About us

We bring brands to life with outstanding brand communications and a specialism in visual identity design.

By fully understanding what goes into creating the right identity, and the role that identity plays within the wider brand, we are perfectly placed to create results that make a difference and communicate the value that an organisation offers.

Branch are a small team that work on briefs that inspire and challenge us for clients ranging from multinationals to smaller independent companies and start ups. Being small means we are able to focus all of our efforts and work together on a project-by-project basis. Working closely with our clients, we become an extension of the organisation, a creative partner, so that we can truly understand you, your goals and objectives. We value this partnership above everything else; the best results always come from the best relationships.

It’s not only our clients we build relationships with; we have a reliable and talented group of specifically skilled collaborators who we commission as and when a brief requires. This collaborative approach ensures that the right people are working on the project at all times.
