What’s the Creative Agency like for the Account Director?

This is a new breed of independent creative agency.  It understands that we are living in the “audience” age and that brands need to leave a cultural footprint.

The agency is constantly seeking to move the conversation forward whilst understanding the restless spirit of the consumer who will only talk about a brand on their terms.

This agency brings together diverse talents from the world of film, music, publishing, PR, branding, advertising and production to make the right audience moments and create a cultural connection with the brand.

The agency is a great success story!

There is a strong “family feel” and a friendly culture but it is driven and hungry too with a huge emphasis on creativity.

Entrepreneurs thrive here.  

A lot of talented account handlers have deserted the big name agencies to come here because they feel inspired by the fresh creative and like the entrepreneurial feel, lean-forwards approach and can-do attitude of the Senior Planners and impetuous Creatives in this flat structured environment.
