"I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Charactershop for many years. They have supported CITV and its brand ethos with passion and creativity from bewildering brief to demanding delivery.

Not least in the success of our BAFTA winning Share a Story competition. Always respectful of our ideas yet ready to offer original solutions when required."

What our
Clients Say...

Award-winning
Animation for Television

Our core team met at the BBC, so broadcast was naturally where CharacterShop started out. Since we opened the studio in 2002, we’ve won a collection of awards for our work for children’s television. In fact, CBeebies and CITV remain two of our biggest clients today. But we do much more than this.
