Formerly Blue River but now called Founded, the Newcastle based agency have been through some major changes lately whilst still keeping a high standard of work. Completely redesigning their agency website and updating it with new and old work. They’ve been lucky enough to work with one of the North East’s best Art’s venues the Baltic and the quality and volume of work for them is envy inducing. Beautiful typography and layout work.

Founded have also moved studios which we managed to see a little of and the space is impressive. Speaking with Anthony from Founded;

We’ve recently moved to an amazing new space, the historic Stephenson Works building. The building, almost 200 years old, was the worlds first ever locomotive workshop and the long-time working home of Robert Stephenson.

Robert Stephenson (1803 – 1859), an MP and North East entrepreneur, was one of the founding fathers of the railway age. He designed and built the Rocket, the first passenger locomotive.

For any of you in the North East and looking to move to new challenges Founded are currently on the look out for a new midweight/senior designer. So get your folios sent in to Founded if you fancy the challenege.
