About Us

About Us / Awards

A different Kettle of fish: [English idiom] Something new; an alternative; a different thing altogether.

Kettle provides innovative cross-media 3D animation and visual effects. Finding creative solutions to complex problems is what gets us out of bed in the morning. And sometimes, what keeps us awake at night. Give us a nice cup of tea and a brief for interactive, print, online, TV or any other visual communication, and we’re happy.

As our name suggests, we’re rather different from other animation studios. Although we’re specialist, we’re not niche. We’re infatuated with all media and technology, wherever we find it. It feeds our souls, rattles our brains, quickens our pulses. The way we see it, the more we know, the more we grow. And the quality of our work grows with us.

This makes us greedy. We’ll handle all the media you can throw at us - from intricate, interactive digital assets to glossy, high-profile TV commercials – and hand you back flexible, cost-effective solutions.
