DESIGN WITH SOUL

We are the loft. A design agency based in the heart of Glasgow.
We help our clients create inspiring brands using brand strategy, identity design, web design, graphic design, art-direction and social media communications.

‘Design with Soul’ is not just a tag-line,  it is a way of life. We uncover the ‘big idea’ lying at the heart of your brand and then bring it to life in the most imaginative way possible.
