What we've done
Our diverse clients run the gamut from financial services to global charities, consumer to corporate.

Our skill set includes: Content Management Systems (CMS’s) and eCommerce. Online games, native mobile application development, high-end 3D animation, and custom application development.

For over 20 years, we have worked on local and global projects for clients of all sizes. Never boring, always innovative, often groundbreaking, our flexibility to provide excellence is how we came to be ‘preferred suppliers’ for many agencies and companies. By collaborating with multiple teams across the globe we have helped create intuitive presentations of complex information via clear design.

From strategy to design to development to interactive animations, we produce platforms that allow clients to scale and grow with minimum time and effort. With every project we work on, we are not just brought in as developers, but also as strategists and consultants for the project. We use our hands-on expertise in the planning stages to help problem solve and preemptive troubleshooting.  The end result is a mix of cost savings, happier developers, and satisfied clients.

Our Story

A brief history

Founded in the city of Philadelphia, by an animator, a graphic designer and a web developer. Since the 1990s, lucidcircus has been pushing the envelope of what is possible.

We started out as a bunch of designer coders making pretty markup and print. Since then we have moved into 2D/3D motion graphics, post production, mobile and enterprise level application development & strategic consultation.

We believe in passionate, talented teams who don’t just follow a schema, but envision. Our objective is to combine digital strategy, UX and design to help clients think beyond their original concepts, foresee obstacles, and create extraordinary digital experiences.

We have worked with and built partnerships with ad agencies, fortune 500 companies, and ma & pa start-ups from around the world and across time-zones. Our work speaks for itself, and our partnerships speak for our commitment.
