Paul Windle Designs has outlined its plans to work even closer with the toy and game industry as the firm marks its 25th anniversary in the industry this year.

2014 has been a busy year for the studio which has signed a range of new licences and will be launching Star Wars Rebels cards and games next year.

The firm has also seen great success over the last 12 months thanks to Disney’s Frozen, alongside Peppa Pig, TMNT, Hello Kitty, LEGO and more.

Paul Windle Design is now looking forward to continuing its success in the toy industry, as it gears up to attend the Nuremberg International Toy Fair in 2015.

“We are looking forward to a successful 2015,” said John Dyer, director and senior artists at Paul Windle Design.

“It is always an exciting time as we’re involved in the launch of new products. We are already working on projects with clients, creating designs for new toys and games that we can’t talk about at the moment. But all will be revealed at the upcoming Toy Fair show.”

The creative firm has seen many changes over the course of its history, but Paul Windle insists it has managed to hold on to its heritage that spans a quarter of a century.

“There have been many changes over the last 25 years,” added Keith Opie, joint director and senior artists at Paul Windle Designs.

“The obvious one has been the Digital Revolution. We have evolved our services to keep up with the developments in the games industry.

“Working with app and game developers, we now produce digital content and CGI illustrations alongside the more traditional requirements.

“Despite the advancements, we do still draw though. It all still begins with a pencil and paper. I don’t think that will ever die.”
