Ben Wild Studios has announced it has secured a number of clients including automotive manufacturer McLaren.

The studio of creatives, co-founded by Manchester-based young entrepreneur and animator Ben Wild, secured the creative brief with McLaren in November.

The studio has also worked with a number of clients in 2021 including New Balance, CBBC and the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on briefs ranging from animations, artwork for videos, social media graphics and storyboards. 

Earlier this year, the studios launched after co-founder Ben Wild secured investment from fellow co-founder Andrew Morgan, a local investor and businessman. 

Ben Wild said: “The response we’ve had since launching Ben Wild Studios has been unbelievable. From starting as a Manchester-based animator, we now have a global presence, animating for some of the biggest well-known household names including Amazon, PUMA and WWE.

“The most surreal moment of the year has to be when we were approached to provide animations for music legend Diana Ross’s latest music video.  That was a serious pinch-me moment. Sadly I didn’t get to meet her but to hear that she loved my work was incredible.”
