Over the past decade we’ve heard businesses ask us the same question, ‘I know we need to change, I know you can make things attractive, but how can we make it stick?’ This conundrum is the biggest strategic challenge facing modern brands and SomeOne’s specialist subject.

We make change pay for brands in all sectors, all countries, all of the time.

We invent brands with clients. Or re-invent them ready for new business challenges. We do branding, not blanding.

We don’t change symbols, we create symbols of change.

Unlike large, traditional groups, working with SomeOne means you meet and work with the people who actually do the work. Direct contact with SomeOne’s creative minds means ideas flow more freely, which is important as great brands need great opinions. We don’t fit projects into pre-determined processes, we create bespoke teams around each project.

Ideas excite us, they shape the future, add value and signal change. We’ve moved from being a cost, to an asset. We help organisations, products and services profit from change. That’s why we concentrate on creating Big Ideas first, then go about making them beautifully. We often create monopolies for brands by employing creativity to connect business strategy with memorable and adaptive visual executions.
