Forty years is a long time for an independent agency to continue to meet client expectations in an ever-evolving marketing landscape. That we have done so successfully is testimony to the agility, energy and foresight of our founder Derek Whalley. We’ve stayed on top of our game through the years, weathering the transition from the pre-Internet days of magic markers and darkrooms to actively embracing the opportunities of the digital age. Welcoming new thinking and technology is in our DNA, but treasuring the old school values on which we have built our name – common marketing sense, reliability, a can-do attitude and experience – is still the foundation of our business.

We have always been big enough to rely on, yet small enough to be agile and responsive to new challenges. Our philosophy of collective partnership and the specialist skillsets we have brought aboard enables us to tackle a wide range of work. Described by new employees as ‘one big family’ the Whalley culture of self-motivation, project ownership, and caring ensures accountability and consistent energy that translates into delivery.

As we continually evolve our team, our structure and our offer to provide new and relevant services we still see the importance of the big picture, still believe that great ideas and good timing are everything, and more than ever know that the consumer is king.
