Our Manifesto

Our Manifesto

In order to get the most out of your experience working with us, there are a few core values and principles that we need you to buy into, or at the very least know about before your project gets off the ground.

We are just like you

Leave your preconceptions of creative agencies at the door. We’re more like you than like them. We didn’t make the decision to go it alone as disgruntled creatives breaking away from larger agencies – two of our three directors have business degrees, and as such, every move we make is grounded in solid business knowledge.

We are thinkers and doers

We are focussed on bottom lines and delivering effective, impactful strategy, design and development. Our strategy is valuable, our design and digital solutions impactful, but together, they move brands forward and endure, balancing intuition with science and business acumen to achieve the result that makes the greatest impact on your bottom line.

We are equals

We don’t hesitate to question briefs and decisions, and ultimately stand our ground in matters of design and development. Without this willingness to challenge our clients, it is well-nigh impossible to develop the close, collaborative relationships we crave. We won’t tell you what you want to hear, unless it also happens to be what is right.

We are honest and accountable

If, for whatever reason, we aren’t the right fit for you or your business, or if your brief falls outside of our expertise, we will tell you and recommend the best people to approach next. If mistakes are ever made, or deadlines suddenly need extending, we will hold our hands up and accept responsibility – accountability is essential to us.

We work for your customers, not you

We don’t emphasise strategy out of voyeurism or procrastination, but to gain the level of understanding needed to help you reach your commercial goals. Subjectivity and personal taste have no place in our process. The design that we arrive at with all of the information we have gained may well be a noticeable departure from what you’re used to, but it’s not for you, it’s for your customers.
