Intelligent
creativity

Harleys is a full-service creative agency. Our specialisms include strategy, content creation, design, and interactive media. By combining these skills, we create powerful B2B marketing communications that motivate engagement, drive sales and raise brand value.

We call this intelligent creativity.

Our roots

Established in 1983, Harleys started as an advertising and graphic design firm on the outskirts of Bristol, South West England. The company has now flourished into a global agency, with a wealth of experience in delivering high-impact projects for products, services and solutions.

We believe that a true reflection of success comes from what your customers say about you. This is why we are proud to be on the Recommended Agencies Register (RAR), an intermediary service that endorses agencies based on the opinions of their clients. The key criteria that RAR measures includes customer satisfaction, creativity, strategic thinking, value for money and effect.

Our approach

Creating clever communications and brilliant brands requires a unique approach, supported by trust and commitment. Harleys listens to our clients and understands their needs. We work with them as partners, helping to develop ideas with passion, designed to engage and excite audiences.

Insight

Before anything else, we like to get to know you. What you do, what you stand for and who you want to connect with. We gain a deep understanding of our clients' objectives and the market they operate in, this enables us to develop compelling solutions that support your organisation’s growth.

Inspire

Getting to the core message and communicating that in the most effective way is central to everything we do. By combining strong content with fresh ideas, we develop effective marketing strategies that inspire audiences globally.

Engage

Being heard in a noisy world requires content that clearly communicates a vision and captures the audience’s imagination. Using storytelling techniques and focused creative development, we develop smart solutions that engage on every channel.

INTERACT

Connecting with audiences means creating extraordinary experiences. Our expertise enables us to provide a richer communications plan, delivering measured cross-platform interactions that support stronger relationships with your customers.

He is passionate about branding, whether that’s being creative within guidelines or building whole new identities. Ken is always first to try out the latest breakthroughs in the world of tech.
