What we do

Harpoon Productions makes digital content - text, video, podcasts, and social. We’re newly formed, but we’re not new to creating the best and most engaging online content - we’ve been developing techniques which drive the best content on the UK’s biggest websites.

With audiences in their millions, we have been leading the way in producing longform, immersive and narrative journalism, plus digital videos, newsletters, quizzes, and shortform content for social. We know what really reaches people.

We are now helping publishers, content providers and brands bring digital impact to their work. We can provide and deliver finished content, or we can advise you and help you with yours.
