Job, Joris & Marieke is a Dutch studio for animation, illustration, character design and music. Their work can be described as cute, funny, poetic - and sometimes disturbing.

The studio was founded in 2007 in Utrecht, Holland, by Job Roggeveen, Joris Oprins and Marieke Blaauw. They work on commercials, educational projects, music videos and short films. The music for all their work is composed by Happy Camper, an award-winning music project by Job. And in turn the studio creates all the music videos for Happy Camper.

Their short film MUTE won several international awards, amongst them the Grand Prix and Audience award at the Holland Animation Film Festival.

Their best-known work is the music clip "I'll Take You Along" for rapper Gers Pardoel. With 17 million views it was the best viewed Dutch music video ever on YouTube at the time.

In 2012 the children's series "The Tumblies" was released. Job, Joris & Marieke worked on the concept and character design. It's being broadcast in Holland, Italy, Turkey and Indonesia.

In 2015 their film "A Single Life" was nominated for an Oscar.
