Inside the Company

Founded in 2010, Animade has been “sharing joy” for over a decade. It revealed a bold rebrand in 2020, representing the personality and culture of the company and its ‘Animaders’.

Mission and Values

On a mission to make the world a bit more characterful, Animade’s purpose is to “share the joy”. Passion and curiosity are at the heart of the studio, with the team ensuring that their creative community is supported through openness, honesty, and friendliness.

At Animade, everyone is encouraged to explore new ways of doing things through play. In addition to client projects, time for play gives team members the space to learn, explore and, most importantly, have fun.

Innovation also plays a big part in the company culture, and Animade is excited to continue exploring the ever-expanding areas of characterful content that can be created today.

Culture and Benefits

Animade puts its people first; prioritising the working culture to ensure that its core values are instilled in the day-to-day. This includes protecting a healthy work-life balance, by accommodating people’s different needs through flexible working and by avoiding overtime wherever possible.

The team’s dedicated ‘culture captains’ plan events that range from quizzes and film nights, to book clubs, and summer fun days. Plus, each team member is assigned a budget that they can invest into their wellbeing, learning and development.

Entry-Level Opportunities

The Animade team are passionate about providing opportunities to aspiring creatives. They often collaborate with universities by sharing knowledge on all things animation. Animade also offer internships – with many interns progressing to join the team (which is how some of the senior creatives began their own journeys). Animade’s most recent addition to the team was hired via the Kickstart scheme, which connects talented young people with opportunities in the creative, cultural or tech sectors.

New joiners are welcomed with a fun and informative onboarding presentation as part of the induction process, which is an opportunity to learn more about the company. They have 1:1s with all the team including senior leadership, and are also assigned an existing Animader as a ‘buddy’ to help guide them through their first weeks.
