Who we are

Fuelled by creativity. Defined by innovation.

We enable global brands to reach untapped audiences and unlock the market potential of their business.

For more than 25 years we have been delivering brand consistency to organisations across the globe, developing the tone of voice and design language that defines their brand purpose, values and behaviours.

Our campaigns demonstrate the wider value of the brands we work with, the development of new opportunities for them to innovate, and the new markets and product areas we’ve helped them to not only unlock, but to become leaders of their respective industries.

“Our purpose is to develop brands that positively change the way we live, by generating ideas that will test the courage of our clients, shift the behaviour of their audiences and spark the passion of everyone inside Oakwood.”
Phil & Neil, Founders

Our experience drives our passion to keep creating

Our independent opinion has helped clients in over 100 countries discover what makes them tick, delivering the right solution for their needs.

We believe everyone has the right to a design opinion, which is why client-agency co-creation succeeds. Our clients anticipate what their competitors can’t through intelligent responses supported by our sector-specific expertise. Cross-pollinated learnings between B2B and B2C take tank engines on the road, make board games social again, and turn audiences into investors.

Loving what we do, our partnership-driven passion produces work that changes behaviours, and keeps our clients customer-focussed, with award-winning work that outperforms.
