about LiNDA

Through its quality and attention to detail fostered by responding to the challenging requests of the nation's clients, LiNDA Inc. is held in high esteem in the industry. The group consisting of a select few is more flexible and can adapt itself to a changing market much more easily compared to a large-scale enterprise. We spare no effort in making our clients' demands for quality images a reality.

Corporate Philosophy

Since its founding in 2003, LiNDA Inc. has produced not only over 200 television commercials but also handled CG imagery for movies, music videos, video game cutscenes, and events. No particular genre; always top quality.

In recent years, the graphics industry has experienced a trend toward not only reduced production costs but also reduced production times. However, given our many years of continued experience in CG work from across all genres, we have extensive creative and technological means of responding to a challenging environment, and we rise to the occasion in tough times. We want to take an independent stance that sets us apart from other CG production companies not only through our made-to-order work but also our original projects and bring the world image work bursting with imagination.

We also founded our Linda Hayama studio to focus on producing more artistic work. Thanks to the growth of our network, the need to conduct the business of CG production strictly in the heart of Tokyo has diminished. To provide a better working environment, we've opened a branch office in the natural beauty of Hayama, located in the Miura District of Kanagawa prefecture and right near Tokyo. With the proximity of the blue sea and the lush green mountains in the background, this studio is a complete about-face from the stifling environments that tend to typify CG production. In your free time, you can come into contact with the life of the mountains and sea, and since so many artists make Hayama their home, you can get a taste of the art world not only through the museum, galleries, but through just setting foot in the town. For CG artists partial to the digital realm, it provides excellent stimulation, and they can make the most of the new ideas inspired there in their work.
