• The ´╗┐Essence of Media

    It's as much innovation as calculation.

    Media isn't bean counting. Or rather, it isn't just bean counting. In Essence, media is one of the most creative parts of the business. It has to be. We use media to solve our clients' marketing challenges. That takes a lot of innovative thinking. We do it by taking the brightest talent. We equip them with the best tools. We imbue them with a spirit of entrepreneurship and responsibility. Then we point them in the direction of the problem. Our clients love the results.

  • The Essence of Creative

    It's brilliant, loose cannon, individualistic thinking in formation.

    Ideas aren't so much created as identified. They're already in there. In something the client tells you. In a line in a technical brochure. Or some innocuous piece of data. It's the creative team's job to see the potential. To seize the opportunity. That way we can make it come alive. Make it punch above its weight. Become bigger than it is.

  • The ´╗┐Essence of Design & Build

    What we don't know doesn't scare us. 

    Design and build isn't for the faint-hearted. It's a sheer rock face of a team. A dizzying place where thinking and doing collide. That's why you need innovators and pioneers ready to invent the impossible. Yet still willing to take a step back and offer an existing solution when required.

  • The Essence of Social

    We love it so much we bought the company.

    We’ve always been passionate about social media. But passion alone is never enough. So following the Essence maxim that if you’re not utterly brilliant at something find someone who is, we went out and acquired Punktilio. They’re the very best in a fast-moving business. Which means that now, along with our other specialisms, we can truly declare ourselves experts in social.

    Ann-Marie Thompson

    "The team are hugely attentive and passionate about the projects we work on. In an environment as busy and competitive as ours, not only is it reassuring to know that the job is in good hands, but that the job is getting done as thoroughly and effectively as it possibly can be. They really are true masters of their craft."
