Back in 1980 Cod Steaks starting out as a small model making company based in Bristol. Cod Steaks evolved and grew, building the sets and models for several Aardman Animations feature films. From small beginnings Cod Steaks has become the foremost Creation Agency in the UK leading the way in championing fabulous design within the built environment.

We still operate in Bristol from our own fully equipped workshop which is alive with activity. With seventeen manufacturing departments housed we have the talent to tackle almost any project small or large.

Our team have produced over 2000 projects for Animation, Film, Museums, Exhibitions, Brand Centres, Retail, Immersive Attractions, Science Centres, Aquariums, Zoos and Art installations which is ever expanding into experience and immersion.

We work internationally and are recognised for our distinctive creative approach to projects and exceptional aptitude working for some of the world’s leading brands.

Our work is not confined to any specific medium and we’re fortunate to have worked on many landmark pieces of public art. Our projects are visited by over 100 million visitors per year. We’ve created engaging museum displays, created some of the most entertaining animation sets, bringing films to life and turning retail stores into top visitor experiences. 

We offer 3D Design, 3D Scanning, Graphic Design, Engineering, Electronics, Joinery, Textiles, Paint Effects, Sculpture, Mold Making, Model Making, Prop Making, Casting, CNC, GRP, Vac-Forming, Polyurea Spraying, Restoration, Installation and Project Management.

We love what we do, and this is translated into the creations we work on.  The Cod Steaks family is a special place where we turn ideas into stunning reality for clients.
