Welcome to HarrimanSteel – an independent creative agency that will surprise, provoke, motivate and challenge. We may even turn the corners of your mouth up a little.
Who we are?
We established HarrimanSteel in 1999 to explore a multi-channel approach and our commitment to that vision remains strong. We are real people who know a bit about creativity and strategy and know these are powerful allies. We believe in open and honest conversations to get the best results.
We are a 12 strong team of creatives, strategists and project managers who believe in collaborating, being agile, fleet-of-foot and building specific teams for specific clients and projects, rather than a one size fits all approach. We like to think of ourselves as more of a snuggly fitting mitten or vestibule for your hand.
What we do?
We approach every client and every project with the same unbridled enthusiasm and zest to create communications that will increase sales, get talked about, be remembered and make a difference. We pride ourselves on doing things well, with style, craft and passion. Hopefully making all involved in the process feel better about themselves and high fiving and shouting Yeaahhhh goddamit we love HarrimanSteel they know their onions!
Who we do it with?
We want to work with like-minded people who want to create famous brands that get talked about (a lot). We would like to go on that journey with you, we hope that you enjoy the ride.
We are currently working closely with
these lovely clients:
House of Fraser

We’ve been working with the super talented guys over at Tokyo Fixed Gear for some time now, on making the best bike shop in London, even better.
Expect a complete re-brand, re-location and sexy new London flagship store, and all round custom bike building palace located in Soho’s historic Golden Square. All will be revealed in the very near future.
IdN v19n6 features our lovely little short film for fashion designer Charlotte Taylor. The Motion Gallery is themed around Pattern & Symmetry.
“The possibilities for symmetry and pattern-making in design are literally endless. Transforming mathematical measurements into aesthetically pleasing works of art is a task that increasing numbers of animators are setting themselves. We look at this latest trend in motion graphics through the eyes some of those who have become particularly adept at it”. IdN
I think they must mean us. To check the film out you can do one of four things. a) look no further than our site. b) visit our vimeo account c) visit Charlotte Taylors website, which coincidentally we also designed OR d) buy the latest issue of IdN, as there is some rather lovely work in the magazine and on the DVD by some other nice folks.
Because two wheels are better than four…
They say a dog looks like it’s owner, can a bike look like it’s rider? Cyling has become as much of a self-expression as it has a method of getting from A-B. ‘Spokespeople’ is a series of characters created for Do the green thing’s Creativity Vs. Climate Change poster campaign, that celebrates the eccentricities, personalities and quirks of the city cyclist.
Explosives, flowers, ear plugs and a very high shutter speed…
These were all on hand at our most recent shoot. Anything that needs an arming key must be fun! We are working on an exciting new project, we will keep you posted in due course. Watch this space.

It’s ‘Read for RNIB Day’ on 19th October and HarrimanSteel have won the pitch through Creative Brief, to create a multi sensory experience for the weekend long pop-up event.
‘Read for RNIB Day‘ is a fundraising event which aims to open up a world of reading to blind and partially sighted people. Only seven per cent of books are accessible to blind and partical sighted people with support and donations RNIB aimed to increase this figure.
HarrimanSteel have developed a Alice and wonderland theme and created a sensory wonderland in the middle of Southwark. Be led through the Alice and wonderland rabbit hole to discover a new multi sensory story telling experience. Inside you will uncover a life size pop up book colourfully decorated with Helen Oxenbury illustrations, areas to experience the different senses engaged when enjoying a story and a larger than life exploding pack of cards.
Here is a teaser of some of the imagery that will be coming to the event at Cathedral Square on the South Bank on Thursday 18th October.
Help RNIB ensure all children can experience the magic of books. So pop along from 17th-19th to enjoy a day of story telling and see how HarrimanSteel can transport you into a magical world of story telling.
We are excited to be currently working with environmental charity Do The Green Thing for their bicycle appreciation month.
Do The Green Thing is a not-for-profit organisation that inspires people to lead a greener life. Here is a glimpse of their latest video ‘In Einstein’s Garden’ which was filmed at the Green Man Festival this year. It shows how a gig in the rain powered totally by a committed pedalling crowd can be a whole lot of green fun.
Our work with Do The Green Thing will be revealed very soon.
