Some of the many outstanding companies we've worked with:
Hiring a large cast of actors costs an arm and a leg. That often makes telling powerfully engaging stories prohibitive. Our animations tell those stories that get people to stick around till the end, using as many actors as the story requires. And if the over 400 characters in our 60+ collections don't do it for you, we can create bespoke characters that will.

We can do it.

THE TELLERS OF STORIES
In the eyes of the consumer, very few things are perceived as unique. However, in that world of sameness, the story you tell about a product or service has endless potential to be exceptional, making the value offered appear extraordinary.
The characters that tell those stories turbo-boost that perception of uniqueness. We have a growing library of characters we bring to life through animation. They have the experience and talent to tell engaging stories that impress and persuade.
From human to human-like
Hamsters, bears, hairballs, you name it
From predators to peas in a peapod
STUFF YOU CAN EAT
From potatoes to onions and eggs
We create characters in different materials, from wood and metal to water.
Sometimes you just need some basic geometry to bring things to life
Animation allows us to strip away all unnecessary information so that only what is needed for a compelling message remains. It offers a large set of techniques to craft engaging stories that resonate with the audience. Most importantly, animation gives us tools such as metaphors, exaggeration, emotional triggers, exploded views and much more. Those tools help us create a message that makes sense and feels compelling.
We create three types of animations. These are:
For stories that resonate and persuade
Bringing clarity to complex systems
When words and graphics are enough
WHERE THE AUDIENCE ARE
Our Characters and Animations are used in a wide range of applications. Their primary purpose usually remains more or less the same: to attract attention, engage the audience, leave a lasting impression, help people make sense of the value on offer and to encourage positive action.

3D is, without a doubt, the best animation style for compelling storytelling and sense-making. It offers, after all, a whole extra dimension to play with compared to 2D. However, some B2B brands require a 2D look. No problem. We retain the animation power of 3D and render the frames as 2D. We call it 2.5 D.
Three dimensions of awesomeness

What Our Clients Say
Trusted By Many
How effective will an animation be at persuading? That depends on how well the production company understand the cognitive systems which govern the decision-making process.
WAKSTER has been working on developing a practical framework for understanding how the mind makes decisions for nearly two decades. The system is unique and powerful. We constantly refine the framework with the latest research findings in psychology, neuroscience and behavioural economics.
The value we offer is not so much in our character, animation or design skills - although we’re very good at those things - but in our ability to craft compelling stories, underpinned by behavioural science. That's what separates us from other animation studios.
We know how to connect with hearts and minds.
