The management of Fabula — founder and creative partner Luke Williamson, managing partner Jennifer Black and strategic partner Britt Iversen — have written to clients and contacts explaining the decision to close the agency, which was founded in the summer of 2012.
They explained that they have closed the business with no debt and having completed their final project, and are "off the barge and onto greener pastures".
According to Fabula's last annual accounts, for the year ended 31 March 2016, the company made a pre-tax profit of £354,000, compared with £342,000 in 2015.
Fabula was founded by Yan Elliott and Luke Williamson, the former creative directors at WCRS, along with Sam Brookes, the former managing director at Wieden & Kennedy's Platform.
Creative highlights include a strategic piece for Made.com (below) that resulted in the 'Sale' campaign.
Other work of note was its creative for ITV (below).
The agency said that becoming five years’ old gave it pause to reflect. "The industry is changing, with more project based work in tougher contexts with shorter deadlines, and it's becoming harder for a small independent agency like us to make not just good but great work, and also make a good living."
"So we've made the decision to call time on Fabula and apply our skills on to new adventures."
