       We are a brand agency who powers extraordinary ideas through a rare blend of strategic and creative thinking. These ideas not only deliver immediate impact but also provide the foundation for long-term business growth.  Founded by Clare Styles and Laura Tan, our hybrid team has been carefully composed to ensure we cover the full spectrum of skills required to both imagine and implement a brand of note. Our specialism is in building brands that will appeal to the modern premium and luxury customer.  We think like grown-ups but we behave as flexibly as a start-up—our goal is to deliver business transformation but as quickly and simply as possible. We prefer to work collaboratively and when it suits, we function more like an in-house marketing team than an agency supplier.                           RARE AND PROVEN  OUR TEAM     

  

  	
       
      
         
          
             
                  
             
          

          

         
      
       
    

  


         Formerly a successful partnership as Executive Creative Director and Head of Strategy at Brand Union, Clare and Laura decided to set up on their own to pursue a shared passion for building notable brands. Together, they have created award-winning work for the likes of Jaguar, Land Rover, Shangri-La hotels and Pernod Ricard.  We build bespoke, specialist teams for each project and where relevant, we collaborate with our expert partners on additional marketing requirements such as digital, PR and advertising, acting as brand guardians throughout. We also have a wide network of influencers—particularly women from the luxury and fashion sectors—which we tap into for insights and collaborations.
