Advertising and marketing agencies exist to help your business make more profit. Our particular skill is to enable you to communicate with the consumer of your product or service in the most efficient way possible. But communication is a two-way process, before we talk we listen, we invest our time to understand your business and your market before recommending any creative approach.

The First One Hundred Years

When Stuart Hirst Limited first opened its doors the First World War had just ended and George V and Queen Mary were on the throne. The average weekly wage was £1 11s 6d and that year Alcock and Brown made the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic. In Germany Walter Gropius founded the Bauhaus Movement.

The world of the advertising agency was in its infancy and yet companies have been looking at ways to promote their products and services since the industrial revolution. Strong brands, still recognisable today, such as Coca Cola and Cadbury had already emerged, what was needed were people that understood how consumers thought and the best way to reach them. Stuart Hirst, a former employee of Yorkshire Post Newspapers, was one such person and he established the first independent advertising agency outside the USA.

Since that time Stuart Hirst the company has been in the vanguard of most advertising and marketing techniques and technologies but its values and competencies remain as fresh today as they were back in the early part of last century. Importantly the company still retains a no nonsense, grounded approach to understanding the consumer and utilises original and inspired creativity to communicate with them in the most cost effective way.
