Gavin Strange


Gavin works at Aardman as both a director and a designer, where his creative output ranges from title sequences for the OFFF Festival and Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, to channel idents for BBC Two and Christmas films for Fortnum & Mason. His work is diverse in nature but is all held together by a common thread of fun, in-your-face energy.

By night he goes under the alias of ‘Jamfactory’, indulging in passion projects ranging from filmmaking to illustration, toy design to photography and even making music under the moniker of ‘Project Toy’.

Gavin is also a keynote speaker who has spoken around the world and is the author of ‘Do Fly’, a motivational mantra published by The Do Book Company.

His first ever stop motion project is the multi-award winning ‘Turtle’s Journey’, an emotional and impactful short film made for Greenpeace, about the plight of the oceans.
