Kind words from our clients

"Redboat helped us to create an online animation for interested parties to lean about Marine Zoning. We had a short turnaround time and very specific requirements, which did change at our end during the course of the project. The team at Redboat were wonderful. They offered suggestions to improve the process along the way, never seemed phased by last minute changes and were generally a pleasure to work with. We were thrilled with the end product. I’d highly recommend their services."

"Fantastic, great value work and his flexibility and commitment to always do the right thing by the job and to ensure the very best outcome is to be admired."

Jamie Webster
Creative Director - Xavier Advertising

"We used Redboat to tell a complex story in a short animation. We were completely happy both with the result – it make quite an impact at the time and is still being used successfully – and with the professional way in which Adrian interacted with the team in developing and fine-tuning the brief. I enthusiastically recommend his work generally and have done to others who might be looking for similar services."

Mike Grundy

"Did an exceptional job on a recent extremely complex and high profile 3D animation project. If you need a highly committed person, Adrian is the right person."
