We’re a creative agency
that builds human experiences.


We believe that immersive experiences drive human connections. We craft the places and
spaces needed to turn connections into moments - evolving the way people engage,
understand, and grow.

Human beings are constantly searching for new ways to make their hopes
and dreams a reality - so that’s who we design for.


It's that simple.

Our Values


We are Brave

It’s the way we speak and the way we present ourselves. We are bold, disruptive and fun – this is how we distinguish ourselves from some of the more strait-laced and established players in our market. That’s not to say we’re arrogant, we are Human Built, which means we always act with humility and respect, but when we do a job well we should shout about it and celebrate.

Our team always remembers that we have a touch of class, and that is the hallmark of the quality work we produce.

We are Dependable

When the rubber meets the road, it’s us with our foot on the gas. In our line of work, there’s nothing more valuable to our clients than knowing someone has their back – and that’s us. When the job gets tough, we don’t back down; we stay until the job is done and it meets our exacting standards.

On a personal level, it means that the team looks out for you. If someone asks you for help the answer is always “yes!” and the question is “how can I help?”.

Dependability + sincerity = trust

We are Inquisitive

Inquisitiveness also informs our attention to detail. As we all know, the old saying goes “the devil is in the detail” and our attention to detail is second to none.

We are forensic creatives, planning for every eventuality in everything we do. Our client’s success is our success.

We are Mindful

We are compassionate in all things. Whether it’s the people we work with or the planet we share. The clue is in our name, we are Human Built, and we look after them wherever we meet. It’s about empathy for the colleagues we work with and the visitors we provide experiences for, Human Built is accessible to all. We’re also environmental stewards, paying close attention to the way we operate and the stock we use.

If it can’t be reused or recycled, is it the right product or can we use an alternative? We only have one planet Earth, so let’s leave a lasting impression on our audiences and nothing else.

We're Part of Something BIGGER


Creating any kind of experience means bringing a multidisciplinary team together to work as one. As your single point of contact, we’ll manage our network of sister companies from the Paragon Group to make the magic happen.

Our job is to leave a lasting impression on your clients, not our planet. We stand wholeheartedly behind this statement - which is why we’ve worked tirelessly to research, and invest in, sustainable alternatives to our print processes and materials. The result is our Eco-Range; a collection of materials that are completely recyclable and replaces harmful products without compromising on quality.

Our continued research into evolving the way we work means that you can trust us to deliver top quality products, whilst you save money and look out for the planet we all share.
