Jon Draper - Studio Founder

My name, is Jon Draper, yes, a name similar to that of the the lead character in Mad Men... Despite my best efforts, I'm not as cool.

But... I am the founder of an award-winning animation studio in the UK. That's been successful growing since 2014.

Prior to this I worked for studios in and around London for over 10 years.

I then moved my young family to the coast and started my own studio from a box room at home, on a budget. Stormy Studio, now has a regular talented team, cool coastal premises (with film studio). Quality global clients, well honed marketing and sales processes. We produce compelling creative work that earns a good honest living.

Plus we've adapted and continue to thrive despite the affects of the pandemic in 2020.
