URBANGRAFIK was born following a series of successful collaborations between its 2 founding directors, Graphic Designer James Scott and Professional Photographer Dave Phillips. The combination of over 30 years of creative experience together with innovative ideas and attention to detail has resulted in this visionary partnership.
URBANGRAFIK have a strong affinity with the urban landscape and this is central to the inspiration and approach to many projects. URBANGRAFIK will strive to form a relationship between their bespoke surface graphics for an interior space with the surrounding area’s physical environment and its social patterns.
We pride ourselves on fusing our inspirational photography and design ideas with innovative materials to create tailor-made solutions for interior spaces. Each project is completely bespoke using our own photography and in-house design providing us with complete control and flexibility.
It also means we have a personal pride in ensuring the graphic reproduction and final execution is completed to the highest possible standard. It’s this bespoke capability that really does set us apart and provides limitless possibilities for our clients. View our recent projects.
We transform interior spaces with our bespoke surface graphics using a wide range of innovative materials. Be it a statement bespoke wall mural or some vibrant window graphics we can offer a personalised solution. In addition to walls, we can utilise other less typical surfaces such as brickwork, flooring, tiling, textiles and furniture – we thrive on a challenge.
This opens up a world of visual and textural possibilities that stimulate the environment in which they occupy. We are as passionate about embracing innovative materials for our projects as we are about design and photography so our ever expanding network of partners enables us to push our creativity to the limit. Got a question? Please contact us.
We are dedicated to developing our own image library of the urban landscape for use on our bespoke surface graphics and this portfolio is available to our clients. Where the project demands it, we will capture bespoke imagery to suit a specific geographic area or we may choose to supplement a photographic approach with a different design idea.
Our installation service ensures a successful execution of our bespoke surface graphics and attention to detail is key throughout our whole process. The environment is our inspiration and we have a responsibility to protect it by keeping up-do-date with technological advances that minimise our impact on the planet.

URBANGRAFIK work with businesses or individuals to transform an interior space with our bespoke surface graphics. We can also collaborate with a wide range of related businesses including architects, interior designers, retailers and property developers. On occasion we will consider residential projects depending on the project brief. If you are interested in working with us or if you have a project in mind please drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.
We wanted something different, exciting and motivating and got all 3 in abundance. Not being massively creative myself, we let URBANGRAFIK loose to create something special and this was achieved from start to finish in less than a month.
Everyone without exception loves the new look and is proud and excited to come to work every day. URBANGRAFIK were 100% professional in everything they did from design to decoration and installation. Go for it, you won't regret it!

Following the success of the work URBANGRAFIK completed for our head office in London they were asked to perform their magic in our Manchester office. Expectations were already high as the graphics installed in London had become a real talking point within the company and they certainly didn't let us down. They listened to our brief and over-achieved on all levels while still managing to marry-up the designs with London HQ.
The URBANGRAFIK team are a real pleasure to work with and the end results have been superb, creating a real buzz around the office. We are now looking at other regional offices to let the guys loose on! Many thanks for giving us an office we are genuinely proud of.

URBANGRAFIK helped us revolutionise the wall art within our flagship offices, and what a revolution it's been! We now have outstanding wall to ceiling art across key areas of each of our office floors, whenever we have visitors they are a real talking point and have helped us achieve the funky image we were after. Great design ideas, amazing photography and nothing is too much trouble.
Outstanding service from start to finish - and with the team having extremely critical eyes, no stone was left unturned to leave us with an immaculately perfect end result. I would not hesitate to recommend URBANGRAFIK, their work has not only brightened up our offices, but has put a spring in the step of our teams who now look onto glorious technicolour!

The partners at URBANGRAFIK helped propel LILA* to international fame when they created a unique learning environment in our new language school in Liverpool. We quickly became the talking point at every education fair and agents from all over the world have visited the school and said that it’s the best they have ever seen. This is all down to URBANGRAFIK's vision and ability to create something really special.
Students and staff alike love spending time in the school which creates an amazing energy. From conception to manifestation, the team were brilliant to work with. We had an idea of what we wanted but they really helped channel our ideas to ensure we achieved something really inspirational. We’re looking at opening a school in London and I wouldn’t even consider doing it without their input.
