We help businesses find That Thing
That’s true about you, and no one else. That reminds people why you matter or helps you stand out in a busy world. That’ll launch new ideas. Win over new audiences. And breathe new life into the work you do.
And make it sing.
With writing and design. Online, on screen and on paper. Inside and out. Visual identities. Verbal identities. Everything you need to take your Thing to the world.
We’ve been Sheltering and shaping the minds of tomorrow with global student accommodation. Looking at The art and science of decision making with a software and consultancy hybrid business. Showing that boring can be sexy with a Radically Steady, progressive fund manager. Removing the unnecessary with a high street wellness hideaway. We’ve created a thought leadership brand with a large entertainment company. Looked at turning impulse into action with a high street fitness brands. And we’re helping to reinvent travel and infrastructure with the transportation technology brand of the future.
We're hiring – That Thing is looking for a designer and a brand writer to form a TTeam.
We were founded on a two-person team of a writer and a designer.
We’ve got a bit bigger since then, but we’re still big believers in the power of words and pictures when it comes to creating powerful, thoughtful work.
We don’t think these two skills should sit in different rooms, but work next to each other – from briefing to presentation. And now we need a new team to take on some new exciting projects.

Over the last decade, commerce and retail have changed – drastically. More businesses. More global. More clicks. More baskets. More deliveries. More vans and trucks. But vans and trucks hadn’t changed. Old technology, meant new levels of pollution. Congestion. More pressure on a system that was already creaking. With their beautifully smart electric fleet, Arrival are setting out to change that.
As we've become more connected to each other, we've got a little cut off from ourselves. Forever online, but a bit off centre.
Linked in. Strung out. Liking. Sharing. But feeling something’s… missing.
Bhuti is here to help. Through a combination of yoga, massage, food and meditation, it's giving people spaces to find, feed and focus on what really matters. We designed and launched a brand for Bhuti that's equally focused on stripping back everything to the essentials.
Gravis is an investment house formed in 2008. It's built its reputation on funds that are all about the long term – for the country and their investors. But to be this predictable takes thinking that’s anything but. Their Thing is all about being proudly long term as the radically steady fund manager.
We gave Gravis a brand with equally long term ambitions. A Gàlapagos tortoise – steady, strong and with one of the longest life expectancies on the planet. The new system is giving Gravis a new lease of life, and giving the funds the status they deserve.
When it came to quality, Scape were the best in the student accommodation business. With a global launch imminent, they needed to find That Thing that took them beyond brilliantly designed bedrooms. Scape spend a year with the brightest young minds in the world. As well as giving them a place to sleep, they have the chance to challenge them, open their eyes a bit wider and make their prospects even brighter. Or as we put it, to shelter and shape the minds of tomorrow.
We work with Scape to bring Shelter and Shape to life across every part of their business. Online and on the walls of the buildings. From boardroom to bedroom, London to Sydney.
Acumen are a software and consultancy business who help some of the biggest brands out there to keep track of their pricing and promotions. After a successful decade, they needed to find That Thing to clearly sum up their brilliant but complex work and compete with the biggest names in the consultancy world. After getting our heads around their complex work, we realised that the Thing they do above everything else was quite simple: Acumen helped their clients make better decisions.
Our work helped Acumen to reintroduce themselves to the market after ten years and finally do justice to their energetic, inventive business.
We were asked by Bode to work on a brand for a new development. With buy-in from local residents and businesses, it was set to transform a lost part of Archway.
Rather than spend our time focused solely on the building, our approach was to put just as much time energy into promoting a sometimes overlooked part of London.
Hill House is a brand showing the best of the new building.
And On The Hill covers Archway and around, showing the best of the area. It’s a brand that we hope will live on doing good for the area long after the last flat’s been sold.
