About Bag of Bees

We are a design studio based in Belfast, Northern Ireland formed by Barrie Holden and David Woods in 2011. Since then we have grown in size and capability, bringing together further experience in brand design, web design & graphic design.

Bag of Bees Office

In our studio, designers work directly with clients to get the best outcome from every job. We believe that working with a design team should be an overwhelmingly positive experience and our clients have responded by trusting us to deliver more and more of their requirements. They enjoy working with us because of our ability, enthusiasm and patience. And because we take the time to check.

We work for multinational companies and sole traders alike, across a broad spectrum of sectors. We take the time to get to know our clients, to understand their organisation and what they need and how best to talk to their customers. Ensuring they get the results they desire.
