Story

We just want to create enjoyable partnerships to deliver success - simple.

Here's the thing, we aren't like many other agencies. In fact, we are a bit anti-agency. We still do all the things you need, we just don't wrap it in the mystery and jargon you can sometimes find in agency land...it's just not us.

14 years delivering client success

We started Punch in 2007 as a group of three friends who wanted to create an independent agency where everyone had a chance to play an active part - and share in our success.

One agency - one solution

Fast forward to 2021, we are now a multi-disciplinary team of 18, supporting our clients with creative, content,  digital and strategic services.

Our offices are a grade II listed chapel on the edge of Leeds that we purchased in 2016 to provide space for both team and client collaboration. In those offices we have an open creative studio, separate client project rooms and a video/photography studio.

Investment in long-term growth

We are an agency that is built to last. Since 2007 our primary focus has been to invest in our team and to build lasting client partnerships – our average client tenure is well over 5 years.

By delivering success we become an essential part of our client strategy. Those essential partnerships are the bedrock of our agency and have seen us through a global economic crisis in 2008 and pandemic in 2020.

Richard, Creative Director at Punch

“Client trust is all about your relationship to risk, we need to earn your trust for us to deliver. As owners of our business we have always taken that client trust very seriously.”

Our Location

In 2016 we purchased our first property, a Grade II listed chapel in Leeds. This was made possible by our sustained growth, client relationships and the support of our team.
