About Us

Like most good ideas, we came up with Tainted Media in a pub. The Old Hall in Heckmondwike to be specific, in early 2012 over a pint or two of Sam Smith's Sovereign bitter. The name came from Pure Brew Lager, another Samuel Smith's favourite, but "pure" doesn't really suit us. A quick think about a suitable antonym gave us Tainted and Media gave us licence to do anything digital we wanted. Tainted Media was incorporated on the 1st of June 2012 with a small office in a quiet corner of Redbrick in Batley. We moved to new premises on Kirkstall Road, Leeds in Februrary 2017.

Just to be clear, the name has nothing to do with Soft Cell. If you are looking for a professional company to design printed materials, build you an e-commerce or CMS website or to help you improve your existing assets, we can do all of that and much more. We take a lot of pride in our creative talent and ability to deliver special designs.
