This is Crushing.

Creating brands and helping them to evolve their story.

Crushing is an Independent creative studio working on branding, print and digital projects. Delivering bespoke creative solutions that help clients communicate their core values, engage their audiences and accomplish results.

 

Core strengths range from Brand identity and print solutions through to digital design and illustration. Either working with small and medium-sized enterprises or collaborating with other design studios, quality of work will remain equal and with the aim to be delivered beyond expectation.

Approach

It’s quite common these days that agencies provide a ‘full service solution’, have hundreds of staff, and many layers to their organisation.

Crushing doesn’t.

Being specialists in design, projects are approached in a collaborative way with clients, focussing all of our skills, creating with and communicating clearly with the people who pay crushing to do exceptional work.

Where as you may meet many sales people, heads of departments, marketing managers and CEO’s as part of your pitch process; the likelihood is that these may not be the people you actually deal with day-to-day on your project.

The people you meet at Crushing are the actual people you would deal with and work with until completion of your project – so if you like the people you meet, it could be a perfect match.

Crushing was founded in 2013 by James M Foster

Born from the London College of Fashion where the study of illustration guided him towards graphic design. Over 15 years of experience in the creative industry has opened the doors to work on a number of global clients applying his skills as a multi-disciplinary designer to help build brands.

Why Crushing you ask?

Having such a close connection to his roots in Sheffield, James made the decision to keep it in the family. His Fathers business was installed in the steel industry (surprisingly since based in Sheffield) more specifically the precious metal called Titanium. His father first set up shop on a small road named canal street in the heart of the city. Taking the name of the street and linking this to the main service of the company, Canal Crushing Ltd was established. So the decision as made, Canal was dropped and creative took its place and Crushing Creative Ltd was founded.
