Content

Getting people’s attention is one thing: keeping it is a skill.

With years of award-winning expertise in one place, we build long-lasting partnerships with clients. Our talented team of in-house creative writers, designers, strategists, film makers, and developers know what great looks like. We work with you, creating together to deliver meaningful communications that matter.

We make words work, capturing attention and telling powerful stories. From editorial content for intranets and magazines to business writing for presentations and campaigns, we make your important interesting. We can sharpen what you already have or copywrite from scratch, cutting through jargon and creating clear calls to action to give your people context

Our design team craft imaginative magazines, campaigns, emailers, apps, microsites, reports and business presentations for print and digital media. Their creative ideas stand out and raise awareness, reaching audiences wherever they are.

Our video and film create moving image that changes perceptions, explains big ideas and engages inside and outside your organisation. We’re specialists in helping people understand wider issues such as mental health, diversity, health & safety, CSR and big change projects. Our work leaves a big impression whether it’s for a stand-alone film, clever animation, taking your user-generated content, or as part of an integrated campaign.

Insight

Insight

One of the biggest mistakes we see organisations make is giving their people what they think they want, rather than what they actually need.

We add useful external perspective, using data and the science of communication to help you find the insights and opportunities that build better employee experience and engagement.

Our measurement and research work covers regular pulse surveys, employee engagement and comms surveys, in-depth audits, audience profiling and mapping and we use this analysis to come up with practical strategies.

We’re your ‘critical friend’ with clear thinking, plain-talking ideas for content, channels and formats that make a difference to business challenges.

Technology

Technology

How we use technology in our personal lives influences how we want to use technology at work.

The digital workplace brings new opportunities – and questions. How can we make the most of our Microsoft Office 365 investment or digital strategy? What will make our intranet stand out? What’s the best collaborative or social channel?

Rushing into implementing something new wastes time and money. What makes our in-house team valuable to you is that we speak geek, but get communications.

We make what seems complex, simple.

We define the digital communications you need and deliver the design and technical development tomake it work in the workplace.

Clients say they value our independent stance: we aren’t wedded to any one platform or technology, but recommend the best technical, collaborative and communication solutions.
