Character Design

Jumbla prides itself on producing extremely detailed and original character designs to help tell your story.


Our team of talented artists and illustrators work on-site to develop characters with personality, feeling and visual appeal.


Whether cute and cuddly or dramatic and imposing, our custom character design service provides you with a narrative tool to add further depth to your animation.

Benefits of Jumbla character design

  • Choose from a range of styles

  • Original character design unique to your project

  • Consistency with your brand identity and messaging

Tap into the collective creativity of our designers

The collective talent of Jumbla’s creative team can turn its hand to a wide range of illustrative styles.

No matter your desired look, our character design will always ring true to your brief, your brand identity and your messaging.

Our work for Orygen eHeadspace is a perfect example. Although the style was loosely based on cartoon-like references, the story needed to resonate with younger adults rather than children. Therefore, our illustrators drew the main protagonist with empowerment in mind, using an uplifting colour palette to complement this positivity.

Fit-for-purpose advice and guidance

“Clients often come to us with information about characters - their name, age, personality,” Jumbla’s Creative Director Callan Woolcock said.

“We’ll then illustrate those characters, give them a few different looks, and make sure they’re a good fit for the overall style.

“With character design, it's important they work for the story we’re telling. We can also make recommendations and provide ideas about how to further develop and enhance characters before we begin animating.”

Flexible solutions

We can work with you to create unique and brand-relevant characters to help your next animation stand out from the crowd.

If you'd like to explore how Jumbla's character design can add value to your project, the best policy is to ask during our discussions - we'll always go the extra mile to help out!


Our interconnected studios in the UK and Australia collaborate with clients all over the world in the film, TV, gaming, video production, events, marketing and advertising industries.


I don’t know if I stumbled across Jumbla, or if they stumbled across me. Regardless, we fell into working together very easily and at every turn they have been a joy.


It’s the combination of smart people who genuinely get on board with your project and then deliver with skill and craft. You can tell that Jumbla take pride in what they do and how they go about doing it.


There are very few shops in the world where you find that comfort zone right away, where you just start working. Jumbla is one of them.

Executive Creative Director


It was a pleasure to work with Jumbla - always dedicated, positive and collaborative. Even with a tight deadline, we liked how they found creative solutions to any challenges that arose, adding beautiful imaginative builds - all done with great passion.


I highly recommend working with them and I'm looking forward to collaborating again in the future.


Thank you very much!

Darren Mulkerrins

Design Director


We engaged Jumbla to create an entirely new creative direction for our men’s footwear brand Julius Marlow. Something that immediately impressed me about the business was the creativity of the entire team. Our producer really understood our brief, and spending time with the creative director was extremely exciting, largely due to the passion and professionalism they both had.


The finished piece created by the team was described by our CEO as the single best piece of creative our business had ever had made, and we achieved record sales online and across all retail channels.
