25 years of delivering intelligent marketing solutions

A lot has changed since 1994 and we continually develop and expand our capabilities to challenge the norm and find new ways of thinking and engaging.


Independently owned, we have enjoyed over ten years of consistent growth, and serve over 80 clients across the UK from our converted barn in Warton, near Preston, Lancashire.

The ICG Family

We promote a sense of togetherness that we call the ‘ICG family’. The agency comprises of 22 talented and creative people - they are our most important asset.

We have a staff structure that encourages openness, creativity and a sense of collaboration, with a nonhierarchical structure where all ideas are equally valued, no matter how many years you’ve been here.

Over half of our team has been with ICG for more than five years, with many having been with us for 10 years or more.

Our Culture

Birthday cakes baked by your colleagues, quarterly company lunches, summer BBQ’s and a Christmas jumper day - and not forgetting our awesome annual trip abroad.

We have developed a culture of 'hard work with fun along the way' that creates an energetic, positive atmosphere.

  • A workplace with wellbeing at its heart - voted Fylde Active Workplace of the Year
  • Ethos of collaborative working to get the best results for our clients
  • Regular working lunches sharing insights and the latest industry trends
  • The annual ICG weekend to Europe - who doesn’t want Alicante at the end of January!
  • From talks at local schools to supporting local charities, we like to be socially responsible

Our Studio

Our home is a converted barn that we have transformed into a hub of creativity. With stand up desks and openplan workspaces, our bright, modern studio encourages collaboration, movement and ideas.

We have a number of break-out areas as well as a pool table and darts room, cafe, outdoor eating space and photography studio.

It’s a warm and welcoming environment for client meetings, working lunches and to work directly alongside clients to meet tight deadlines.


We are always thrilled to win awards and have been recognised by over 30 awards in the creative sector, including Small Agency of the Year at the Northern Marketing Awards 2018.
