How to Identify the Ideal Clients for Your Animation and Creative Services

At Flying Duck Studio Lab, we take great pride in the quality of services we offer to our clients. From animation and design to post-production, VFX, sound, graphics, titles, explainers, and more, we strive to deliver outstanding results that meet and exceed our clients’ expectations. 

But not all clients are created equal, and choosing the right ones is essential for the success of our business.

So, what type of clients should you be looking for? Here are some tips from our team at Flying Duck:

Clients with a Clear Vision:

Look for clients who have a clear idea of what they want to achieve with their project. This will help you understand their goals and deliver better results.:

Collaborative Clients:

Choose clients who are willing to collaborate and work closely with you throughout the project. This will help to ensure that you are both on the same page and can achieve the best possible outcome. 

When it comes to successful client collaborations, Mike Ibeji’s partnership with us for a project with the Discovery Channel stands out. Throughout the process, Mike actively engaged with us, providing regular briefings and clear direction, amazing documents full of references. This level of collaboration ensured that we were always aligned, enabling us to deliver the best possible outcome. Together, we transformed his vision into reality through a truly dynamic and collaborative approach. 

Appreciative Clients:

Choose clients who appreciate the value of your services and are willing to pay a fair price for your work. Avoid clients who try to negotiate too aggressively on price or who undervalue your skills and expertise. 

One example of working with appreciative clients is our collaboration with Shine Studio on the Swagger Series 2 project. From start to finish, Shine studio displayed a deep appreciation for the value of our services and consistently expressed gratitude. Throughout the project, Shine Studio provided regular feedback, shared their thanks, and acknowledged the expertise we brought to the table. The recognition of our skills created a collaborative environment built on mutual respect.

Working with appreciative clients like Shine Studio not only enhances the project experience but also reinforces the value of our work and expertise. 

Sound and music can enhance the impact of your animation. Consider adding sound effects or a soundtrack to your animation to make it more engaging.

Repeat Clients:

Repeat clients are a great indicator of satisfaction with your work. Look for clients who have worked with you in the past and were happy with the results.

Clients with a Similar Aesthetics:

Look for clients who have a similar aesthetic to your work. This will help to ensure that you are both on the same page creatively and can produce work that you are both proud of.

Just like our collaboration with Shine Studio, we’ve had the pleasure of working with Hubspot, another client who shares a similar aesthetic approach. Hubspot, known for their visually appealing designs, understands the power of shapes and aesthetics in conveying a strong brand identity. We found common ground in our creative vision, allowing us to produce work that we are all proud of. Moreover, Hubspot’s commitment to ethicality and diversity aligns perfectly with our values, creating a meaningful partnership that goes beyond aesthetics and emphasises shared principles.

There are many different animation techniques that you can use in your social media marketing. From 2D animation to stop motion, each technique has its own unique benefits. Experiment with different techniques to find the one that works best for your brand.


By choosing the right clients, you can build a reputation for delivering high-quality work and establish long-term relationships that benefit both parties. At Flying Duck, we believe in fostering relationships with clients who share our values and appreciation for quality and creativity.

So, if you’re looking for animation, post-production, VFX, sound, graphics, titles, explainers, or other services, consider choosing Flying Duck Studio Lab to help you bring your vision to life.
