Northstar was born in 2003 when four colleagues in the publishing industry decided to set up a creative agency with engaging storytelling at its heart. This editorial approach means all content created at Northstar – whether films, magazines, websites or content strategies – makes memorable connections with our audiences. 

We’ve won awards for our work, and are particularly proud of receiving the CMA's International Content Marketing Awards Grand Prix 2013, the top prize in our industry.

Our team 

Northstar’s four directors head up a team of talented editors, producers, writers and designers. Everyone at Northstar has an editorial background, so we know how to tell a good story.

Managing Director

Before launching Northstar in 2003, Mark founded EMAP’s pioneering content marketing division. He’s also published newsstand titles including Car Magazine.
