About The Business

Nineteen5 is one of the UK’s fastest growing graphic design agencies, based in Kingston-upon-Thames in South London.

The company was founded by Michael Neligan in 2018 and launched officially in 2019 around the time of the time of birth of his first-born son, Lucas.




Juggling a new-born and an agency was not easy for Neligan previously of mega-agency Brands2Life. The young entrepreneur was freelancing and putting any income he earned towards starting Nineteen5 that has found a niche in corporate events and health clubs.

During covid-19, the agency engineered a fully white-labelled solution for two of the UK’s largest health clubs, allowing gym members to attend online classes and circuits, whilst recording their bookings and maximising online security (after the client experienced a hack with Zoom).
