Making a difference is neither ordinary nor easy.

Some might say our team is a bit like a family. Like most families, everyone has his or her own strengths, skills and interests, but our DNA and destinies are entwined and integrated. Our Ethics; Human, Fearless, Dynamic, and Switched on, are shared and lived by us all.

A shared culture and agency vision creates a great place to work and it’s something we’re constantly looking to improve and develop.

Shared Ethics

Human

We use our hearts as well as our heads.

We bring our true selves to work - and that means looking after each other. We understand that everyone has good days and bad days. We believe that human marketing is great marketing - because it speaks to people on an emotional level. Emotions are powerful so we value and respect them. 

Fearless

We say what we really think and we think boldly.

We're always trying to shake things up in a positive way. We know that mediocrity and blandness never inspired anyone. We're brave about suggesting something new and we listen respectfully when someone else does. We don't mind if someone challenges our opinion because we're not afraid to be proven wrong. 

Dynamic

Actions speak louder than words.

Our behavior sends a message that's much more powerful than the things we say. We take responsibility for our actions and we fulfill our commitments. We believe in making things better, so we work on ourselves, our team and our business. 

Everything- and everyone - is a work in progress.

 

 

Switched on

We're aware of the world around us.

We like to know what's going on. We're interested in people, society and the world around us. We think about the big stuff and we always try to make a positive impact. We never forget that business and marketing have the power and potential to make the world a better place.
