We build your sales by building your brand We do it in the most creative and cost-effective way possible ...itâ€™s as simple as that
About Us Our strength is in identifying what your business needs to grow, and delivering it with no dramas along the way. We are a highly creative and talented brand, marketing and communications agency. We attack every project from the same angle – our start point is ensuring that everything we do will deliver genuine results for you.
Our team has worked on some of the largest brands in the world across virtually every type of project, so nothing ever fazes us. Our clients are large and small, but whatever your size, you get the same attention, creativity, exceptional work and hopefully a few laughs along the way. Finally, and most importantly we pride ourselves on our integrity. We are always honest and straightforward when we deal with you, so we’re sure that you’ll enjoy working with us – hopefully for a very long time!
Our Approach Unlike plenty of people in our industry who like to wrap up what we do in a veil of mystery, buzzwords and smoke and mirrors, at The Agency we like to keep things simple. It helps us to be consistent and build long-term relationships with our clients, because everybody involved understands what’s going on, so there’s no nasty shocks along the way, just great work. We enjoy what we’re doing, but we don’t do things for fun. We always get under the skin of your brand, and only then do we decide what’s going to work for you. We start with a blank piece of paper and a pen, and always involve you in the process so that what we are trying to portray about your brand, you really believe in. We love to challenge your perceptions though, and hope that when we work with you we can create ideas that are unusual, interesting, arresting, and different from the mediocrity that some agencies think is acceptable.

Philosophy We’re here to build your business, not our egos. When you deal with the Agency we’re here to get the job done with the minimum of fuss and faffing about. This doesn’t mean though that we are laid back about what we want to achieve for you – far from it. Our aim is always to push you on to achieve your full potential, and be as successful as you can. We want to shout how good you are from the rooftops – the time for our traditional British reserve has long gone, you need to be upfront and ballsy about your strengths. If you don’t say it, your competitors certainly will, and win the business. We find out how good you are, and make damn sure everyone who needs to know both inside your organisation and in the outside world gets to know it!

Who We Are At The Agency we consciously took the crucial decision to make sure that we had the perfect blend of skills and experience that would really offer clients the complete service from concept to production.

We have the knowledge and experience to avoid the pitfalls and maximise the potential of any strategy. Our black book of like-minded partners provide creative services such as photography and illustration that help turn ideas into the exceptional finished pieces that make your brand stand out from the competition.

One simple advantage of working with The Agency though, is when you call us, you won’t be greeted on the phone by a rude receptionist, or a junior who doesn’t know his CMYK from WBA. You’ll talk straight to a senior member of staff who can help you there and then, so we all don’t waste our valuable time.

Sustainability IQ is a piece of software that measures the environmental impact a business has through logging everything from paper usage to energy efficency, it thereby allows users to create and implement an effective
Bespoke Interface design
CSR policy. Having conceived the original name, strap line and identity, our focus was on creating a brand that sat comfortably in the software market but also visualised its ‘green’ credentials. We created several strap lines to accompany the brand with the core message being ‘Accounting today for all out tomorrows’ which was a powerful headline, summing up the importance of sustainabilty in business. The Director of Radbournes said this about The Agency: “The Agency really stood out during the pitch process, not only for their strategic and creative work, but also for their down to earth approach. I can’t recommend working with The Agency highly enough”.

Servicom approached us as a ‘two way radio specialist’ struggling to stand out in the industry. We repositioned them by creating a sharper, more powerful identity with a supporting line that would elevate them from the competition: ‘The Power to communicate’. The work we did re-energised the brand both internally and externally by ensuring that people involved realised the importance of the work Servicom conducts and how they make a difference to peoples lives. The supporting marketing and literature featured organisations where communications are a matter of life and death, that Servicom support such as the fire service, The Red Cross and military with the line ‘Thank you Servicom’. The UK Business Development Manager had this to say:
“The Agency have really helped us to reposition how our brand is perceived both internally and externally. This revitalisation has elevated our reputation with customers and suppliers and certainly played a major part in us winning new work, with our turnover doubling over three
years. Keep up the great work!”

It’s how IT should be
EveryCloud Solutions are an innovative IT company that offer cloud based Windows software to businesses. From the outset we had a dual task of educating about cloud technology as well as promoting EveryCloud as the
authority on it. We created an identity that was simple and friendly while familiar using the Microsoft style through colour and graphic design. The strapline ‘It’s how IT should be’ refers to the simplicity, low running cost and hassle free nature of cloud based computing services – in-fact, the complete opposite of localised solutions!
