We are all Imagination

We are totally committed to being a creative agency in everything we do.
We are a dynamic and evolving organisation that has changed as the needs of our clients have changed. Today our creative resources embrace the skills of architects, 3D and 2D designers, film makers, journalists, creative technologists, bloggers and social media experts, art directors and copy writers and creative strategists... all trying to imagine a more creative future for our clients and for ourselves.

We transform business through creativity

There is only so long that a business or a consumer brand can be slimmed down, re-engineered, streamlined, out-sourced or procurement reviewed. Sooner or later the removal of waste has to be replaced by the addition of value. That's where we come in. The ability to create ideas and opportunities that in turn create profits.

Experience is everything

 

Wherever you look in the consumer world, brands are increasingly valued by the experiences they offer, not by the messages they project. Sceptical consumers don’t want to listen to what brands say, they want to experience how they behave.

 

We have moved from the world of USP (unique selling proposition) to UExP (unique experience proposition). At Imagination we are experts in creating experiences for brands that create more memories than any message.

 

Independent for over 40 years

 

Inspired by our founder, we are an independent organisation in every sense. Commercially we serve no group objectives nor sister companies, nor shared corporate overhead.

 

We answer to our clients and to each other

 

This means that we can offer a truly independent view of the challenges and opportunities that face our clients. We believe the longevity of our relationships with clients demonstrates how valuable that is.
