Animation and illustration are powerful communication tools which help deliver your message more effectively leading to higher exposure and greater awareness .

Who Is Dotspot.

Dotspot is Dotti Colvin, a 2D and 3D digital animator and cartoonist with 20 years of experience in London, Brighton and New York. Specialist in characters, easy to work with, and fluent in English and Italian.


What I do.

I create custom illustrations and animations so that you can and engage your audience and deliver your message effectively. 

People are lazy. We opt for the easy option most of the time.  Do you know that 80% of people will watch a video but only 20% of people will read text on a page. Are you still here?  I’ll get to the point.

  • A website with images and animation has a much lower bounce rate.
  • An article with illustrations is more likely to be finished by a reader.
  • An explainer video could help people understand complicated ideas and instructions
  • A great image can be the difference between your message going viral or being canned.


"Clear communication, long friendship."

Trust, from all parties, is paramount and integral to a successful project.

“With my experience I easily turn my hand to the majority of things across a production schedule.

I specialize in character work in 3D and 2D, hand-drawn and digital.

I have been responsible for entire commercials, working  alone and / or in small teams, so adaptability, multitasking and problem solving are my strengths. You can be sure you are in safe hands.

I was one of the first female 3D artists out there in a male dominated sector, so I am NOT afraid of a challenge!”

Hi, I’m Dotti. Nice to e-meet you.

As a kid, I always drew and watched cartoons. It was a dream to grow up and work in that world.  I originally trained as a traditional animator/illustrator in Norwich School of Art and the School of Visual Arts in New York City and in 1998 when I returned to London, discovering a knack for computers and seeing an opportunity, I set up and developed the 3D department for the award winning stop motion company Loose Moose.

That was a while ago and many companies ago, and now have considerable experience of the whole production process and an extensive knowledge how to get an idea to the screen.

I work remotely for London and other UK companies from my studio in Italy,  and in house or remotely for Italian companies. I am fully kitted out for remote meetings, sykpe calls or online collaboration.
