About Our Craft & Approach
We are a diversity and inclusion led creative production company representing a wide range of hand-picked directors, illustrators and photographers. We craft animation, illustration, live-action, mixed-media, and photography for television, digital, social, editorial and everything in between.
Our fiercely talented artists and highly experienced producers work hand-in-hand with our clients to bring to life instantly recognisable concepts that exceed creative expectations for each one of our carefully crafted bespoke visuals, that we can altogether be proud of.
We pride ourselves in our collaborative and innovative approach to production, from early development stages to delivery.
We’re immensely proud of our talent for regularly winning awards for their work including D&AD, British Animation Awards, The British Arrows, Promax, Creative Circle, London International Awards, Clios, Cannes Lions and many more.
Our mission: Diversity & Inclusion
We advocate diversity and inclusion by championing an innovative and forward-thinking company culture that focuses on constantly seeking, nurturing and empowering young talent, female talent and talent from under-represented backgrounds. We are helping to change and reshape our industry to be a more diverse and inclusive one, today, tomorrow and for future generations to come.
We proudly produce powerful visuals that stand out, engage and communicate with our global audiences in relevant, relatable and authentic ways thanks to our key ethos at NERD: we always seek to create work that empowers viewers and inspires equality and tolerance.
We are shifting our industry towards a more diverse, inclusive and equal future for all.
We are members and supporters of organisations such as Free the Bid, New Blood, Women OWNED and more.
Our seasoned as well as up & coming talent are constantly working together to fight the current diversity statistics. Setting out with the intention and ambition of nurturing and empowering talent from ALL backgrounds, NERD was born.
“I never had female role models in animation and advertising, I also didn’t notice more than a handful of ethnic individuals in senior positions or those that came from ‘non-traditional’ backgrounds. Bearing in mind that I’m all of those things, my inspiration stemmed from many male-dominated meetings and my fondness for craft and filmmaking. Together with our male counter parts - there is no reason why we can't make the industry a more equal one for all talent!" Milana Karaica, Founder
