Koi Factory was created in 2012 by Luciana Jordao and Paulo Visgueiro with the dream of becoming a cutting edge 2D and 3D Animation studio driven by a talented team of artists with unique capabilities to create exceptional art and motion. The dream became reality quite quickly for Koi and, in its first years of existence, the company was selected by some of the most respected companies in Brazil and abroad to be part of a number of distinguished productions. In a few words, Koi is a cost-effective one-stop-shop for solving amazing Broadcast, Print and Digital work with expertise in Concept Art, Character Design, LookDev, 2D and 3D Animation, VR, Motion Design and Post-Production. In 2016, Koi added the 3D Lead and incredible artist Leonardo Fleuri as a partner, and Luciana Jordao moved to New York to consolidate and expand the business in the US.

Koi is a symbol of worldly aspiration and advancement. According to a Japanese legend, if a koi succeeded in climbing the falls on the Yellow River, it would be transformed into a dragon. The Japanese associate koi with perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose. Because of its strength and determination to overcome obstacles, it stands for courage and the ability to attain high goals. #BeBrave
