Designed By Archive is an animation, motion graphics and illustration company, named after a university project by Merry Eady and Beth Brewster, visualising the findings of a local statistician archived at the University of Huddersfield’s Heritage Quay.

Using traditional design techniques and infusing them with modern software, Merry and Beth’s unique skills complement each other, enabling them to provide an extensive offering for clients, from hand drawn animation, 3D animation, visual effects, branding and character design.

Receiving invaluable support from the Enterprise Team to deal with a difficult client gave them an insight into the pitfalls of self-employment. However, both feel they have learnt more transferrable skills doing the Enterprise Placement Year during 2016/17 than they would in a normal year out, and are excited to put them into practice once they graduate. 

The Enterprise Placement Year has enabled Merry and Beth to get to grips with the financial side of business, as well as signposted them to funding and networking opportunities.  Designed By Archive continues to receive support from the Enterprise Team.
