Watch how we make animations

Hello. We are an award winning animation studio that make handcrafted, quality, custom explainer animations and motion graphics.

We help to explain, educate and entertain through the medium of animation.

Our UK animation studio is based in Derby in the East Midlands, though we work with organisations all over the world. Our studio was set up in 2012 and since then we have created animations for the Peak District National Park, Derby City Council, Channel 4, Vodafone, Microsoft 365, UK Universities, numerous charities, small businesses and creative agencies. Our animation studio has the experience and systems in place to work with clients locally and remotely.

Each of our videos is illustrated and animated individually for each client by our UK-based studio team. As we don’t use stock images, animation templates or library music, you can be sure all the content of your animation is unique to you, and won’t be seen anywhere else.

What our clients say

Mair Perkins were able to provide another top quality service to us on this second project and we were absolutely delighted with their creative input which has resulted in a stunning animation that delivers the exact message we wanted. 

Danny Lucas, Executive Chairman & Managing Director, Lucas UK

I worked with Mair over several months to produce a 2 minute science outreach animation about mucus. Mair clearly laid out the different phases of project and their cost. She was very inclusive in the creative process, making requested changes rapidly. It was nice to feel her excited and invested in the project. Communicating with Mair has also been a pleasure. This project was managed only via email, which is a feat in itself given that it involved collaborators in Sweden, the UK, and the USA. In short, I highly recommend Mair for your animation projects.
