A Barnsley-based company established to ‘offer clients the full package when it comes to animation and design’ is celebrating its third birthday.
B Animated studio, founded by award-winning graphic designer Laura Blackburn, specialises in creating bespoke 2D animations to promote businesses, services, and products.
Founder and creative director Laura has over 15 years’ experience as a graphic designer and set up the business to offer clients the full package when it comes to animation and design.
B Animated is based in the town’s Digital Media Centre on County Way and past clients include Manchester City Council, Welcome to Yorkshire, Barnsley Premier Leisure, and Enterprising Barnsley.
Laura said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating our third birthday! Since setting up the business in 2018, we’ve gone from strength to strength and have worked with some great clients.
“We’ve been involved in some amazing projects and are proud that work produced by the studio has been used to promote major events, including the Tour de Yorkshire and UCI Road World Championships.
“Graphic design and animation can have many benefits for businesses when used well, so I created B Animated to help companies tap into that potential.
“Our mission is simple – to use our expertise in animation to help businesses get the best results.”
One of B Animated’s most popular client services is the creation of high-quality animated explainer videos, which can explain a product or service in clear and simple terms.
Laura added: “An explainer video is a short, animated video, which helps businesses detail what they can offer more quickly and clearly.
“Animated explainer videos can work particularly well for clients who have something technical they need to communicate, as they break things down into more simple terms.
“Because they are eye-catching and engaging, they are perfect for helping customers to better understand what a business does and what it can do for them.”
Other services offered by the team include the creation of character animation, animated logos and social media graphics – all designed to help brands engage with their audiences and stand out from the competition.
Laura added: “Animation can make a really big impact with an audience, and we love working with our clients to bring their vision to life.
“When it comes to design and animation, we appreciate every client is different, but what never changes is our personal approach.
“Whatever the project, from initial discussions through to creating a storyboard, concept creation and bringing the finished project to life – we are here every step of the way.
“We’ve had a fantastic first three years in business and are now looking forward to building on that in the future.
“There are some exciting plans in the pipeline, so watch this space.”
