WITH A HUMAN TOUCH
THE MAGIC OF traditional animation
There’s no denying that hand drawn animation is hugely effective, tried and tested. After all – it’s been around a long time. It’s the oldest style of animation there is, existing decades before even computers were invented.
Dragonfly produce hand drawn animated videos that are emotionally relevant and will engage with your audience in deeper, more meaningful ways. We can bring unique characters to life, construct an entire universe, create a species of bizarre creatures – show the inner workings of a volcano or the depths of the ocean.

Dragonfly’s animators are artists in the truest sense of the word – they live and breathe in the pursuit of creating beautiful pieces of art that stop audiences in their tracks. There’s nothing more captivating than a truly fascinating painting, and there’s no better way to capture your viewers’ imaginations than through a hand drawn production.
A good business is nothing without great people – and Dragonfly are proud to have some of the industry’s leading illustrators and animators on our team, and they can be on your team too.

TRADITIONAL ANIMATION TECHNIQUE
HAND-DRAWN ANIMATED VIDEO
Everything starts with a sketch and a scribble. A storyboard is the beginning of a visual narrative for your brand.
Beautiful, nostalgic and intricate animations often come out of a hand drawn process. This process is obviously incredibly time consuming; an animator will draw all the assets and every frame by hand. This can be a long and pain-staking process, demanding a huge amount of time and a high level of skill from an animator.
For this reason, hand drawn animations don’t come cheap – or fast. However, if you’re willing to part with the cash and invest your time, hand drawn animations are often some of the most beautiful and striking out there.
WHAT WE DO
Hand Drawn animations introduce a human touch – giving the animation a very organic feel.
A step away from the clinical, plastic-y feel of most digital animations you’ll see all over the web
This is a style that’s been refined over many decades – and it’s stood the test of time.

HAND DRAWN ANIMATION
This video is an example of Dragonfly's best work. The brief from our client was to create a compelling and engaging short film that would effectively convey positive messages about an autism service for children and the transformation in service provision that was being achieved by the service.
READ OUR CASE STUDY >
Produced as part of the government’s ‘Building Schools for the Future’ initiative, Dragonfly was commissioned to create a first-of-its- kind DVD to help primary school children make choices about their transition to secondary school.
The National History Museum hosted National Insect Week each year and in 2014, Dragonfly were asked to produce two animated videos to screen at the event. We decided on a hand drawn approach and a traditional 'text book' style for these animations, something which suited the educational objective.
Dragonfly’s animators created a wonderful underwater world for the SeaLife Centre. The attention to detail and beautiful illustration style really exceeded our expectations.
