Welcome to the studio

We're motivated by great ideas, shaped by strategy and refined by beautiful design. That's what makes brands stand out from the crowd and speak for themselves – and it prepares them for an exciting future.

Zoe can turn her hand to most things creative and she relishes the challenge. As well as a passion for design and type, she loves films, television and comics and keeps us all up-to-date with popular culture. Who'd have thought Fleetwood Mac could be cutting edge again?

Our network

With so many communication channels available you need to entrust your brand to an agency that can cover all the bases.

We're part of a community of creative professionals and can build a team to deliver even the most challenging briefs. Our flexible approach offers you a top-level experienced creative and production team – without breaking the budget.

Brand strategy

We work closely with brand strategist Caroline Hanna, an experienced marketeer with pan-European experience in consumer goods. She'll help you with audience definition, identity mapping, communications planning and other strategic aspects of brand creation.

Content and copy writing

Everyone loves a good story well told. You can encourage people to your brand with a strong narrative and compelling tone of voice and we can bring talented brains into the team to develop the right content for every channel.

Photography

We have long-standing relationships with some awesome photographers and can recommend the best one for the job – and to make the process easy for you, we can direct and manage photo shoots on your behalf, making sure your brand is portrayed at its best.

Video

Digital technology brings film and video within reach of all businesses and it offers a great channel for getting your stories out there. We work closely with script-writers, directors and videographers who can bring their unique vision to your project.

Illustration

Illustration is a powerful way to give a project its own distinctive style and unique personality. From technical diagrams and CGI models to conceptual interpretations, we can bring the best talents into our team.

Media planning

We work with independent marketer Caroline Hanna to plan and co-ordinate integrated marketing campaigns based on sound research and solid data. Together we identify key audiences, insights and channels of communication to achieve maximum cut-through.

Media buying

To get the most from your advertising spend, you need a great creative campaign combined with hard data and intelligent placement. We work with a local media partner to squeeze the very best value from our clients’ media budget. Contact us to find out more.

Coding and programming

We work with techies that really know their stuff and have a can-do attitude to creating a fully-branded, content-rich experience. We use technology for what it can do for your brand, not the other way around.

Market research

We use research to uncover insights, monitor trends, reveal consumer behaviour and validate creative approaches. We work with a handful of great researchers to provide qualitative and quantitative research as required.

Focus group testing

There is a great skill in getting people to open up and fully engage with what's being discussed – and then to harvest and distil the insights into a clear direction for your brand. It's too valuable to leave it to chance, give us a call to get the experts invloved.

Pre-production

Great ideas deserve great production, whether that's in print, video, broadcast media, social media or exhibitions – and that means working with dedicated professionals whose attention to detail borders on obsessive! They're the guys that make the dreams come true.

Print & production

We work with a select group of suppliers to offer great value for print, exhibition materials and web management. We take care of your project up to the point of delivery, working with our suppliers to make sure it reaches our exacting standards on time and within budget.
