About Paragon

one of the world's leading experiential design and build companies

Paragon Creative is one of the world’s leading experiential design and build companies, offering an unrivalled range of in-house, integrated services, from specialist exhibition design development and fit-out, to interactive exhibits and scenic artwork.

Based in the historic city of York, we began our story in the 1980s as the creative workshop of the JORVIK Viking Centre, where our unique scenic and interactive approach would revolutionise the world of heritage visitor attractions. Since then, Paragon Creative has completed over a thousand successful projects in the UK and worldwide, including 17 award-winning projects in the last decade.

We work with clients in a variety of exciting sectors, including museums, heritage and science centres, commercial and leisure, theme parks and attractions, zoos and aquariums, FECs and experiential learning. Recent clients have included Historic Royal Palaces, Imperial War Museum, the Science Museum, the Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Titanic Belfast, Hamleys Toy Stores, Dubai Parks and Resorts, and ZSL London Zoo.

Paragon Creative employs a talented workforce of close to 120 creative and technical specialists, drawn from a variety of backgrounds within the creative, engineering and manufacturing industries. Our full 52,300 square feet of workshop and studio facilities make us the largest and most well-equipped creative company in the UK exhibitions industry. Paragon Creative is part of the Paragon Entertainment Ltd group of companies, listed on the AIM London Stock Exchange and with the financial controls and resources to deliver complex and ambitious multimillion-pound projects. All works by Paragon Creative conform to the quality management requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2015.
