DO YOU DO DESIGN?
No – the clue’s in our name. Although we can team up with designers (and recommend people, just ask). It’s something we’ve been doing more and more. Designers make our thinking and words look better and we move on their work in different ways too. Rob trained as a designer, though, so he’s got a (mid-nineties) eye for it.
DO YOU WRITE BROCHURES?
Not really, although we make an exception for the most fun and interesting brochures in the world ever (we’re still waiting). Smart thinking and good words can crack a lot of tricky branding problems, so that’s what we do.
HOW DID YOU GET INTO THIS?
By accident. Rob ran a web company and Molly worked at Penguin Books, BBC Radio 1 and a few branding agencies before their paths crossed at a writing company. We were the ‘Brand Language’ bit. Then we left and never used the phrase ‘brand language’ again.
WOULD YOU LIKE A DRINK?
Tea and water for Molly-Two-Drinks-Mackey please. Just water for Rob. (Unless we meet you in a good coffee place and then it’s flat whites and latte art a-go-go.)
