About us

We’re Northlight, and we’ve been creating effective design for over three decades. We design brand communication that helps organisations stand out in their marketplace, communicate authentically and engage with their audience; it’s how we make a real commercial difference to businesses.

Problem solving

Most people who come to us have a business problem they need to solve; It could be their brand isn't resonating, their brand doesn't match their values, or they're a start-up looking to navigate a crowded market. No matter what we're doing, we approach every project by understanding what problem we're solving to ensure our work has meaning and clarity.

" Northlight helped the Victoria Theatre find a brand style and voice of its own, creating a unique visual identity that has elevated our brand to new levels. "

Chloe Oldman - Victoria Theatre Marketing

Our team

Our team all share the same love of the creative industry; we're a collective of thinkers, designers and creatives that obsess about every stage of the design process. Every part of the process is important to us because creating visually powerful work requires meticulous attention to detail and great care about the quality of the final results.

" The brand Northlight created has dramatically impacted our business; it’s united the IDNS team, strengthening our position with our customers and increased brand awareness with potential customers. "

Daniel Jennings - IDNS Head of Marketing
