Artlist is a Norwich success story.
Beginning life in the city as FXHome over 20 years ago, their journey began (in their own words) as “passionate, indie-filmmakers who wanted to help the creative community with easy-to-use tools to make Star Wars lightsaber visual effects”. Since 2001, this creative software company has grown to help over 6 million people worldwide tell their story.
The business’ next chapter began in 2021, when FXHome joined forces with the team at Artlist. Now, Norwich sits alongside offices in New York and Tel-Aviv, to bring an unmatched library of resources to creative practitioners: from software, to music and footage, and powerful editing tools. Currently, Artlist is used by over 13 million people across the globe.
We speak to Frontend Developer at Artlist Dan Jackson, about living and working in Norwich. Dan’s a UEA graduate, and has worked in the city since getting his first job here 5 years ago. He shares his thoughts on the local tech scene, the Artlist office, and the best lunch going.
