We specialise in using the science of emotion to help brands find their edge and create long term growth.

Our Services:

Brand Strategy

Our bespoke neuro-mapping methodology gives us a unique insight into what emotionally motivates your consumer. We then use these insights to build brand platforms, distinctive visual identities and comms strategies that disrupt categories and grow market share.

Creative Advertising

We use our strategic edge to create high impact, emotive campaigns that build lasting impressions on audiences across TV, Cinema, OOH, Press, Digital, Radio, VOD and POP. We specialise in integrated campaigns, delivering a 360 approach for global brands, with brand toolkits and guidelines developed to ensure consistency across local markets and at every consumer brand touchpoint.

Social Media

Strategically led and creatively driven, our social media team engages consumers and motivates communities through Channel Strategy, Influencer Strategy, Content Creation, Community Management and Reporting.

Digital Production

Our digital studio works directly with our Creative and Social teams to produce high quality, engaging content and experiences through digital design and front-end development, video production and motion design.

Our values

We have a set of values we like to live by. You could call them guidelines, codes, principles or teachings but we like to call them BOB - The Book Of Bears.

  • #BOB 1 : Make It Fun

    Undertakers - they have to be pretty serious. Luckily, we generally don't. For a creative atmosphere to thrive you need to laugh, play, experiment and sometimes even be a little bit silly. So have fun. We insist on it

  • #BOB 2 : Difficult is Worth Doing

    If it's easy you're looking for, you've come to the wrong place. To get to the kind of conclusions we're after you have to sweat a little, scare yourself a bit, go the extra round and face your demons. We don't expect 'right first time' or a 'hole in one' but we do expect you to fight for what you believe in, embrace your failures and never give up. Or in other words: grab the bear by its balls and keep going until you want its babies.

  • #BOB 3 : Do Unorthodox

    If you always stick to the script and do things the same way you'll always get the same results. Break away from the norm, step out of your comfort zone, go bananas and try something new. Imagine if Mick Jagger hasn't pursed his lips and invented his silly strut, if Steve Jobs had been satisfied with his Atari video game or Logie Baird had been satisfied with his radio - where would we be today?

  • #BOB 4 : Run With The Pack

    We love people. Our people are our best assets (uuurgh, pass the sick bucket!). But it's true, without them we are nothing. They have opinions, they have skills, they have a point of view and some of them have crazy hairdos. But the big thing we have in common is our passion, our commitment and the will to stand shoulder to shoulder in doing what's right for the cause.

  • #BOB 5 : Be Furiously Curious

    Southpaws are hungry. We're always striving to learn, to question everything, to unearth new insights, to inspire peers and clients with new ideas and new technologies, to go to weird and wonderful places and gain new experiences. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but we're big grizzly animals and we won't go down without a fight. Bring it on!

  • #BOB 6 : Give A Shit

    People are relying on you. They trust you. They believe in what you do. Clients and agency alike. You are in a position to influence major brand, millions of people and create world famous work (yes you!). All we ask you to do is give a shit and give what you are doing the love and care it deserves.
