We are Redbak, a Yorkshire-based creative design agency with over 20 years’ experience in brand & digital communication.

We set up shop in 1999 and over the years we have built up a great team of creative thinkers and doers. We are a small agency with big agency talent and thrive on creating unique and compelling communications for like-minded clients.

Our work is creative, clear & effective – helping our clients communicate better, engage with their customers and look and feel great  doing it. We’re big on ideas, because great ideas drive the success of any campaign. The more original the better. We love to bring something fresh and original to every project we work on, and love to explore the limits of our imagination. 

It goes without saying that we pride ourselves on the quality of our design work – it’s our passion after all.

We like to work with clients who inspire, surprise and challenge us – people who are passionate about what they do and love doing it. So whatever the scope and scale of your project, our in-house team and trusted partners are up to any challenge.

Have you got a challenge for us? We’d love to hear it!
