Laura at her desk

B Animated Ltd is a 2D animation and design studio based at the Digital Media Centre in Barnsley, launched by founder and creative director Laura Blackburn in 2018.

Laura, an award-winning graphic designer, is passionate about helping companies tell their brand’s story through animation.

Within a month of launching, B Animated was listed on The Drum Recommends register and since then, the business has gone from strength to strength.

Combining years of graphic design and animation experience to create clean-cut animated products for businesses in all sectors, Laura and her team have had the pleasure of working with a wide range of clients including Welcome to Yorkshire, Barnsley Council, and leisure operator BPL. Work produced by the studio has been used to promote major events including the Tour de Yorkshire and UCI Road World Championships.
