Elmwood moves down river to Water Lane

Global brand design consultancy Elmwood has moved its 60-strong Leeds team to a new headquarters on Water Lane, following a five-year search to find city centre office space.

This is the first move in more than two decades for the Leeds company, relocating from its previous space in Guiseley to a 9,473 foot space in Igloo’s Round Foundry estate.

Chairman Jonathan Sands said: “This is our fifth consecutive year of organic growth in which we’ve doubled our revenue and grown overseas by 500%, so it was the ideal time to put down new roots to accommodate our ever-expanding team.

“The right environment is important to our company culture. A move to the city centre is more convenient for clients and will help us to attract the best emerging talent in the industry to come and work for us.”
