2D Surreal Animation Examples

Welcome to NERD! We love the idea of toying with 2D style animation. We have a wide range of films in a range of 2D styles and also fiercely talented NERDS that can bring your creative concept to life in a stylised and organically elegant way. Below are just a few illustrative visual styles and film examples that range in techniques. We are flexible in our workflows and approach to ensure highest creative quality output on each one of our carefully crafted films. If you like the visual style of one spot or illustration and technique from another we can bring the two together- so feel free to pick & mix. We love to team up.

Our team of fiercely talented Directors, Illustrators and Producers from all backgrounds and walks of life bring our similarities and differences together under one roof to bring to life creative concepts that exceed client expectations for every brief. Our collaborative approach is not something we practice internally only, NERDs work closely with our clients too, from the early development stages of the production process to create a bespoke look & feel for the brand, something instantly recognisable!

NERD is a creative production company representing a diverse range of hand-picked directors and illustrators, crafting live-action, animation, mixed-media and illustration styles for TVCs, online content, OOH/DOOH, feature films, events, conferences, broadcast and print to name a few platforms.

We strongly believe that nurturing talent and championing diversity are the key ingredients to producing powerful visuals that stand out,engage and communicate with real people across the world. That's why we are active diversity & inclusion advocates, constantly seeking, nurturing and empowering young talent, female talent and talent from under-represented backgrounds changing and reshaping our industry to be a more diverse and inclusive one, today, tomorrow and for future creative generations to come!
