Expertise

Our Expertise

As a group of people, we're a little bit different. We like to think a little bit differently too. And we apply that thinking to everything we do. A good idea helps create something memorable, something meaningful, something magical. And good ideas are what we're all about.

Our approach…

A creative force in your corner. That's how we like to think of ourselves. We know that time is tight and sometimes budgets are too. So, we'll do our best to adapt, accomodate and assist you on your journey. Yes, challenges can be complex. But with fresh eyes and a warm smile we'll come out fighting together and smash it out the ring.

It all starts with that great idea. And it all ends when we achieve your ultimate objectives.

We're told time and again - our clients choose us because we get it. And that's something we're rather proud of.

Internal comms

Effective internal communication needs to land with impact and incite action. We don't stick to rigid guidelines and comply with the usual and the expected. We break away from normal, apply creative licence and push limits. We combine these ideas with our skill and experience to create strategic and tactical output that works for you and your organisation. Intelligent, impactful and bloody exciting.

Brand and corporate communications

From the strategy and the plan to the messaging and creative execution across channels, we'll have the attention of your target audience from the very second it lands, loud and clear. They'll be left in no doubt about what you're asking of them, and they'll be desperate to tell the world all about it too.

Campaigns

When creating cracking campaigns, we rise above the noise and deliver knock-out results without the hot air. We make the effort to apply creativity, fun and a bit of a buzz, every time. Our clients come in all shapes and sizes, achieving enviable and lasting outcomes for them is essential wherever the campaign is landing, internally, externally or even somewhere in between.

Digital

From design and build of wickedly wonderful websites to awesome animations and enthralling interactive experiences, we've got the digital avenues covered. We see every challenge as an opportunity to arouse interest and action. Because we're confident that's what you need.

Which?

“The guys at Alive understand the complexities of our business which means we don’t need to explain the detail of every project or design piece – they’re already on it, which keeps things moving and delivers the results we need.”

Emily Stoten — Head of Marketing, Selecta

“I feel like they own and care for the project as much as we do! I would not use anyone else for my creative work and think Alive is ahead of the game.”

Jo Hobbs — Communications Manager

“Thanks for all your help. We are delighted with the campaign, both in terms of the creativity and messaging but also the thought taken over the rollout of the materials. All looks absolutely fabulous!”

Sarah Crowdy — Campaign and Media Officer Communications, South East Water

“We went to ‘Alive’ for ideas on how to run a specific employee program in Europe. Alan and his team were brilliant in coming up with fresh, creative and practical approaches. The team took charge and executed brilliantly. We are pleased with the progress made so far and hope to have the same level of partnership and commitment going forward.”

Sobha — Tata Consultancy Services

“So glad that we chose Alive to create our new website. As well as taking the time to get the visual side of our requirement right, they worked with us to understand us, our business and our clients and reflect this across the site. We loved their flexible approach, which, coupled with the right level of challenge has replaced our old, clunky site with one we can be proud of. ”

Victoria Ford — Perago

“We got 'Alive' involved to help us shift mindsets across our organisation and they delivered! Using simple, clear and creative ideas the team have delivered us a campaign which has seen a dramatic increase in idea sharing and development. They’ve also played a significant role in creating a culture of shared success. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with again, in fact, we already are!”

Gavin Buckle — B&Q
