About Us

Lemonade3d is a Croatia based studio specialized in 2D/3D computer graphics for games, TV, print and film. The studio first started out as a game development studio in 2001, working on small budget 3D and 2D titles. In 2005, we specialized in 3D graphics for TV, film and print. Since then, we produced a number of computer titles, four award winning short animated movies and a truck-load of commercial content for clients world wide. In 2013, the studio finished a Croatia-Bulgaria-Germany co-produced short documentary film”Father”, funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung Co-Production Prize, the Croatian Ministry of Culture, and the Bulgarian National Film Fund.

In 2012, Lemoande3d formed a lasting relationship with CNK Solutions, a creative agency based in London. In 2014, CNK became Bonsai Tiger and the partnership grew even stronger. In 2015, Lemonade3d opened its own London branch LemonadeUK.

We are a 9 man studio, employing animators, motion graphics artists, illustrators, 3D modelers and visual effects artists. Work done by the studio received over 50 international awards, including the OSCAR qualifying ANIMATED EYE award at the Aspen Shortsfest in Colorado USA, and the FIPRESCI International Film Critiques Society Award at ANNECY, France (the largest festival for animated films in the world).

Works done by the studio members were published in numerous magazines and publications, including EXPOSE 8, EXPOSE 9, EXOPSE 11, ANIMATION REPORTER MAGAZINE, HDRI 3D MAGAZINE, and used for promotional purposes and program loaders by companies such as NEWTEK, AUTODESK, PIXOLOGIC.
