There are many options when it comes to choosing a supplier to launch a startup, design a new logo or build a website. Whether you go for a design agency (small or large), an in-house team, a freelancer, a friend or do it yourself using tools like Canva or Squarespace, it’s a big decision that can impact budget, timelines and ultimately a successful outcome.

So it’s important to get it right.

Agencies can work well. They provide security, a team, a centrally located studio, in-house cross-sector expertise and a track-record of blue-chip clients. Historically, it has been a lucrative business model and is well suited to larger companies with bigger marketing budgets.

I’ve worked at some of the largest agencies in London on blue-chip accounts like Microsoft, Canon and HP. I still enjoy taking on an agency brief as they often attract the higher profile brands.

For me, it’s not about the type of supplier, it’s about the creative working on your brief. As a client, you want access to that person. You want to be able to meet for a coffee, pick up the phone and brainstorm. You want to be able to review on-screen and you want your budget going into the execution and not secondary costs unrelated to your brief.

I have chosen not to hire permanent staff. You are buying into me, a well run studio that leverages the latest technology to allow me to work smarter and more efficiently than any agency I know.

My expertise is well defined and when a brief requires additional skill-sets, I have a network of highly experienced, senior consultants who can join the team to deliver work of the very highest standard.

It’s a win win. Outstanding work, lower costs and a more personal relationship.

Send me your brief to start the conversation.
