Best 2D Animation Studios

2D animation is the craft of creating movement in a two dimensional space. The objects in 2D animation are 2 dimensional, meaning that they have height and width but do not have depth. 2D animation studios are typically capable of creating digital videos for companies.

Businesses should choose a 2D animation company by asking for existing work examples. This way, businesses can get a sense of a 2D designer’s work style. Also, businesses should ask 2D animation companies what kind of unique work they can produce for the company.

To help you get started finding and hiring a top 2D animation company, we created a list of some of the best agencies from around the world. Browse work portfolios, reviews, and case studies to research which 2D animation studios to connect with. After you create a shortlist of your top 5 2D animation studios, visit their website and schedule an intro call to learn more.
