Mankind Moves Cave
It’s the dawn of a new era for Mankind Agency as the team moves into Victoria Foundry in the creative hub of Holbeck’s Urban Village in Leeds.
Creative director Ben Ducker and managing director Joe Costandi opened the digital design and video production company after almost a decade working for London’s leading advertising and creative agencies.
With the signing of a few exciting new clients (yet to be announced) the Mankind team have made the office move to evolve the business into what they hope will be the North’s leading creative agency.
Decorated with taxidermy of prehistoric creatures, hunting spears and vintage industrial furniture, the agency’s security (Bertie the French Bulldog) is anything but scary.
Open for Business
Mankind’s CD said, “During my time in a few of London’s top 10 ad agencies I worked with lots of talented northerners who felt they had to work for a London agency to make good work. I know that to be true, because I was one of them. I want Mankind to be a hub for that level of creative, producing brave and fresh work for exciting northern clients. As a result, we hope to prove to creatives and clients they can receive the same level of creative excellence seen in London right on their doorstep.”
Ben covers this idea in more detail in a soon to launch blog titled ‘Ending the creative migration’.
Mankind’s new cave is open for business and does great coffee (as do all good caves) so if you’re looking for a creative design agency with ambition and experience we would love to invite you in for a chat.
