We are five.

Five years of ups, downs, trials, challenges and tribulations. Throughout everything, we’ve stuck to our principles and kept faith in the power of the collective. Here’s to the next five.

 

 

Wow, we are five. School age. How did that happen so quickly? From three people with a dream in a dingy basement studio, we’ve grown to a collective of 20+ fearless creatives forming one of the fastest growing agencies in the South.

Throughout the last five years, our journey has been all about the power of the collective, the vision of bringing together a host of different skill sets under one roof has given us a robustness and a flexibility to adapt to an ever-changing environment, partially negating the impact of Covid-19 with the ability to react quickly to shifting creative circumstances.

Over the past seven months or so, we’ve welcomed two babies into the world with another currently rendering, we’ve celebrated two weddings and won several new pitches. In order to manage our expanding roster of clients and capabilities, we’ve added five new people to our collective. Katie, Jenny, Rich have all arrived since the beginning of lockdown, strengthening our artworking, production, and visual effects capacities.

Our new-look creative team will be overseen by Alice, an experienced Studio Manager who was so desperate to join us she left sunny Sydney behind and flew halfway across the world. In other great news for our current and future clients, we’ve also added vast commercial experience and strategic might with the arrival of Stuart Robertson from Hampshire Cricket.

This time last year we were celebrating reaching our four year milestone with a trip to Barcelona, followed by an adventure weekend in Dorset. This year we haven’t celebrated with quite the same sense of elan, but a few socially distanced beers and pizzas in the studio felt like the next best thing, and about as close to normal as it’s possible to get in these crazy times.

Like many creative businesses, we’re not out of the woods yet, but hopefully we’ve weathered the worst of the storm. These latest developments feel like a statement of intent, a new beginning in the age of the new normal. Because however the commercial and creative landscape looks in the future, we want to give ourselves and our clients the best possible skills to help shape it.
