Founded in 2004 by childhood friends – animation veteran Ricardo Curtis and finance expert Wes Lui – House of Cool has gone from a small group of artists to a studio that is producing and partnering with the biggest entertainment companies.


House of Cool is called home to the coolest, most talented designers, story artists, editors and producers in the business. Over 19 years, our artist-centric and family driven approach with leadership provided by Curtis and Lui – both creative and business wise – have helped us grow to become a premiere studio operating in the world today.
