Press release   •   Mar 14, 2012 12:18 GMT

This month The Beautiful Meme is featured in The Drum magazine as one of the UK's top agencies to have emerged over the past couple of years. In the United Kingdom, The Drum is the industry's leading magazine. They cover media and marketing news from all over the UK with stories, job search resources, events listings and features.

This recognition contributes to a number of achievements we’ve seen since the beginning of the year. In February, it was announced that we were shortlisted for the Transform awards in the category Tone of Voice. This was for our work with The Student Housing Company. The winners of this award will be announced on March 21st. Last month we were invited to design a charity poster for Leeds Print Festival alongside Music, Generation Press and Anthony Burrill.

Some of our most recent work includes the brand creation for One&Other, a new York media brand and social enterprise with national aspirations. One&Other is cool, contemporary and cultured. We continue to work with them to produce ongoing marketing campaigns. One&Other has just been shortlisted for the 2012 Newspaper Awards in the Digital Innovation of the Year category. We also work with Netherlands-based AkzoNobel, the world's largest coatings company to produce international print and digital advertising for its aerospace division.

We’re the agency for when brands are ready to change - either themselves or
the world.

If you want more of the marketing you’re currently doing, safe ideas or the re-creation of what's in your head then we’re definitely not the right agency for you.

If you want to be surprised, given ideas that will challenge your marketplace and for your brand to tell new stories then we’re perfect.

As a boutique creative agency we’re the place between art and business.

We understand and draw from both worlds; a practical awareness of return on investment, sales and profitability, crossed with left-field artistic approaches, bold thinking and an immersion in the further reaches of our culture.

When brands have new products, direction or vision, our injection of pure creativity takes them to places they haven’t even considered. Our advertising ideas become change agents, both internally and externally, as well as powerful sales tools.

We are called 'The Beautiful Meme'™ because it describes our creative philosophy. A meme is a unit of cultural information - a catchphrase, a concept, a tune or a fashion - that passes through society, replicating and adapting much like genes through a species. Memes can influence behaviour and change cultures.

Our name is a challenge to ourselves.

In every piece of creative we produce we look for the ‘beautiful meme’. A visually stunning idea that will live and spread beyond the marketing from which it springs.
