United by the
challenges and ambitions
of our clients

A brief history of Bretom

Bretom was founded in 2015 on the belief there’s a better way for creative agencies and their clients to work together.

Where the client’s mission and ambition take centre stage. Where client and creatives are partners not wary opponents and collaboration is the norm not the exception. Where commercials are completely fair and transparent. Where people are grounded but brilliant, driven by exceptional outputs rather than personal ego. Above all, where a spirit of intelligent playfulness prevails.

For over five years, that’s been more than a belief. It’s been our daily reality.

The Bretom Difference

Creativity matters, craft matters, output matters. But, at Bretom, we believe nothing matters more than our CLIENTS. Too often, once the pitch honeymoon is over, bureaucracy and inefficiencies slowly take over – leading to indifference. How do we avoid that?

1. We listen
Brilliant campaigns happen when your goals are truly heard and understood, including a deep understanding of your company’s wider agenda and market context. We make no assumptions. We gather all the information needed to tell your story creatively and compellingly to the people who matter.

2. We care
The success of every single client project matters to us; we banish complacency. The quality of our work can be nothing less than outstanding – ultimately, it’s our reputation on the line as much as yours. We care about keeping our relationship strong, efficient, fun, and focussed on your needs.

3. We drive change

‘Intelligent comms’ is not just about getting website hits or social likes. It’s about attracting the right people and clients to a business, ensuring they remain engaged, and maximising their life-cycle with you. The outcome of agency work should be tangible and measurable, with accountability for change shared between agency and brand.

4. We’re transparent
This is a big one. Transparency equals trust, which leads to longer and more fruitful relationships. We believe in commercial transparency (full clarity on investment and expectations upfront) and operational transparency (client-delivery communities formed by the best people for the job, not just the best available people). Our longer-term focus gives us more time to make a real difference.

5. We’re lean
To deliver impactful, creative, memorable work, you need an experienced, passionate, committed team of professionals dedicated to the growth of your business. You don’t need a big office with scores of people shuffling paper and waiting for phones to ring.

6. We have fun
Life’s too short to be bored. It’s so important to bring excitement, innovation, playfulness, and laughter into the teams’ relationship with you. The output of our projects is designed to make you smile with pride, and we ensure the journey you go on to get there is always as positive.

7. We’re a school for creativity
Giving everyone freedom to work in a way that suits them individually leads to a stronger, more effective collective. We nurture a culture of creativity, learning and development to attract the brightest talent, breaking down traditional silos and encouraging cross-pollination of skills.

We value

A journey of discovery, of being relentlessly interested in the art of possible, inspiring our clients and sparking our collective creative spirit to succeed.

Impeccable, meaningful design born out of exploration and inclusivity, and which provokes thought, engagement and deep affinity with your brand.

An unfaltering dedication to partnering with the brightest minds and nurturing collaborative client-centric processes to achieve our shared goals.

An ambition to make a difference and a determination to pursue excellence by being open-minded and growth-focused in our approach to everything we do.

People, meaning and connection are everything to us; brands are nothing without them. We connect your brand to the people who matter, in a way that matters.
