Inside the Company

Founded in 1977, Elmwood has grown from a single studio based in Leeds to a successful international design consultancy based in four cities worldwide, with over 200 employees.

Mission and Values

Elmwood strives to help brands build meaningful and strategic design solutions.

The agency’s core mission is to help brands become more memorable.

The team designs distinctive visual and verbal identity systems that ensure any brand is recognised in the blink of an eye – wherever it shows up.

Creating iconic global and local brands is at the heart of everything the team does.

Culture and Benefits

At Elmwood, the team strives to create a positive and collaborative working environment where everyone is encouraged to be themselves, bring their insights to the table, and grow both professionally and personally.

Flexibility and trust are core values engrained across the studio’s working style and culture to prioritise employees' mental and physical well-being.

The studio follows an Anchor Thursday approach asking the team to come together once a week for a collaborative in-person studio day, and allowing members to work from home for the rest of the week.

Flexible working and 3pm finish Fridays are in place as well to accommodate individual needs.

The team places focus on encouraging a culture that is inclusive, caring, and welcoming.

The DE&I committee hosts regular talks, events, and inspiring content to educate and celebrate – such as an annual Elmwood Pride.

The London team is also able to merge travel and work, having the ability to work from anywhere for up to four weeks throughout the year with the studio’s ‘workcation’ policy.
