Experts in video, animation and illustration.



Founded in 2006 by Gavin Ricketts, Napoleon Creative is named after Gavin’s pug Leon. The company has grown from Gavin, Lewis & Leon in a shared office in Shoreditch, to a light and airy studio overlooking Regents Canal between Angel and Haggerston. We’ve filmed all over the world, extensively in Europe but as far afield as India, China and the Philippines. We’ve created work for software companies, car manufacturers, confectionary brands and hair care products!

Leon is now semi-retired and just comes into the studio once a week.
