The Agency

Established over a pint in 1986.
In Smithfield since before it was cool.

Where we’re coming from

Two copywriters, one art director and a single phone line, above a sweet shop in Leeson Street in 1986. That was us. A few days later, we won that year’s Grand Prix in outdoor advertising. Today we live in a converted warehouse in the city’s old markets district, and there is rather more of everything, including people. Smart, driven people. We have more than our fair share of them, and we like to think that is one reason why clients tend to stay, including some since day one.

What we don’t do

We don’t do PR. Otherwise we are full service in the fullest possible sense of that definition. We create ideas for every medium, and none (the harp of Brian Boru on the Ryanair tailplane, for instance). We plan media. We buy media, with a very hard nose. We produce for all media. We don’t much care whether it’s online, offline, above or below the line, or in your face. We do very much care that it all starts with an idea. A good idea. That’s what made us the 2015 Agency of The Year.

Who we are

Art Directors. Copywriters. Strategists. UX, Interaction and Motion Designers. Planners, buyers, thinkers of every useful sort, very savvy administrators and several data sorcerors. Together with our clients, we are happy to be part of the resurgence of Smithfield, today home to a thriving and eclectic mix of art and commerce. We are not sure how many more coffee shops are required.
