Hello YOU! We’d like to be upfront. We are here purely to give your brand an ‘unfair advantage’. We want to make your competitors tut and mutter under their breath.

Strategic Planning

If hearing the power of thought were possible, then this is probably where you’d hear it first. Through the use of qualitative and quantitative research and every conceivable data source, this is where the unfair advantage resides.

CREATIVE

The creatives. What to say. They are invariably inappropriate, have barely mastered the use of a knife and fork and like to roam in packs. But hey, they have wonderfully disciplined minds and the work they produce, be it for TV or a T-shirt, digital or a DPS is a bloody marvel. Yes, we salute them (from a distance).

MEDIA PLANNING AND BUYING

These guys are on it. Like a polar bear can sniff a seal from a mile away, the team never miss a media opportunity, or moreover, a deal – they always chase the value in the market. Be it a UK or European media strategy and buying brief, a social media campaign or a one-off strategic site, which targets a specific market of individuals – they do it all! Our guys work across all the media channels from digital to radio, from national press to cinema, from mobile to beer mats. They’ve got all the planning tools at their fingertips and know every trick of the trade. Dare to dare them.

PR

“Oh daaaaarlingggg.” Grrrr… we could squeeze the PR guys. An unstoppable force of column inches and awards. If the office were a catwalk, the PR guys would walk no differently. But boy, these guys know how to oil the wheels (or do we mean heels…?!) and cajole the media channels. You wanna be the story? Then come stir the hornets’ nest.

SOCIAL MEDIA

(MORE than 140 characters) Our social team may appear to always be on Facebook but they assure us it’s all work, work, work! But having helped Rolls-Royce go from no social presence to being the 3rd most prolific in the FTSE 100 in a little over a year, we can only believe them! (MORE than 140 characters yet?).
