Åsa Lucander


With strengths in storytelling and design, Åsa loves exploring various creative styles, embracing 2D, stop motion and CGI.  She has a passion for hand-rendered drawings and exploring texture and colour across different mediums. Åsa’s work mixes wry humour with melancholy and she loves to bring beautiful characters of every shape to life.

Åsa has directed worldwide campaigns for clients such as Change4Life, Nestlé (China), BBC VR, Project Everyone and Alzheimer’s Research UK among others, and has also directed short films, including the award-winning ‘Lost Property’.

She loves blending music, hand-drawn characters and puppets, and this culminated in her creating the award-winning music video for Coldplay’s ‘Daddy’. Also a fan of traditional 2D animation, Åsa created the film ‘Delphine and the Imaginary Menagerie’, a powerful piece inspired by the words of eight-year-old Blue Peter viewer Delphine, which premiered at the UN Climate Change Conference - COP26 - in Glasgow.
