Agency roundup: Lyon & Lyon; Engage; and more

Agency owners Ben and Mat Lyon

Lyon & Lyon, a creative design agency, is celebrating achieving its best month in sales so far during May.

The Sheffield-based agency, which has celebrated its 10th year in business this year, has also launched some innovative new brands.

It has worked with disruptive haircare brand, SITCH, which sought the agency’s expertise in branding, naming and packaging its new high performance, clean hair care range.

The result of this collaboration was “first-of-its-kind” packaging which focuses on sustainability, with refillable bottles that are not only designed to look attractive, but fit together seamlessly, saving space in bathrooms and creating eye-catching displays in salons.

Lyon & Lyon CEO, Ben Lyon, said: “It’s been an epic month at Lyon & Lyon, now dubbed ‘May-hem’ by our team.

“Not only did we launch some incredible new brands such as Bright Biotech, but we achieved our best month yet in sales since we launched 10 years ago.

“We were also asked to judge the NAPA Baltic Packaging awards in Lithuania, where we gave a series of talks, and to top it off won the Best In Show at the Dieline Awards.”

SITCH creative director, Anthony Edge, added: “We are the first professional haircare range to be 100% fillable, and have already sold out of stock just two days after launching in the LA Market.

“We now have a pre-order waiting list, which is a testament to the product and the design.”

Lyon & Lyon specialises in branding, packaging design, animation and marketing, catering to businesses focused on making a positive global impact on the world.

The agency was an early adopter of the four-day workweek and its team operates both remotely across the UK and from its offices in Sheffield and Wales.


Leeds-based digital agency, Engage, has partnered with independent day school, The Grammar School at Leeds, after a competitive bid process for its digital contract.

The latest win for the Leeds-based agency will include a diverse brief focused on an initial website re-platform.

Engage will evolve The Grammar School at Leeds website, which is powered by Craft CMS (content management system).

Sue Woodroofe, principal at the school, said: “We’re excited to partner with a local Leeds-based agency to develop our new website.

“Engage is absolutely the perfect choice to drive our goals forward, particularly with their expertise in developing sector-leading, user first websites and their experience of the education market.”

Dom Mernock, director at Engage, said: “It’s great to be able to announce that we’ve formed a new partnership with The Grammar School at Leeds.

“It’s an exciting, innovative school with core values that strongly align with our own as a B Corp, putting purpose at the top of the agenda.”


Leeds-based marketing agency, Circus PPC, has secured new client wins including The Green Company, Distance Learning Centre, and Century Business Finance.

This comes alongside the agency’s anticipated move into its new office space, which takes up an entire floor, with additional features such as an extended dining area, extra meeting rooms, and working space to facilitate agency growth of up to 30 members of staff.

Despite the investment in the new office space, the agency continues to operate with a hybrid working model.

Rick Tobin, managing director, said: “We’re a growth-focused agency not only for our clients, but for ourselves.

“The office move was necessary in order for us to continue growing the team and taking on clients at the rate we have been doing, and welcoming a number of recent clients during this period of change highlights exactly that.

“I’m really excited for the future of the agency, and look forward to continuing to deliver outstanding PPC services to our fantastic clients.”
