Proud of our roots, and proud of our home, we’re an award-winning agency that consistently punches above its weight, with a regional, national and global client base.
Based in The Custard Factory, Digbeth, our office was originally built back in 1906 to produce Bird’s Custard (yes, really!). Today it retains its industrious edge with original Crittall windows, exposed steel and high ceilings – guaranteed to make any interior designer drool.
Today, our surroundings take on a different guise, housing an wonderfully rich and diverse set of businesses, counting creative entrepreneurs, fanciful freelancers and an achingly cool start-up scene – all surrounded by wall-to-wall entertainment and more street food than you can shake a slice of sourdough at.
We’re proud of our city. We wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
Did we mention that we’re award winning, too? HDY has recently won prestigious awards from The Drum, PRCA, FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards and the City of Birmingham Business Awards within creativity and consultancy of the year categories.
