Our history

We’re an award-winning brand and design agency. We combine strategic thinking and creative ideas to build strong brands and help businesses perform better.

In 2003, having been head-of-design for a big regional ad agency, founder Phil Lowery opened the doors of Projector Brand Communications in Newcastle upon Tyne with one core principle: To help businesses perform better by producing work that makes us proud.

16 years on and we’ve come a long way, worked in a multitude of sectors and been involved in more creative disciplines than we could list, but that core principle remains.

As our client list got bigger, so did our team of creatives. Between us we manage day-to-day activity and all output, drawing on external expertise when needed. Relationships matter to us; we’re big believers in collaboration between clients and us, to the point where we think it works best when there are no ‘clients’ and ‘us’, just a team.

Our offer

We help small businesses grow. We help big businesses stay that way. We change the direction of firms. We breathe new life into old brands. We simplify the complex.

We do this by combining strategic thinking and creative ideas to build engaging brands and better communications.

Over the years, we’ve come to realise that our work can be largely broken down into three areas: Thinking, creative and implementation. Thinking enables us to get under the skin of your business, to understand the problem we’re trying to solve. Only then can we find your meaningful difference, that added substance, that extra credibility – that true essence of your brand. Then, we apply creativity to help bring that to life in exciting ways that communicate and engage the audience. For many of our clients, we don’t stop there either; we implement their brand daily through graphic design, advertising, digital marketing, photography, artwork and animation.

Why us?

We’re passionate about brand and ideas, but we’re commercial too –
we work with clients to help improve the performance of their business.

We immerse ourselves in our clients’ businesses to understand the challenges
they face. Only then do we start to build solutions that overcome them.

We’ve been around for more than 16 years. During that time, we’ve overcome complex
creative challenges for our clients, time and time again.

We’re a creative team who manage and produce for our clients;
we are accountable and we deliver.

Our team

We’re straight-talking, hardworking, accountable and passionate about what we do. Fuelled by creativity, our team of experts come together and share knowledge across all projects to get the best results for you. Within our team of 6, we have strategists, designers, writers and marketeers.

Our studio space is shared with Union Room, a digital agency we have worked alongside for over a decade. They guide and build much of what we do in the digital world and, when we’re not busy collaborating, they give us the odd challenge at pool too.

"Don’t be afraid to listen to a different perspective or look outside of your core proposition to find what works for you. Standing out in such a fast-paced marketplace will be a continual challenge for us, but having Projector on board gives us the fresh input we need, every step of the way"
