Description

About us

We are an entrepreneurial integrated communications agency that has gone from start-up to multi-national in just 22 years.

We have a network of 24 offices, 550 employees and revenue of $64m. Not bad for an agency that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

We challenge ourselves to stay one step ahead of the competition by delivering innovative solutions for clients which can be activated at pace and scale.
