The Leith Agency

Established in 1984, The Leith Agency is regarded as one of the most consistently creative marketing agencies of the last 25 years by creating famous advertising for brands such as Carling, Honda, IRN-BRU and Tennent’s Lager. Based in the docks of Edinburgh its challenger attitude has seen the agency punch way above its weight and win international business away from the bright lights of Soho and New York. This success has been founded on its strategic savvy represented by the largest planning and insight department outside the M25 (and one of the biggest inside). Recent developments have seen Leith innovate these skills into a wide range of disciplines and have included; staging successful world record attempts for IRN-BRU, promoting Scotland at the Shanghai Expo, award winning direct marketing for SEAT, developing partnership marketing, digital planning and creating a new venture Leith Records to help promote local Scottish music.
