WHAT WE DO
ELK Marketing delivers real-world marketing solutions to businesses large and small. Our strapline - 'Creative hearts, business heads' - underpins everything we do. We have creative hearts - and enjoy creating logos, websites and print design. But marketing isn't just about looking pretty, it's also about bottom-line results. So we have business heads as well - we want to design marketing solutions which achieve real results for you and your business.

We’re a marketing agency based in Beverley, East Yorkshire (near Kingston upon Hull).
We have clients across England and Scotland, as well as America, Europe and Africa. We have even been known to do work in Japanese and Thai!
We like to think we’re nice people, but we’re not afraid to speak our minds and tell it how it is. We have half a dozen good ideas before our mid-morning coffee break, but we're realistic enough to know that what matters isn't just the idea, but the implementation and the follow through.
Honesty and integrity are key to how we work with people, but at the same time we think it’s important to have a bit of fun along the way.
We have oodles of experience (not to say quite a few qualifications), but never stop learning and remain open minded to new ways of doing things.
It's not an acronym, we just like animals with antlers.

ELK fact no 3
Adult males weigh 320–330 kg. We promise we are slimmer.
We are small but perfectly formed. We value creativity, but what really drives us is delivering bottom line results for our clients. Years of experience working with SMEs has taught us that marketing activity should have a return on investment. Go on, give us a call (you know you want to).

We’ve just completed www.andrewswalks.co.uk – this is a walking diary for a local solicitor who is also an incredibly talented landscape and wildlife photographer. The challenge was that Andrew had been creating a completely static website, which over the years had grown to over 700 walks and over 25,000 pictures. Because it was ‘static’, each[…]
We’ve really enjoyed creating a new brand, website and supporting materials for Simpatico Communications. After competing a branding wheel exercise, we identified one of the key words to describe their brand – ‘nice’. Some people might think this is an insipid word, but we often refer to people as ‘nice’ and mean something 100% positive:[…]
We’ve recently completed a brand identity for a new estate agency, Mulberry Residential. Logo development can often be a fraught process when a group of people are involved with differing opinions as to what works and doesn’t work! Thankfully this was a more straightforward process – the colour was a relatively simple choice (we looked[…]

We’ve done a number of book covers in the past for Harry Clacy, a local author who has branched out in a number of different military topics after starting with his own army service memoirs. This is his most recent publication – edited diaries from WWI. We used some of the classic WW1 recruitment posters[…]
Video repeatedly gets better engagement statistics in Facebook than text or photos – check out your own Insights on your Facebook business page to see if this is true for you. Facebook has been working hard behind the scenes to encourage people to use and engage with video – videos now run automatically, whether you[…]
Have you ever met somebody who doesn’t seem able to empathise with other people? They don’t ask questions about you, they just talk about themselves all the time. It’s exhausting, isn’t it? And have you come across companies who do the same? It’s usually smaller businesses who haven’t yet understood that marketing is about understanding[…]
And what does it say about you and your brand? We’ve all heard the mantra that it’s not what you say but what you do that’s important. In the world of sponsorship and business partnerships, the people and organisations with whom you associate says a lot more than what you have written down on the[…]
We recently did a series of small print adverts for a professional will writer. The challenges of this were: the adverts were very small, so copy needed to be kept to a minimum the adverts would appear in a local print magazine surrounded by other adverts, so they needed to catch the reader’s attention immediately[…]
If you asked ten different people to list the five most important elements of a well designed website, you’d probably get ten different answers. My five would be: It needs to take account of your target market & drive engagement. It needs to take account of your target market & drive engagement. It needs to[…]
