Every agency has its sound bite. A set of ever-so-carefully-crafted words to try and explain why they’re truly different and incredibly brilliant and totally unique and why you absolutely really must come in and meet them as soon as you possibly can or you’ll miss out on the chance of a lifetime.
And yes, we’ve got one too: Game Changing Creativity.
Creativity that can supercharge a business and transform it into an iconic brand that truly stands for something.
We believe that Game Changing Creativity can capture the imagination of the nation – from cabbies down the pub to mums picking up the kids from school. Optimistic, celebratory work that is loved by real people from all walks of life.
Our game changing creativity is delivered by a partnership of senior practitioners from different disciplines - Advertising, Digital, Social, Content, Direct and Media - sharing the same goals and the same mission as our clients. It’s why we are consistently one of the most creatively awarded independent agencies in the world.
In 2001 Clemmow Hornby Inge set out to change the rules and create a new model agency founded on producing Big Ideas for Ambitious Brands and then bringing them to life across all media. It worked.
CHI&Partners are now the UK’s leading independent full service agency. We offer fully integrated marketing solutions with a broad, eclectic mix of practitioners who develop media-neutral ideas and execute them in the most appropriate channels. It’s one seamless team of people who are both specialists and generalists - expert in their respective communication disciplines, but fluent in them all. Our specialisms cover everything from advertising to digital to direct to design to point of sale and media buying & planning - all under one roof.
At the heart of our success is a unique process designed to find those Big Ideas. We created it, developed it over time and it now forms the core of the agency and our manifesto for the future. In a nutshell: As people stop watching traditional advertising and start interacting with media, brand communications that fail to get consumer participation are increasingly wasted. This means our clients need big ideas for their brands that are so powerful, so entertaining, or so useful that people won’t skip past – in fact they will pass them on to others. This means understanding new consumer behaviours. It means going beyond engagement – to the facilitation of brand participation. To achieve this all communications disciplines need to work together, not in silos. The consumer is our partner, not our target. Instead of ‘advertising in’, it needs to be ‘product out’ – getting consumer participation with the brand at all touchpoints, and almost certainly these days putting digital at the heart of the communication. This is how we work at CHI&Partners. We don’t just advertise our clients’ brands – we get them talked about and interacted with - unleashing the power of participation.
