Prints with Purpose

We Built The World - Prints with Purpose


Profits from every purchase go directly towards supporting the local causes and community organisations that are closest to our hearts. This is part of our ongoing agency commitment to build a better place to live, learn and work; all while celebrating Teesside’s character, creativity and spirit of innovation.

As patrons of The Teesside Charity, and 5th Wheel Members of Headlight Project, we’re deeply embedded in frontline services that are making a vital difference to people in our region. From raising awareness to being involved in activities and events, this commitment is our small way of recognising the importance of these purpose-driven champions.

We’re also heavily invested in education, particularly promoting young talent across the creative industries. Partnering with Teesside University, The Northern School of Art, BBC Bitesize and Design Business Association, we play an active role in developing and retaining talent through work experience, internships, studio visits and career talks. Our strong links with The Northern School of Art has allowed us to shape course content and ensure students are more prepared for the world of work.

But our pledge to the next generation doesn’t end there. Serving as business members of High Tide Foundation, we’re a key delivery partner of their industry-informed programmes. These courses open the door for students, focussing on not just increasing work-based skills and awareness, but also on improving life skills, changing attitudes, developing networks and building ambitions. Our Managing Director, Mark Easby, is also chairman of the foundation, leading its board of trustees, which has engaged over 6500 young people and 150 businesses so far.

The Better Communities Fund further supports not-for-profit organisations who are removing barriers, reducing inequalities and raising aspirations. This initiative sees over £30,000 worth of resource, skills and time donated annually, allowing us to add value and provide expertise to those who need it most. Recent examples include Daisy Chain and Our Hospitals Charity, who have benefited from strategic brand thinking, as well as design and digital development.

Through the power of print, we’re honouring our heritage while investing in our future. Every sale will help inspire the next wave of designers, developers, brand builders and beyond. It will help us realise the potential of our region, supporting communities and contributing to an inclusive economy that’s at the heart of a thriving Tees Valley.
