Why Leicester?

Leicester has enjoyed a high profile in recent years. The discovery of King Richard III’s remains (in a car park a stone’s throw away from our offices no less) has helped to elevate the city on the world’s stage.

This coupled with the extraordinary feat of Leicester City FC winning the Premiership a couple of years back has meant that Leicester is a city on people’s radar. We’re well connected – St.Pancras is just an hour away – and centrally located so that many other cities are within easy reach.

We can vouch that it’s a great place to work and live too. Our Friar Lane offices are in the heart of the city, surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops. We have a strong creative industry, and a friendly agency scene with is supportive rather than competitive. We are proud to sponsor Create – a local network aiming to inspire Leicester’s digital design community.
