Simon DT on writing

“Man has always had a fundamental need to tell and listen to stories, it’s one of ways we learn, remember and connect. Telling stories is part of being human. And brands thrive on the stories they tell”

Who We Are

Philosophy

People who come up with the best thinking have what we call Clout and Creativity. So, we’ve surrounded ourselves with a family of wonderfully creative and hugely experienced people

People

We have ex-creative directors who now write, ex-strategists who design interiors, ex agency owners who write songs, and of course, ex-career marketeers who are now lovely mums, hence our name.
