WHO are we?

Kino Bino animation studio is run by co-directors Steff & Jack. Based in Leicester, UK, working in the city’s vibrant cultural quarter, alongside like-minded creatives, our small team allows us to work closely with clients. We pride ourselves on our collaborative, teamwork driven process.

The team first met whilst working as animators at an online primary education company. Steff left to start her own, successful animation and illustration company (Steff Lee Studios) eventually persuading Jack to join her, and thus Kino Bino was born.




They realised what we wanted when no one else did – the creativity and perceptiveness at the studio was exceptional. Everything was at a high standard, from the animation itself to the dealings we had with Steff and Jack – both really warm at the same time as being very professional.

At Kino Bino we love to design fun, appealing, animated videos and take pride in working closely with our clients to ensure the content we create is perfectly suited to their needs.

Working in a variety of styles our speciality is character based 2d animation. We love to create fun, relatable characters for all sorts of purposes, whether to feature in videos or even act as brand mascots.

Working with our network of animators, illustrators, designers and musicians, our team will always provide a personalised and professional approach to your project.


One of the defining features of Kino Bino is that all our artwork is created in-house, all our graphics are custom made, and we pride ourselves on keeping our clients involved at every step of the way.

We will collaborate closely with you during the development stage to ensure the design fits with your brand aesthetic and will be appropriate for the target audience.

If you’re new to the animation process don’t fret! With years of experience we can run a project from start to finish or pick up the production at any stage in the process.

We benefitted from their clear and creative vision, good communication and advice throughout the development process and their attention to detail throughout.
