Conventional wisdom used to say that running off a cliff would result in life threatening injuries. However, in Cordoba, Spain, Abbas Ibn Firnas (810 – 887) came to the conclusion that conventional wisdom was wrong and jumped off a cliff. This is considered the first attempt at heavier-than-air flight in aviation history and gave inspiration to many others to follow suit. Change begins with an idea.

 
 

ABOUT US

With over 30 years' experience between us, our careers have not only taken us to some of London’s best agencies, but also overseas to work in the APAC and EMEA markets.

 

We’ve consistently delivered creative solutions that have exceeded client expectations, creating award-winning campaigns, overseeing copy, art direction and design, and nurturing junior creative talent along the way. But most of all, we’re into developing big ideas that cut through and work across all media channels.

 

Over the years we've led and won pitches, helping agencies gain over £500m worth of new business, for clients both big and small. NOKIA, BIG YELLOW and Legal & General to name just a few.

We've also been fortunate to consistently create work that has been recognised in leading industry awards:

We're currently free to talk about both permanent and freelance opportunities.

Below are some references from people who we've worked with...

"I've known Pete and Chris for many years and recently suggested they team up. I like that they are able to solve business problems with a strategic and creative approach, and I knew they would get along. Pete was working into me on a freelance basis as an ACD at VCCP and I asked Chris to come in and work alongside him on a couple of briefs. They didn't disappoint. They are both big idea guys. Very much idea first and completely media neutral. Once they've got a cracking idea they'll craft their work and make sure it runs to the standard that it should. (This is sadly often a lost art these days.) Snap them up - before I do."

Greg Milbourne, Creative Director – VCCP

"I had the pleasure of working with Pete at Inferno. He's full of ideas, a very talented guy and extremely hard-working. If you'd like a more detailed reference, please ask Pete for my email address. Or just get him in. He's good."

Simon Welsh, Chief Creative Officer – J. Walter Thompson, Hong Kong

"I worked with Chris for ten years in both London and Melbourne. Quite simply, Chris gets it. He knows what makes a good ad and how to create one. He understands the importance of the idea, (increasingly rare) the value of strategy (rarer) and as an art director he is one of the most accomplished I've worked with. To that end, Chris is arguably at his best and his happiest crafting print, but I know from personal experience he has a real understanding of digital and a desire to really flex his muscles within the channel. One thing's for certain with Chris, he's passionate about advertising and I have no hesitation in recommending him."

Jim Ritchie, Creative Director – Bastion Collective

"I engaged Peter to support TheJobPost in the early stages of our launch - he immediately grasped a great understanding of what we want to achieve in revolutionising the recruitment market. As such, the quality of work and creativity was superb and good value for money as our registrations increased four fold."

John Paul Caffery, Founder – TheJobPost; Co-Founder – Reactoo

"Chris is creative, honest and hard working – a real pleasure to work with. He has a pleasant demeanour, a passion for what he does and a positive can-do attitude. He quickly established himself as my right hand man."

Douglas Jack, Creative Director – Geometry Global Dubai

"I met Pete Higgins at Souk a few years ago and was immediately impressed. His clarity of thought, drive and understanding of marketing problems were those of a much older and experienced creative. Since then he's got even better (bastard). So when he came to me with a crazy idea to set up an agency that was going to survive by the quality of its creative output it took me about three seconds to say yes. In fact, I think his arm is still aching from where I tried to rip it off."

Sean Toal, Creative Director – SOUK; Creative Partner – The Creative Rebellion

"Chris is a dedicated, hard working, and highly professional creative. He has worked on some of the most demanding accounts and always pushed the creative ideas time and time again. He has contributed to the awards success of both OgilvyAction and Geometry Global with the outstanding creative concept “The Rescue Continues” for the client Sawa Mninjah. Chris has an easy going personality combined with a good sense of humour and I’ve enjoyed working with him in a professional and personal capacity."

Robin Smith, Executive Creative Director – Geometry Budapest
