with any narration and animation notes so that you can follow the story as closely as possible before it’s brought to life through 2D animation.

Animation & Motion Design

This is where your story shines as elements move and guide you through the narrative. We strategically animate using years of experience to ensure eye-balls are where they should be, and fine-tune the careful balance between overwhelmed and underwhelmed.


A famous director once said a great film is 51% visual and 49% audio. Post-production is a crucial stage to add music, sound effects and a final touch of polish to colours and textures.

The Process: How We Work

By working with an ISO 9001 certified company, you benefit from a rock solid process. This is particularly relevant when working with 2D animation, as the creative potential is unlimited.

1. Initial Consultation

The journey starts with an initial consultation to understand your vision, objectives and requirements. There’s also a detailed creative brief to capture every detail of your project – don’t worry, we often work with our clients to help complete the briefs.

2. Concept & Design

Once your project is properly briefed, the timelines and budget is agreed (and fixed!), then we move into the production stage. This includes creative direction, styleframes, script writing, storyboards and finally the 2D animation.

3. Review & Revisions

Throughout the production stage, the project is assessed against the brief to ensure your problem is being creatively solved. There are various check-ins ranging from key milestones to weekly alignments depending on your requirements, but you’re always kept in the loop to ensure the story matches your vision.

4. Final Delivery

The final deliverables are made depending on your requirements, any language translation is applied and your story is ready to be launched to the world.

Tricks Studio did everything from the storyboard to complete delivery, including the scripts. The creative treatments were incredibly well translated and executed; they were brilliant

2D animation is a powerful, strategic marketing tool that can transform how your audience perceives your message.

It has a unique ability to capture attention, narrate compelling stories, and simply complex processes, products and services. Unlike live-action, which is limited to reality, or 3D animation, which is often higher in cost and longer in production time, 2D animation gives you the freedom to go beyond boundaries, articulate complex ideas with simplicity and engage your audience with memorable communication.
