Who we are
As a creative agency, we are a talented team of artists, designers and web developers, who deftly combine strategy, artistry and elbow grease to create brilliant work, always with a boldly innovative twist. You’ve probably got great plans to promote your business across all manner of sectors but where do you start? We recognise that your company ultimately consists of you, the people who make it happen every day.
And guess what? We share a common goal; putting your products and services in front of the people who’ll love them, looking utterly stunning. In a beautifully-designed nutshell, we spend our days producing creative work for businesses like yours, encompassing everything you need including digital, artwork, print, and advertising. Give us a try, we could be that breath of fresh air your business needs.
Our story starts with the unification of 3 creative and obsessive minds. Working together at one of the North East’s top advertising agencies, on high profile clients such as Sainsbury’s, Paypoint and Franks Flooring, they were known throughout the North East as one of the best creative teams in the industry. Arron and Steve had been the central hub of the agency’s creative team for over 15 years when Andy joined them to head up the web development department.
Working together, these three passionate and often obsessive creative minds took things to the highest level as a whole host of high profile clients, both locally and nationally, wanted the agency to weave their magic. Their proudest moment came when the agency won the account to rebrand Sainsbury’s Local convenience stores across the whole of the UK. However, their work was brought to an abrupt end when the agency owner decided to close the doors. After a bit of soul searching they made the decision that this setback wouldn’t split up such a successful team and LemonTop Creative was born.
Owning an agency
Owning an agency is not for the faint of heart, but Founding Partner Andy had an ace up his sleeve. Unbeknown to most people, Andy had been blogging about the craft beer scene for over 2 years. In fact, his blog was renowned for being the foremost source of information for brewers, suppliers and craft beer enthusiasts throughout the UK. Andy pulled everyone together at one of his regular “Twissups” (the name he gave to the meetings he had with his twitter followers) and gradually started winning design work, acquiring websites to build and getting the LemonTop name out into the industry.
We are now regarded as one of the leading creative agencies for the brewing industry. Becoming the “go to” agency within the brewery sector has been a result of passion, hard work and somewhat of a happy accident. We never intentionally set out to do this but Andy’s humble blog along with his drive and passion for the craft beer scene became a catalyst for bigger and better things. Once people saw the work we had created for a couple of Microbreweries, it kind of snowballed into something much bigger and we now work with some of the world’s biggest brewery brands including Molson Coors.
