A digital agency from the North keeping your brand from going south.

We're all about digital thrill-seeking, working with you to create those lightbulb moments.

Driven by curiosity.

We understand that the industry is forever changing, and we want to change with it.

That's why we place ourselves at the forefront of new technologies, implementation & creative discovery. Nobody wants to be left in the dark - so we dig deep into new technologies to ensure we thoroughly understand them before we apply them.


We strive to be at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies. Researching, building and understanding the technologies so that they’re the perfect fit for our projects.


Honesty is the only policy. We have a long-term relationship mindset, not short-term fixes. We know the only way to achieve that is with attentiveness, care and openness.


We are a strong team of developers, animators, creatives & strategists who have worked in the industry for years. Pushing our skillset to understand the solutions that work for your project.


The best way to achieve results? Together. By working closely in partnership at every stage of the process, we make sure to get the most out of your vision.


Technologies, terminology and software can all get a bit confusing. We process the right information and communicate it back to you in a way you’ll always understand - with zero fuss!


Our process and internal infrastructures are designed to keep communication simple and accessible. Giving you frequent updates exactly when you need them.

Motion 12 was founded in 2018 by Sam, our managing director. After several years of agency and freelance work, he realised how much clients valued his unique process of animation-led digital design. He had an innate ability to tell a story with his work and wanted to forge a team of like-minded individuals who would unveil the heart behind the brand, a story behind the product - and be excited to do it.

Where we are now…

Since then we have grown into a close-knit team of 7 specialising in creative design, animation and software development. We're located in the heart of Leeds, working with clients and partners worldwide. Every member of the team has a real passion for what they do - bringing distinctive skills and a wealth of experience to the table. We think big, we promote change, we thrive off telling your stories, sharing your beliefs and delivering experiences that will leave you buzzing.

Have an idea? It's time to tell your story.

"High production value."

"M12 has always put together great looking sites with a high production value and good UX for my web development briefs over the last few years, across a range of sectors. Sam and the team are easy to work with and their client service is responsive and aware, in a day where that's sadly a dying art."
