Hello. We’re the designers.

Designing ‘different’ since 2001.

Since 2001 we’ve been differentiating businesses in a way they cannot be ignored – by looking different, sounding different, and ultimately allowing them to be different. Whilst our client list is international, we remain true to our Yorkshire values and are proud of our northern roots.

We’re a down-to-earth, design-led team with in-house capabilities delivering brand identity, naming, creative copywriting, print design, digital design and development, photography, animation and video production. Finally and importantly, we’re storytellers.

The Engine Room is a member of the Design Business Association, which underpins our results-focused ethos and our commitment to ‘best practice’ delivery of design services. We have five design effectiveness awards.

  • We were very impressed with the way The Engine Room presented, but most importantly how they interpreted our needs.

  • The team developed ideas for the bid that not only helped us stand head and shoulders above other submissions in the competition, but also helped us to translate key messages across to our audiences.

  • We perhaps didn’t previously appreciate the strategic impact of such a branding exercise, but the minute we saw their proposition, we loved it. We’ve been empowered by this project and the potential for us to thrive in this complex sector, is now unrivalled.
