Give your business some personality

 

Every business has a story to tell, a narrative that enhances your brand experience, attracts new clients and provides new direction for growth and expansion. we have a unique formula for revealing, developing and creating that story to help you deliver a powerful message across all communication channels.

There has never been a more important moment to crystallise the personality of your business and develop a distinctive and dynamic relationship with customers, staff and partners. our wealth of experience across the media sector helps us to curate, maintain and develop your story, grow your audience and deliver powerful content that gets to the heart of your narrative.

Our goal is for organisations and businesses large or small across all sectors have access to custom multichannel storytelling of the highest level. our clients are all manner of businesses and we'll work on huge annual projects or half day edits. yes we are disruptive; and proud of it, because ultimately the great divide between public relations, media relations, marketing, publishing, communications, design and branding no longer exists. In its place there is us, a creative consultancy.

Content we've created

 
Seriously Big Rock

We still have nightmares about how mind boggling complicated it was to shoot one of the world's most expensive pieces of jewellery. The dust! The dust! THE DUST! And armed guards with shotguns. But it was fun and the shoot was unique.

Left Behind Children

A beautiful but tragic photo essay about children in China whose parents have to permanently leave home to work in the big smoke. The kids are left alone to fend for themselves with ageing relatives or siblings. Wonderful photos by Jasper James.

Eating ASEAN

Try and explain what ASEAN is by using the metaphor of cooking. Lovely shoot in Hong Kong and the perfect recipe for explaining an otherwise very technical do da.

Tough Talk

Mental health is tough to talk about at the best of times but in Asia the stigma is even worse.

It's good to talk.

Awesome photography by Matt.

Rock the bank

Banker by day

Rockstar at night.

Good life balance.

No chart without art

Pharrell gets personal with Monita about how to collaborate, the texture of composition and the interesting friction of juxtaposition (wow!)

Take a wonderful Wiltshire design house and use film to express the character, honesty and quality of their bespoke creations. 

The Gobi Challenge

Documentary coverage of the largest ever expedition across 100km of the Gobi desert. Difficult sub-zero conditions and a lot of different cameras for a small crew. Nightly battery charging missions to tiny villages and too much vodka to mention.

HSBC's visual identity

Working with agency MerchantCantos the challenge was to give HSBC a clear and enticing visual identity by creating an internal communications channel for its workforce; crucial in rebuilding its reputation and promoting staff retention.

CNNGo(es) local

Create a travel show that heads to unusual destinations and has friendly locals show CNN around with a soundtrack provided by local bands. James Partington was Executive Producer of the show generating millions in revenue.

Creating dreams

Get on your bike for inspiration and a different take on your average 'corporate' film. Tap into who people are before you tell the story of their business.

RMBe the change

Try explaining to HSBC why the RMB belongs in the SDR. Yeah a lot of acronyms... but we did it thanks to some help from the Hong Kong trams and harnessing the bank's inner expertise. 

Talking to the stars

Monita weaves some interview magic with some of the world's most enigmatic and exciting celebrities, business leaders and political powerhouses.
