About Us

Mental Image was set up in 2010 by animation producer Hamish Gilbert to manage teams of artists and coders to deliver digital products for businesses.

A fter working as an artist and animator in TV, publishing and entertainment across 2 decades, I set up Mental Image in to broaden the scope of my production and keep up with evolving technology. My aim was to take the experience and creative processes I learned working in media, and apply it to more practical purposes. Since 2010, Mental Image has specialised in making engaging videos, graphics-based apps, and multimedia presentations to communicate information pertaining to science, education, finance, medicine and government.

As Creative Director of Mental Image Productions, I design and direct the majority of animated content that we produce, and source assistance from established artists, coders, and marketing consultants. Because we travel light, employing teams on an as-needs-basis, we are able to keep our overheads low, and our services affordable to an international market.

Mental Image has operated in Sydney, Australia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We have sourced talent from all over the world, but most of our digital artists are based in Australia and Malaysia. We have streamlined methods for connecting with clients and suppliers through the web, and are looking forward to working on more international projects. To get in contact, email me directly at hamish@mentalimage.org.
