About Us

We are an agency committed to keeping our clients relevant and in turn, creating campaigns that are led by cultural insights and a deep understanding of audiences.

Epic campaign creation is what we do, continually delivering ideas that are impactful, drive commercial returns and build brand fans. We are always on the hunt for the cool and the unventured, hosting our own workshops and attending events that are nothing to do with the industry but everything to do with the people we want to engage with.

Our work spans across; experiential marketing, brand experiences, social content, film, brand partnerships, event marketing, sponsorship, digital, design, activation and PR.

Our clients are some of the best in food and drink, lifestyle, music and entertainment.

Some of our recent work includes; partnering a Grammy-award winning producer with a global burger brand, wrapping a barge and sailing down Camden Passage to launch a limited-edition Absolut vodka bottle, rebranding a dating app and travelling to Belgium to create a video series for a Belgium beer brand.

The Role

We’ve been creating epic sh*t since 2013 and we’ve learnt a lot. One of our biggest learnings is that to deliver what we create; we need excellence at the heart of our delivery team. Our campaigns are steeped in culture and knowledge, which usually means multiple moving parts.

The past 5 years have been a ride and we’re now looking to take the next steps of growth as we work with our clients in both the UK and US. High energy, entrepreneurial spirit, a winning mindset and an unwavering commitment to delivering excellence is what drives us.

In 2018 we went hard and we’re looking to go harder in 2019. We delivered cool and relevant campaigns through, creativity, entrepreneurialism and our amazing network of partners.

The campaigns we create often involve knowledge of current trends and foreseeing what’s next. This person will need to have a passion for studying what is making waves through specific audiences and cultures.

Being aware of which brands are hot right now, why they are, and which ones have lost their way. this can be from H&M mishaps to Adidas x Beyoncé collabs.
