Sounds simple, doesn’t it?

But it’s the most important question any creative agency can ask. It doesn’t matter if you want an animation, a suite of brochures or a full rebrand – understanding the reason behind the work gives us the focus to get results.

And at Workbrands, we’re all about results.

That focus helps us find imaginative ways to make your point, visually – cutting through the noise, giving you more impact, and setting you apart in a way that makes a real, measurable difference.

Making things look nice is easy. But design that helps you achieve your objectives? That’s when your brand is really working.

Our approach

Listen

We begin by asking lots of questions so we get to know your business inside out – your objectives, your audience, your competitors and the challenges you face. Through interviews, questionnaires or workshops, we gather your responses. These are distilled and shape the all-important brief.

Plan

A goal without a plan is just a wish. From a strategic approach to proposition development and communications planning, we help you create a clear roadmap. This ensures no presumptions are made, all boxes are ticked and we're travelling in the same direction to achieve your business objectives.

Create

We don't do off-the-shelf creative. Once a plan is in place, we’ll explore styles that reflect your brand personality and effectively engage with your audience. We'll present you with a selection of concepts, invite your feedback and work closely with you to develop your chosen design to completion.

Launch

The culmination of our collaboration, each project is launched across a broad spectrum of media including online, print and video but it doesn't stop there. We'll provide you with the right tools that empower teams across your organisation to ensure continuity and consistency.

Measure

Creativity is great but it's got to pay its way. At the start of each project, we'll agree on a set of measurable objectives – these can be an increase in web traffic, data captured or leads generated, amongst others.
We pave the way for a fruitful, long–term relationship by demonstrating ROI.

I bridge the gap between our clients and designers – bringing everything together to deliver the best solution. I love seeing a project through from conception to completion - helping our creative team to deliver work that achieves fantastic results gives me huge satisfaction. The people and atmosphere at Workbrands make it a great place to work and it’s lovely to be around such unpretentious creative people.

After several years of working in publishing and events, I joined Workbrands as a Designer and have recently been trained up as an Account Manager. I love the variety of work that comes with this role and feel very lucky to be a part of such a fun team.

Kirsty Jenkins
Kirsty Jenkins Office Manager

I joined Workbrands in 2008, having previously worked at Natwest, Barclays and GE capital. I’m responsible for the day-to-day operations, looking after our accounts and general admin. I think it’s great to work in a creative environment and I like that no two days are ever the same.

I joined Workbrands in 2011 after moving to Bristol from Scotland. My role involves creating engaging design solutions for clients such as CableCom Networking and Open Door Media. I love being part of such a dedicated team where everyone gets stuck in together, no matter how big or small the job. The industry is ever evolving and it's this constant challenge that keeps me coming back for more.

Wei Kee
Wei Kee Account Director

My role is all about meeting and exceeding client expectations. I like to take the time to understand the big picture as this lays a strong foundation for a fruitful partnership. I'm also a strong advocate of a strategic, holistic approach which, I believe, achieves the best results. Tailoring our services to help clients address pain points and meet long term objectives is really rewarding.

Steve Goss
Steve Goss Director

As well as the day-to-day running of a busy agency, I manage all project development for our brand management solution, Flex - from establishing client requirements through to build and beta testing, culminating in the delivery of intelligent and considered campaigns. What I like about Workbrands? Everything! The people, the enthusiasm, the fun side, the serious side, the wealth of knowledge and talent and especially the curry nights!

Nick Farrar
Nick Farrar Director

There’s been a huge amount of change in the 20 years I’ve been in the creative industry. The biggest change is the ongoing impact of technology and how it fundamentally affects our lives and how we do business. As a creative agency, our challenge is to maximise the opportunities available to our clients - without ever compromising effective design, their brand or user experience. It’s this that makes working in our industry so rewarding.

Tom Ovens
Tom Ovens Art Director

My role is to tell a brand's story and turn great ideas into effective creative solutions. And that’s what I love doing. Every day I’m inspired by the different clients we work with and the challenges they present to us. At Workbrands, we work very well as a team and share the same vision. With a passion for original ideas and an eye for detail, I strive to create designs that positively affect a brand and engage its audience.

Simon Tandy
Simon Tandy Designer

Having worked at agencies in both Bristol and Bath, I found my place at Workbrands where I specialise in corporate identity design and web design for clients large and small. I’m fascinated by the speed at which technology progresses and influences our next steps. For me, design is about being able to knock the socks off our clients. It’s about creating forward thinking solutions that influence people’s decisions. That’s what drives me.

Bobby Peliza
Bobby Peliza Designer

Following a six year stint in TV post production in London, I came back to my hometown of Bristol and joined Workbrands in 2009. Workbrands is a nice, friendly bunch of people without any pretentiousness. I’m usually working on day-to-day design and artworking for our clients such as Copenhagen Business School, and help out with photography and print when required. I really like the variety that comes with the role.

Darren Thomas
Darren Thomas Designer

I managed to work my way into Workbrands through a six month internship, wearing them down until they offered me a job. During my time here, I’ve been able to specialise in design for digital output, unlocking ways of making brands more relevant and engaging on screen. I enjoy being part of Bristol’s vibrant design community and wearing shorts in the midst of summer rather than a suit and tie.

Rachael Britton
Rachael Britton Account Manager

With both agency and client-side experience, my role here is two-fold. Firstly, to ensure we’re seen in all the right places for the right reasons. And secondly, to use my experience of working on campaigns for the likes of Xerox, Nissan and Majestic wines for the benefit of our clients. When I’m not writing content or planning campaigns, you can usually find me behind the camera lens or cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

Kayleigh Lloyd
Kayleigh Lloyd Designer

After several years working for a large agency in London, creating work for the likes of Microsoft and Sony, I moved back to the South West looking for a fresh challenge. I feel like I really lucked out with Workbrands – I instantly felt like part of the family and get to work on a great range of projects with some exciting new clients.
