Why choose a London design agency when Leicester now competes with the best?

Due to a rich manufacturing and printing industry, Leicester has historically had a great reputation for graphic design. This heritage, together with Leicester’s perfect UK location, increasingly means that local agencies can attract high profile clients from all over the country.

Lower overheads also makes Leicester an attractive proposition over London agencies for Marketing Managers in big companies looking to tighten their belts.

We’ve recently been featured in an article in Business Monthly magazine – here’s a snippet from the feature:

“Leicestershire has been blessed with some remarkably talented design studios, and their impact on the national stage is now being recognised more than ever. Agencies such as Standout UK, in Desford, and Leicester Mercury Business Awards finalist Arch Creative, in Rutland Street, as well as exhibition specialists Hayley Sharpe, in Guildhall Lane, Big Communications, In London Road, and Newenglish Design, in the city centre, all prove the county can hold its own when it comes to competing with the big players in London and Manchester.”
