Founded in 1990, we're an independent studio, and proud of it.
Imagine a world without the web or email — unbelievable huh? The world was certainly a very different place when we opened our doors 20 years ago. So what’s the secret to our success? We put it down to keeping to the same values as the day we started; understanding needs, working hard, creating great work and having a good time doing it. It’s these values that have resulted in long and successful relationships that we’re really proud of.
Lean but not mean. There are 12 of us. A team of gifted and experienced thinkers and doers. And we call on other specialist skills when we need them.
We may not be as big as some, but we sure punch well above our weight. We’re experts in design and production online and off and we work with strategists, writers, illustrators, photographers and developers who become extended members of our family as and when they’re needed. But no matter how big our team is, we have only one goal and that’s to keep your brand moving forward in every way.
Our clients come in all shapes and sizes. International corporations, nationwide businesses, SMEs, eager start-ups and inspired entrepreneurs.
Step through our door and you’ll find a diverse range of sectors that we work within. Healthcare, Financial, Charities, Pharmaceutical, Telecoms to name a few and we’re always exploring new sectors too. The breadth of our work is typically diverse too, from branding to corporate reporting, from marketing campaigns to web design.
Our work involves everything from naming, branding, literature and digital but starts with one fundamental question…
…what makes a great brand? That’s a question we’re constantly answering and re-evaluating. What we know for sure is that having a deep understanding about how brands behave and talk to their customers and employees is key. It’s this knowledge that enables us to create meaningful and relevant communications, whether it’s helping a new brand, revitalising an existing one, devising integrated campaigns or producing digital media.
Our approach focuses on understanding consumers, what makes them tick, what drives people to make the decisions they do…AND how we can influence them.
We don’t just jump straight to solution. The first thing we do is get under the skin of the brief. Understanding needs, goals and audiences, researching the market to see what’s happening out there…plus a whole host of other stuff. It is only then that we set to craft communications that are compelling and relevant.
