About us

We are an independent creative agency. We do strategy, storytelling and design, or in other words insight driven, good ideas that look great and people like.

We are multi-disciplined in a world of disorder and chaos, engineering brands to connect with their audience online, in print, on pack, on film, on shelf and on walls. We start every project with a blank canvas, but we never make it up as we go along.

We have the big thoughts that our clients need and faces only our mothers could love. We think first, act later.

What we do

Based in Bristol, living local but thinking global, we are a ‘brand first’ studio, creating award winning identities, integrated campaigns, packaging, websites, apps and films for household names and challenger brands.

We practice an open, collaborative culture with each other, our clients and the wider creative community. Together we produce work that graces retail fixtures, and takes pride of place in peoples homes; takes you on adventures and joins you for the journey.

Smile, we’ll make you famous.

Our People

We’re lucky, everyone who works at Halo loves ideas; having them, crafting & developing them, making them work. We’ve created an environment of collaboration & freedom of expression because big ideas can only happen where there’s space to grow.

There’s a lot of beards & tattoos but don’t worry, we’re a respectable bunch, as capable in the boardroom as we are in the studio, bringing insightful planning & strategy to adventurous, award winning design.
