Our ethics

How our ethical stance benefits you

We’re an ethical design agency specialising in working with clients that have a purpose beyond profit. This could be ethical businesses, charities, public sector bodies, schools, universities, social enterprises and individuals contributing to a greener, fairer and better world. Our ethical stance will benefit you:

Greater commitment

We help organisations we’re passionate about. We share your values and we’re dedicated to your success. In short, we’ll go the extra mile.

Greater insight

We bring 20 years experience and insight of working with social, ethical and environmental organisations. We’re familiar with your challenges and can hit the ground running.

Accommodating of tight budgets and timescales

We understand that budgets and timescales can be tight and we’ll help you get the most bang for your buck.

We don’t undermine your aims

We don’t help businesses that undermine your aims. It would be counter-productive for us to also work with businesses that contribute to environmental and social problems.

We don’t undermine your values

We don’t work with businesses that foster extrinsic ‘selfish’ values, which undermine the very values you depend on. A large body of evidence shows the link between people’s values and their preponderance to take positive social and environmental steps (see Common Cause). Only by encouraging intrinsic values – those values centred on concern for others and the natural world, connectedness, and self-acceptance – will we create large-scale social change.

We can help you reduce your environmental footprint

We can advise on the use of green paper, printers, printing practices and web hosting companies – helping you reduce your environmental footprint.

We fit with for your socially responsible supply chain

We’re a natural fit with your corporate social responsibility. As a small design business we have a small environmental footprint, which we are committed to reducing. Please see our environmental policy.
