Andersen M Studio was founded by Martin Andersen (MA, RCA) in 2001 after having spend two years working with acclaimed graphic designers Vaughan Oliver and Chris Bigg at v23: design celebrities for their beautifully crafted design work for 4AD records.

In 2006, Line Andersen, Martin's sister, upon graduating from CSM with an MA, won the Creative Futures Award for her design work - one of the highest accolades for a graduate. Later that year she joined the company, creating an interesting creative partnership between the siblings, having specialised in different disciplines (Martin in typography, photography and sound, and Line in stop-frame animation and hand-drawn typeface design). Over the past five years they have worked side-by-side on nearly all projects that have come their way.

Andersen M Studio create beautiful unique stop-frame animations, graphic design, typography, films and music and has grown to become a creative multi-disciplinary studio...
