Funding for North East Businesses

DA Group is a digital development and design team, who have been working with local, national and international businesses in all aspects of marketing since we opened our doors in 1991.

With 25 years' experience, our close knit team of experts has taken the time to listen, advise and collaborate with customers. Those clients put their trust in us to bring their ideas to life. We’re a mixed bunch with backgrounds in marketing, design, digital development and journalism so we've got plenty of knowledge amongst us that will help support your business. In addition to providing our clients with the best available marketing tools, we pride ourselves on being able to offer a personalised support service (something that many others can't offer) and we value client input to constantly adapt and develop our products.
