Information on the company

Our client is a digital-first creative agency, operating as a division of a larger mobile advertising agency, that was originally founded in 2011.

In early 2014, they sold a share of the business to a global media agency, giving them the strength and backing of a major advertising and media network. But we stayed true to their roots with a culture and atmosphere of a start-up, with all the energy and opportunity for talent that brings.

Although their roots lie in mobile, they produce digital adverts and creative strategies for all digital platforms, including digital Out-Of-Home screens. 

In true start-up style, they regularly throw people in at the deep end, but with the right amount of backup and mentorship to help people succeed. 

They are a talented bunch of technical specialists, designers, creative technologists, relationship managers, and strategists, crucially all under one roof!

Above all, they have produced some amazingly cool work for their clients who include tier one brands like: Canon, Oakley, Waitrose, Peugeot, Sainsbury’s, Grey Goose, Not-On-The-High-Street, Renault, John Lewis, Virgin Media, and many more besides.
