Visual communication expertise

Since 2009 I've been helping organisations of all sizes communicate their messages through the medium of animation and illustration. My work has been shown on TV, used in films, screened at film festivals and I'm a published children's book illustrator. Have a look at some of the clients I've had the privilege of working with.

Work directly with the project manager and creative

I personally work on every project and illustrate all graphics and do the majority of animation. So you will be dealing directly with the project manager and creative. I have a team of local creatives to assist with script writing, animation, sound tracks, voiceovers and production so we can produce work quickly, in budget and to a high standard.


Whether you're looking for a marketing video to increase conversion rates or an animation to explain a complicated concept, I can help.

From corporate videos to funny children's cartoons, I work with a variety of clients to create unique animations specifically for their communication needs.

I work with clients locally, nationally and internationally. With my tried and tested production process I can create animations on time, within budget and with plenty of revision opportunities.

What clients say

When the European Plastic Pipe and Fittings Association (TEPPFA, who we are a member of) turned to us to create an animation on the benefits and longevity of plastic pipe, we decided that we needed something different from the normal ‘techie’ animations. I turned to Dr Google and found Mair Perkins’ website, which straight away drew my attention and captivated my imagination. I knew that, after speaking and meeting with Mair, that we would get more than what we expected. A small business exuding tons of artistry, with a gifted team who have brought a mundane industrial concept to life.

Sabah Khirouni, Marketing & Communication Officer, Radius Systems

It was a pleasure working with Mair and her team. I found her service reliable and responsive. It was a big ask to produce a quirky, catchy animation aimed at young people, with humour and pro environmental messages - all on a small budget - but they came out tops! The animation is imaginative, entertaining, informative and most importantly met the brief.
