The sad fact about designers, copywriters and creatives is that we’re not always that good at doing for ourselves what we do so well for our clients.
We’re especially guilty of neglecting our own websites. We procrastinate about improving them - for months or even years - then rush and bang something out that’s full of industry...Read More
In our experience, nobody really wants to pick a niche for their business or brand.
In fact, it’s a topic that seems to get people in a monumental flap.
As an aside, ‘niche’ is also a really weird word to say over and over again, as Anna discovers in the video above! It’s pretty odd to type too…

Just in case your memory of Greek legend isn’t quite up to speed (hey, no worries, we can’t all be Virgil nerds), here’s a super-quick recap:
Having had no joy gaining entry to Troy by force,...Read More
Are you one of the many millions of viewers who’ve watched Simon Sinek’s TED talk on how great leaders inspire action?

Can people tell instantly what you do and how to hire you?
Do you have your services packaged up so that they’re easy to buy?
Are your contact details easily...Read More
One of our favourite projects of 2016 was the messaging and language for an unusual property development project in London.
This client had painstakingly bought individual pieces of riverside land, spanning 26 acres in East London.
Having done so, they could have quickly developed every inch and turned a fast, substantial, short...Read More
