2D Animation

At Little Motel, we’re passionate about 2D animation. It’s perfect for quickly describing your story, or explaining that tricky process. The versatility helps brands to simply express anything they need to. We’re experts in 2D animation, taking images or bespoke designs and building them together to create quality motion tailored to you. With so many possibilities, we’ll guide you through the creative process and achieve your goals.

Some more examples of our 2D animation work



Marshalls – Biodiversity animation

We helped hard landscaping suppliers, Marshalls, shout about the ways their customers can increase biodiversity in their gardens. The explainer animation complements their stand at BBC Gardener’s World event at the NEC dedicated to sustainable garden choices. To increase the film’s longevity, we created two versions of the explainer animation, one for at the event and one for Marshall’s social feeds. The film was really well received, helping homeowners with their landscaping choices.



HEE – Primary Care Nursing Framework

We worked with Health Education England (HEE) to produce this animation for General Practice nurses in the NHS. Primary care and general practice are ever evolving to meet the needs of local communities. This animation explains how the Career & Core Capabilities Framework provides a supportive structure for General Practice nurses to navigate these changes and opportunities.



University of Leeds – CMBs

University of Leeds reached out to us to create an animation that explains part of research findings from the School of Sociology. Their ‘Financing for Society’ project developed a community crowd-funding project, through Community Municipal Bonds (CMBs). Our film explains the benefits of CMBs to local authorities across the UK.



DHL – Comic book animation

DHL makes sure your parcels arrive where you need them, when you need them. We brought to life illustrations showing the behind-the-scenes work that goes into that all important present getting to you on time. We developed this comic-book animation so that the illustrations could be adjusted for different customer journeys.

Thank you so much for your flexibility, our timelines are always shifting but you have been accommodating throughout. Everything has been great, really appreciate your attention to detail and understanding of the brief.
