About Us

KBS is a global creative business partner committed to inventing and reinventing brands and businesses. Our specialisms include: advertising, strategy, digital, social, content, CRM, creative technology, public relations, media planning and buying. Our team of inventors and creative entrepreneurs help our clients reframe their challenges and think boldly about solutions through an invention lens.

We even have a venture capital arm called KBS Ventures that allows us to invest in early stage ad tech companies, and serves as our telescope into the future. KBS Ventures also gives our clients first mover advantage with the new and emerging platforms that are part of our portfolio of companies.

Philosophy & Competitive Advantages

We believe in the power of invention and the exponential ROI (return on invention) that results from creating true marketing firsts. Our team of inventors and creative entrepreneurs helps our clients reframe their challenges and think boldly about solutions through an invention lens.

KBS is a digitally forward-thinking agency. And we are built to invent and reinvent brands and businesses to deliver transformational growth. Achieving that requires not just great strategy and creative, but also the most modern marketing machinery in the business – and the integrated marketing machine that we have built (and continuously fine-tune) at KBS is our key strength.

That marketing machine incorporates: Our strategy-to-distribution content creation unit, Content Labs, which has earned countless plaudits over the last five years and has been selected as editorial AOR; Our creative technology arm, Spies & Assassins, which builds everything from websites and apps to e-Commerce platforms, retail technologies, product prototypes and technology-fueled experiences; Our social and influence-marketing business, Attention, which uses a combination of cutting edge technology and expertise to enable us to get our content in front of the most influential people, drive sharing and create conversation; Our media, PR, CRM and experiential units, all of which have won major clients in their own disciplines and multiple awards.

The combination of these future-forward marketing disciplines under one P&L and one roof (in each of our offices), enables us to create inventive work and go-to-market approaches that earn attention even when budgets are limited, and thus make a major difference for our clients’ businesses.
