“The great thing about Unity is they’ve got one foot in the board room and one foot on the street” Paul Holmes of the Holmes Report

We understand people and profit in equal measure: culture & commerce, audiences and assets, brands and business.

We’re an independent communications agency with a passion for delivering progressive work that rises to the challenges businesses face today.

Yes we know how to reach consumers, shareholders, businesses, governments and a range of other stakeholders. But increasingly, the right answer isn’t B2C or B2B. Today, all campaigns need to reach a much more important audience – human beings. 

Which is why our approach puts people first and at the heart of everything we do. We get people; we know what floats their boat, and how to turn them into fans.  We create campaigns that speak to people’s deepest needs and that drive passionate engagement. 

We believe people are the most powerful media channel on earth, and when properly engaged can deliver incredible things for brands and business. Which is why we’re proud to call ourselves a People Media business. They can shift product, swing opinion, create a movement, land a message and even turn around a crisis. 

They can make the difference, and so can we.
