Teesside's leading integrated creative agency

Creative Design Agency – Across Middlesbrough & Teesside

We’re a leading independent, branding and creative agency based in Middlesbrough.


We create lifestyles and cultures

Our talented team of designers is headed up by Jamie Popple, one of the industry’s top creatives. He has lead creative teams in the Isle of Man, London and Liverpool, working for both small start ups and the worlds largest brands.
It’s taken twenty-five years to perfect our creative thinking; this, with our world-class client service sets us apart from the rest.

Our specialist creative services cover everything from website design and packaging to brochure design and exhibition systems. We live and breathe creativity; we teach advanced Photoshop skills at Universities and pass our knowledge on to the next generation.


Annual Reports

An annual report is by far one of the most important marketing materials a business can produce. When well executed and brought to life through an engaging blend of photography, design and typography, the annual report can instil confidence and provide inspiration for the future.

Our talented team of copywriters, photography experts and designers carefully craft annual reports so that the facts and figures are clear and concise whilst being complemented by a smart, professional design that is tailored to your brand.

We’ve been creating annual reports for organisations all over York, Middlesbrough and beyond for over 2 decades. Let’s bring your report to life.



Trust us, we know only too well the effect that packaging can have on a products sales; we wrote a blog on how a Tropicana packaging re-design completely failed and actually decreased sales by over 20% in a single month!

There are so many products out there, so let us make your product stand out from the crowded marketplace for all the right reasons.

Creative Design

Creative design is our first love – it’s in our blood. As a full service branding, design and digital agency based in Middlesbrough, we offer stunning design solutions and marketing essentials, such as immersive and interactive Powerpoint and Keynote Presentations. We create design that’s relevant, engaging and different.

Using the latest Adobe CC packages, we create design work that reflects your brand message and creative work that supports, lifts and adds value to your brand.

We create annual reports, company brochures and catalogues. We design for social media and apps. We create packaging, exhibition systems and create exciting graphics for video.

We have art-directed leading magazines and created editorial content – using our network of leading copywriters – for print, digital and social platforms.

Let Agency PK work alongside your business and create stunning creative work, efficiently and effectively.

Over the last decade we’ve seen a huge swing from print to digital, but nothing beats the feel and smell of fresh print on quality paper.


Brochure Design

We started out in print and have qualifications in print and print management. When it comes to your print project, company brochure or annual report, we have very close relationships with printers so we can receive the best prices on your print materials – we offer the full service. So whether you are in the UK or USA, we can have stunning print delivered to you quickly and efficiently.

We create your brochure the same way we would create any project – we take care of everything: copywriting, photography, print and design.

Our experience, knowledge, relationships with printers and award-winning copywriters make Agency PK the only choice for your print project.



We use our creative ability and knowledge gained over two decades to design and build stunning, informative and elegant presentations. (Yes, we said elegant – a word not usually associated with PowerPoint.)

They don’t need to be dull! We can make them super cool. We use the latest software to create PowerPoint Presentations for our clients in Middlesbrough, Teesside, Leeds and in Zurich. We create presentations that keep the attention of the viewer. We’ll create things in PowerPoint you never thought possible – including interactive presentations.

Low resolution logos? Terrible text alignment? Colours that hurt the eyes? No, we eliminate all these to produce a presentation you can be proud off and can’t wait to show off.

Your brand is precious – don’t allow it to be dented by a non-performing, boring PowerPoint presentation. As with all our services, we can look after the whole project – finding the images, sourcing the photography and producing the copy.

Take advantage of all our combined experience in your next PowerPoint presentation.
