We have significant experience of working in academia and the charity and non-profit sector. Our clients include Breathing Space Lancashire, CancerCare, Creative Lancashire, Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP), Lancaster City Council, Lancashire County Council, Lancaster University Management School, n-compass North West, NeuroDropIn, Nuffield Family Justice Observatory, Restorative Solutions, and SEPAD.

Our founder and creative director, Charlie Haywood, is on the board of trustees at Neuro DropIn and our account director, Joanna Young, is chair of trustees at Morecambe Bay Food Bank.

As an integrated agency, our team of specialists is able to offer a broad range of related services all under one roof – including brand design, website design, digital marketing, PR, and social media management.

At the start of every new project we ensure we understand our client’s objectives and put in place effective project management, deliver meaningful reporting, and share actionable insights.

We are the Red Rose Awards Creative Business of the Year 2019.

How We Work

We start with your objectives and develop your Value Proposition. We work to understand your strengths, and any weaknesses; opportunities in your marketplace, and threats from your competitors. This helps ensure you achieve an outstanding ROI.
