About

Every project is different, every journey is different, but they all start with a conversation. We’ll get to know you, listen to you, understand your audiences, challenge you, challenge each other, wow you and support you, importantly making a difference to you and your organisation.

Altogether creative

Altogether Creative is a unique brand communication studio offering a blend of brand strategy, creative thinking, illustration and typography. We’re based in Baltic 39, the creative studio hub of The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and whatever your creative challenge, our approach will always be from the heart.

We breathe culture, bring our passion, lend our expertise and make a difference to your projects and people. Having worked on brands for many arts, heritage and community projects across the UK – we’re ready to use our experience and understanding to support you with work that inspires agency and motivates engagement.

You’ll enjoy working with us, people do. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we are serious about the impact that good design can make.

An Altogether connected community

Cultural communications for us, is about motivating and encouraging connection from and with the audience.  From the organisations we work with and support, to our team at Altogether, and those we collaborate with. Freelancers. Leaders. Change-makers. Artists. Believers. We’re all about connecting and caring for that community, in a human way.

Although that first connection may be small, the collective impact can be huge. Every project and organisation measures their impact in different ways. So that impact can be both statistical and emotional. Funds raised. Visits. Number of people supported. Projects delivered.

An Altogether equal approach

We believe in doing better work, in a healthier society.

We believe that we get there by enabling equality and defending diversity, whenever we see an opportunity to do so in our work.

In the studio, we’ve cultivated a culture that celebrates difference. A person’s experiences, race, gender, age, religion and identity – will always be something we respect, protect, learn and benefit from. We don’t just talk about it, either.

We always look to hire and work with a diverse community of people, and promote equality by amplifying opportunities for those who are underrepresented.

We consider it our duty to reach and platform the voices that aren’t often heard when developing brands, and we will keep raising our game in a sector which still isn’t diverse enough.

Ours is a 60% woman-powered studio, and we are also linked as Trustees to local community organisations that align with our own E&D values, and make a difference locally.

Our co-founder also heads up the regional Ladies Wine & Design chapter, a global initiative to empower women and non-binary BIPOC creatives around the world.

Beyond that, Altogether champion young people as part of The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art career days, where we run creative workshops – to inspire, upskill and open doors for young people that wouldn’t normally have access to creative opportunities.

When we say ‘Altogether’ we mean it.

Let’s start as we mean to go on and get talking
