Welcome to The Branding Agency Newcastle spotlight. In this post we’re going to showcase some of the best branding agencies in and around the Newcastle area.

This post has been described as:

  • Stupid
  • Really really stupid
  • Complete self sabotage


Because we’re going to showcase our competitors on our website.

But here’s the thing:

There are around 25,000 agencies in the UK. A high percentage of which offer branding services.

You can’t live in fear of competition, it exists.

One simple Google search and you’ve got a list of branding agencies or design agencies. They’re not hard to find.

But are they good? Not necessarily.

I’d rather write this post, and signpost some people to some of our competitors, that I know are great and look after their clients, than have people waste their marketing budget working with a crappy agency.

The Branding Brief Template

The Branding Brief Template is a free template that will help you get the brief for your branding project right. W...

Also, different agencies do different things and work best with different types of clients.

And, I’m not even going to list Canny first. Alphabetical ordering seemed the only fair way to do things.

If you’re looking for a branding agency in Newcastle, then you’re in the right place.

Let’s get into it.

How to Choose a Branding Agency to Work With

Any of the options on our list of branding agencies in Newcastle are good options.

I’ve always said to potential clients that you should choose based on 3 things:

  • Did you like them when you spoke to them?
  • Do you like their work?
  • Can you imagine building a long term relationship with them?

If you can answer “yes” to all of those questions, then start looking at the budget and how you make that work.

Choosing a branding agency can be daunting, because there’s so bloody many of them to choose from!

Trust your gut, and you’ll not go far wrong.

Hey I'm Tony, Founder and Director of Canny Creative. I eat, sleep and bleed Canny to be honest. I'm an absolute workaholic (and yes, I know that's not a good thing!).
