Getting to know you
Everyone has a voice, but it sometimes needs a bit of help getting it to sing in tune. And, without the right voice, nobody wants to listen. We get brands singing from the rooftops; we get deep into an organisation to find an original voice and translate that into brand communication that sets the tone for your industry. We’re a hit factory for brands... drumroll, please...
Making brands sing
Based in the heart of Yorkshire we are a creative agency that has been meticulously creating strategic brand identities and effective design for over 30 years. Together with our clients, we help tell profound stories, captivate audiences and deliver brands in their own unique way, inspiring hearts as well as minds.
"They listen, learn quickly and are all thoroughly nice people too. A great agency!"
Florence Symington, Head of Marketing Eureka! The National Children's Museum
Making things look nicer!
Our agency collectively shares the same (almost obsessive) passion for everything design. We have a single-minded vision, to find better ways to communicate to the world. This clear creative approach allows for open experimentation, learning and most importantly, fun! Our internal vision extends to everyone we work with, we believe in collaboration, honesty and individuality. Our beliefs are embedded in our business, and they drive the way we do things.
"They captured the vision for our brand perfectly and continue to hit the mark whatever challenge we throw at them."
Darren Ludbrook, Managing Director Artisan Group
We’re not just one hit wonders...
We always set out to create partnerships with anyone we work with, many of which have continued for decades. We get a kick out of seeing our partnerships flourish and watching businesses grow because after all, that’s why we’re in this game, to grow together, to get better at what we do and to make our own bit of history.
Find your happy place...
We’d love everyone to spend some time working at Northlight, if only to join us for our traditional Friday pub lunch. Our culture is about balance, we’re certainly not afraid of hard work, but at the same time we appreciate that great ideas are formed through freedom, play and openness so we totally think work should be fun. Happy people = great ideas. It’s this balance, loads of coffee and the odd beer or two that keep our ideas fresh and our clients coming back time and time again.
"Akin to client feedback on my company's visual identity, I have nothing but praise for their work."
Kristina Wilcock, Director Gifted Media
There’s a proof in the pudding
It’s always good to take a step back, grab a coffee and take a look at the big picture. Our website is a chance to see our obsession transformed into something real and valuable, these are some of the projects we’re incredibly proud of. The work we do always leaves a lasting impression on our clients, and we hope it does with you too.
