Communications & Marketing Manager

Karbon Homes

I would have no hesitation in recommending Up North Communications. The company, led by Craig, is personable and friendly with a positive approach that builds long lasting professional relationships. Craig takes time to understand the needs of the client and maintains ongoing contact to ensure this remains the case.

Former Chief Executive

Byker Community Trust

Craig at Up North Communications was fantastic to work with on these important award submissions. He reacted quickly to our needs and delivered on time and with a successful outcome. We look forward to working with him again.

Business Development Manager


Twentyseven has worked with Up North Communications on a number of diverse projects. Craig has a can-do attitude, a passion for getting things right and is good fun to work with. Couple this with his undoubted marketing knowledge, eye for detail and straightforward approach means I would highly recommend Up North.

Richard Fowler, Creative Director

Twentyseven Brand and Design

Craig presented some ideas and concepts around how we could promote our school values, taking into consideration the diversity of our children and the various age groups. The values are professionally displayed around the school and we are delighted with the final result. We would highly recommend Up North Communications.

Mrs Brinton, Headteacher

Red Rose Primary School

Prior to launching The Hub, we needed to engage a creative forward-thinking agency that could not only develop a brand identity but could bring fresh new ideas and marketing concepts to market and advertise the centre to potential businesses across the North East. Up North Communications were instrumental in delivering the project on time and the quality of their work is to a very high standard.

Jillian Coleman, Centre Manager

The Hub Washington

Up North Communications has delivered a high quality video to showcase key aspects of Tyne Housing’s accommodation and support services. They understood the brief and our customer base and worked quickly and professionally throughout, providing direction and advice when needed.

Lettings Manager

Tyne Housing Association

We worked with Up North for over a year and I have been very impressed with their level of professionalism, creativity and the quality of work. Dealing with Craig himself means we get a personal service from an individual who is proud of his business, committed to giving a quality service and keen to explore new ideas and smarter ways of working.

Former Chief Executive


After many years of ad-hoc corporate literature, we engaged Up North Communications to design a professional and uniform look to all of our marketing material. We are thrilled with the results and received many compliments from our clients. We now use Up North Communications for all our design and marketing needs.
