Our story

magneticNorth was established in 2000 as a digital-first design studio. In that time, we’ve helped our clients meet and shape evolving audience needs by putting digital at the heart of their businesses.

Founded and still based in Manchester - the original modern city and the fastest growing city in the UK - we are part of the largest creative and digital cluster outside London.

Our approach

As a design led organisation, we use the practice of ‘making’ to help our clients progress and reach decisions. This making-based approach allows us to effectively bridge the gap between strategy and execution.
