Since 2008, we have been combining creativity and technology with human emotion to create experiences and solutions that attract attention, generate meaningful conversations and gain fans.

“Original, creative and with an innate understanding of their customer’s needs, the team at Blue Stag are a pleasure to work with”

Our manifesto

  1. Don’t just create. Solve

    We see every project as a strategic challenge. Our focus is not only to create beautiful solutions but to achieve the strategic ambitions of our clients.

  2. Build relationships, earn trust

    Success is built on relationships and trust. We aim to forge meaningful and long standing relationships with our clients.

  3. Create it with passion

    There are no boring assignments. Only solutions. We approach each new project with passion, eager to challenge ourselves and create something unique.

  4. Stay humble

    Work for the client, not for the fame. Making users happy matters more than any award.

  5. Be honest

    Tell the truth. No bullshit. We don’t pretend to be a full-service agency. If we don’t feel we’re right for your project, we’ll be straight with you.

  6. Wonder is more powerful than knowledge

    We aim to infuse the things we create with a sense of wonder. To entice, provoke and inspire. As Einstein once put it, “Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

  7. Make things simple

    Good design should make things feel less complicated. We apply this principle in the way we work.

  8. Do things that matter

    We care about the world we live in. We’ve got a soft spot for projects where we can use our creativity to make it a better place.

  9. A rising tide lifts all ships

    We give back to our industry and city, and nurture talent. We work with other agencies when it helps create better solutions and to help champion our industry.

  10. Have fun

    Because, what’s the point if we can’t all enjoy the ride?

Started on the frontier. Now we’re here.

We’ve been going strong since 2008. Ever since two pals fancied the whole ‘being adult’ thing after uni and started their own creative and digital agency. Now with over 11 years of experience and at home in Cardiff’s buzzing Tramshed Tech. With more fond memories than we can list here, we’re thrilled for the future.

More than just an agency

We build products to help us offer better services, help other people in the industry and skill up young creatives. Here’s some of the stuff we’re doing:


Brandbag is a scalable platform that allows agencies to smoothly hand over a completed project. It provides clients with a one-stop location for everything they need going forward. Brandbag also provides organisations with all brand assets in one easily-accessible location. This allows agencies, designers and freelancers to build a streamlined brand portal for their clients.

Take Away

Take Away is Blue Stag’s mentoring programme, seeking to help students make their way from education to industry. We’ve been through the same process ourselves, so we know the challenges. The Takeaway aims to share experiences, collaborate with bright minds and help talented students. (It also means we can have a beer on a school night).

    There’s a rustle in the Welsh woods that has been whispered about for generations. They believe it to be Blue. They say it’s not sasquatch, but Stag. All that’s been spotted is the odd antler in the overgrowth or hoofprint on the forest floor.

    We’ve taken matters into our own hands and set up a series of cameras to try and locate Seb the Stag for ourselves. Brave visitor, can you help us in our quest to unravel the mystery and marvel at the myth?
