What we do
At Nous we assess and understand; strategise and scope; design, direct, and deliver the services needed to communicate the definitive personality of brands. Large or small, start-up or long-established, our client base is as broad as our interests are wide. We dig deep into our clients’ worlds, philosophies, personalities and ambitions, not only to provide any immediate assets, but moreover to create strategic clarity and provide on-going consistent support. Between us we have a great deal of diverse experience in harnessing brand value and have the in-house skills to deliver most projects from seed to launch.
Our philosophy
Ours is a very personal business. A keen interest and belief in our clients and what they do is our fuel. From that comes the most efficient distillation of their requirements, and a honed, exacting focus on how to communicate their proposition to the right audiences. While our processes and methods are well defined, our approach to design is varied, always led by the fundamental user-experience. The world today is highly conflicted, where environment and survival have never been more centre stage. Ethics, decency, value and great care are the key to a practical and sustainable future. In such a context we work with our clients to realise and communicate their best selves.
