About Us

We’re an award-winning, integrated brand communications agency. Privately owned, proudly independent.

We work with clients we believe in, to help them grow and connect with their audiences. They range from festivals to kitchenware, natural dog food to pet care, health and wellbeing to charities, and many more. Being an independent agency means we can pick and choose the brands we want to work with. 

Being based in the South West, we have space to think and room to grow. Our office is based in Bath, and we have strong connections to Bristol, plus our clients are based everywhere. We are often on the train to London, flying up north, in the car heading to Wales, or down South taking in the Cornish air. 

We work in an open plan and vibrant office, where knowledge is shared and successes celebrated. We are in the new workshops in Beehive Yard, just off Walcot Street, which is full of creative independent shops. So we feel the space is perfect for us. 

We are undergoing a bit of a refurb this year, and our website is getting a refresh too, to reflect the agency we are today. 

We’ve won a few awards too, and every creative brief we write, we ensure the outputs are award-winning, so we can enter more!
