Our values

Like you, we’re a values-led organisation.

Of course we strive to embody integrity, honesty, dedication and diligence. But we also hold dear three principles that really express who — and how — we are.

They are:
Collectivism, Curiosity and Courage.

We commit to these in the way we work with each other, our clients and collaborators.


 

COLLECTIVISM

We collaborate and co-create

We believe bringing diverse minds and skills together can lead to the best work. As the Cubists discovered, many perspectives can make for a more meaningful, illuminating picture.

We also find that when people are involved at the right times in a project, they’re much more committed to the objectives of the work. Makes sense, right?

We’re partners not service-providers

The strength of our relationships is reflected in the strength of our work. Not least because good relationships unlock the door to an open, trusting and collaborative process.

Knowing you have the ‘right fit’ comes from learning about who we are and how we work, not back-of-a-napkin ideas or sales spiel. We don’t believe the pitching culture fosters the most genuine intentions or most meaningful results.


 

CURIOSITY

We investigate

We ask a lot of questions not just because we’re inquisitive, but because we believe the best creative work emerges from insight and evidence.

Being explorative, analytical and research-focused in our approach helps us to find what matters — and make it matter more.

We go in deep

People are more interested in ‘why’ something exists than what it actually does. As human beings we identify on an emotional level with organisations, and this is how we interpret and understand their purpose.

So, to help you forge the strongest possible connection with your audiences, we need to get to the heart of what matters about your ‘why’.

We sense

We instinctively listen, relate and reflect throughout the working relationship, helping you to define the real brief and the most useful parameters for the project.

The result is more. More than an identity. More than a website. More than a campaign. It could even mean a transformation in how you communicate or a positive shift in your working culture.


 

COURAGE

We challenge

To break boundaries, first we must break out of our comfort zones. Question what might often go unquestioned. Disrupt the same old direction.

Sometimes we need to (gently) unsettle a few rocks to release the unresolved and let the good stuff emerge. Truths and insights on which
great brands, campaigns and communications are founded.

We put our hearts into it

A project isn’t just another job to us. We invest a lot of care, attention and ourselves into every one.

Seeing the positive ripples of our work, and learning how they could reach further, is what drives us to do better.
