Come on in, we’ll get the kettle on.

We create beautiful websites, printed material, brands, videos and (most importantly) coffee.

Ink & Water is a full-service design agency, specialising in branding, website development, print design and video production.

We’re a team of seven (if you count the dog) and call Sheffield our home – Kelham Island to be specific.

We’re a pretty down-to-earth bunch. We don’t do pretentious and we don’t do esoteric; just great design at a fair price, from friendly, hard working people.

Our clients are a mixed bag of charities, musicians, universities, local businesses, PLCs and public sector organisations. Anyone and everyone is welcome. In particular, we love working with clients over the long term – helping them develop their brand over time as trends change, new markets open up and fresh challenges arise. Why not take a look at some of our work?

Our office - 3A Brooklyn Works, with dylan the retriever by the front door

Our digs

Our studio is based in Brooklyn Works, a Grade II listed building and former steelworks on the banks of the river Don. The building was constructed in the mid 19th century for Alfred Beckett & Sons Ltd, whose original sign is still proudly displayed above our front door. Most notably, the site was used for the construction of steel used in the Brooklyn Bridge, hence the building’s name.

Feel free to come down for a coffee and a chat about your next project any time, our door is always open.
