Hello from Northumberland
Our friendly design studio is nestled in the hills of rural Northumberland. We feel lucky to live in such an inspiring part of the world. The rugged landscape and rich heritage constantly influences our designs and sits at the heart of our brand.
Why our clients choose us
Strategy first approach
Great design starts with great listening
To get the best results for your project, strategy and creativity always come hand in hand. By asking the right questions, right from the start, we help you take the guesswork out of how your business looks and communicates.
Confusion is replaced by a clear plan, so you can move ahead with confidence, attract the right customers and grow.
We mix traditional and modern techniques to create truly memorable brands
At Northumberland Design Co. we do things a little differently to most design agencies. Our roots are firmly planted in traditional craftsmanship; print making, illustration and painting. Many of our projects include bespoke hand drawn elements to add that extra personality and charm.
We make the design process easy and enjoyable
We champion a collaborative approach built on great relationships with our clients. Being a small studio means you work directly with creative director, Heather Maloney, on all projects. That way, you get big agency experience and skill, with small agency dedication and service.
Our processes have been developed and refined to make your design journey straight forward and hassle free. You can be confident that your project will be delivered on time and on budget, with us cheering you on all the way!
“Our new identity gave instant confidence, credibility and reassurance to our multi-national customers and suppliers.”
