Who we are
We’re a small team with a big network. We don’t have an office, we find we’re more creative visiting different spaces, take a look at our viewfromtheoffice.
How we work
Our role as creative architects is to tailor our skills to each individual client and their needs. In order to help shape this process we’ve developed four distinct working stages that help us work efficiently.
- Preparation: We gather raw data and ask questions to gain an understanding of who you are and what you’re seeking to achieve. We also do our research to consider all internal and external influences that will have an impact on how you move forward.
- Ideas: We pool knowledge and experience from different fields and case studies in order to look at what’s possible, available and particular areas of innovation. We either work with you or present you with a creative range of ideas, complete with a set of notes to take away.
- Blueprints: Depending on the nature of the work we map out plans that will enable development such as concept papers, project overviews, development stages, design briefs or storyboards.
- Production: We provide you with a comprehensive framework to aid development internally or help you source creatives who are brilliant and itching to work on something interesting.

We work on a half day or full day basis and any retainer arrangement can be discussed in advance. We also charge an additional 15% for project management due to the consistent availability necessary.
Our aim is to do ourselves out of a job as quickly as possible. We never leave you in the lurch but we prefer not to overstay our welcome. We ensure that communication is quick and direct but most importantly that everyone involved is on the same page.
What kind of ideas do you build?
All kinds. Online, offline, campaigns, strategy, products, resources, events, to be honest we love a challenge.
What feeds your imagination?
Everything. TV, good coffee, books, social media, magazines, art, silence, conferences, the weather, people, hustle&bustle, travel, space, music, religion, conversation… unrelatedsources.
Are you a design/marketing agency?
Yes and no. We deal with the blueprints of design and marketing but the brickwork is what we leave to the beautiful bunch of freelancers we know and love.
Why creative architecture?
Integration. The boundaries of the creative economy are becoming increasingly blurred, opening up new opportunities for building ideas that span many more disciplines. We’re interested in embracing that integration and facilitating the process of idea generation.
Who owns the intellectual property of the ideas?
The short answer is you do. The long answer is IP for ideas is a legal minefield, so we operate a credit where credit is due policy; no unnecessary elevation but no trampling allowed either.
