Our Heritage

Established in 1996 by three talented and ambitious illustrators, with a vision and drive to be a great studio, we couldn’t have possibly known the fields we’d end up working in, the industries we’d bring our creativity to and the technologies that would take hold of our day to day lives, changing the way we work and our view of the industry we are still so passionate about 24 years on.

What started life as three ‘young’ men working with paper, pencils and paints from a small studio in Salford has evolved tremendously over the last 20 years and whilst the present team may not be exactly the same, the management and core team have been together throughout, building up a huge amount of experience and knowledge across IP development, Animated TV series production, 4D rides and Immersive Experiences(VR/AR) using cutting edge game-engine technology, now back in Salford, based out of the The Landing in the vibrant MediaCityUK.

It’s an evolution that continues to this day. While the processes and places may have changed, what hasn’t shifted is our initial vision and passion for our craft. On day one, we vowed to bring ‘quality’ to every commission we won, whatever the sector, whatever the platform.

On this website you’ll see some of the results of that ethos within images and case studies. We hope they showcase a little bit of our talent for illustration, animation, and general creativity, not least of which is all aided and assisted by some incredible staff and team members who are dear to our hearts! Some of whom have spent a lot of this journey along side us and are still here to tell the tale!

We hope Studio Liddell continues for at least another 20+ years, who knows what technologies and software we will be using to deliver the same core creative values we have retained since day one!
