Seed Animation

I met up with Jason Purvis recently – a producer I've known for many years at various companies like Ortmans Young and EMAP (now The Box). He is now Executive Producer at Seed Animation Studios.

Along with Jason, Seed is comprised of creative director Morgan Powell and technical director Neil Kidney who moved to Soho from Middlesbrough in 2007. Seed have done some great work in this time - there is a lot of humour and warmth in what they do. I urge you to check out a spot called "MTV Qoob" on their playlist page - about a first aid guy that gets it all wrong and does more harm than good.

Here is a recent example of their work - an ident from a Qatar based children’s channel called JCC. Seed were approached by Radiant Studios to realise their designs for a series of 6 channel idents, on screen graphics and promo elements. You can see the rest of these on their homepage

It looks like they had fun working on this one.

Ben marshall - freelance

Phew - more moving house and holiday shenannigans out the way - hence the interrupted service - It's been a bit of a journey, but all for the good in the end....
Right this is just a quickie to get back into the swing of things and to mention another designer I met the other day, who I thought had a good style and had done some interesting stuff, even though he has only been in the industry a few years. He most recently worked with E&P associates.
Here is a link to his site/showreel
