Bate Brand Communications was founded by Mark Bate, graphic designer and brand management specialist, who felt that small to mid-sized organisations were missing out on effective brand identity programmes, typically supplied by the larger design and marketing agencies. In the search for an alternative solution Bate Brand was born. Mark’s guiding principles of integrity, respect and passion were prominent in every relationship he forged along the way.

Frustrated with the bureaucratic ways and high costs of agency practises?
Tired of freelancers not pulling a big enough punch or fully understanding your strategic business needs?
At Bate Brand we have developed an alternative business model that makes it possible for organisations to tap into first-class branding expertise from seasoned industry professionals without it costing the earth.
We specialise in helping growth-oriented small and mid-sized businesses do more with less through the design and implementation of hard working brand communications: identity, literature, exhibitions, web and print.
our business model
Bate has very few full time staff and we are not tied to an elaborate office in an ivory tower. Our highly experienced team work remotely (all based in the UK); we select from and collaborate with our network of independent, senior-level consultants on an as-needed basis, ensuring flexibility and a tailor-made fit for your organisation. Consultation, strategy, creative leadership, project management, production supervision and administrative tasks are handled in-house eliminating costly overheads and expenses. This enables us to pass our savings directly on to our clients, making our fees up to 50% less than some of our competitors.
Bate Brand becomes whatever you need us to be, for every project, without sacrificing quality.
