CLEVER, CREATIVE PEOPLE.


WHO REALLY GIVE A SHIT.

Why Communicator?

We push boundaries. We challenge every brief to make sure we deliver beyond expectation. Because good is never good enough. We’re smart, ambitious, bold and passionate. And if that’s you too, welcome. You’re in good company.

CREATING BONDS. NOT JUST CAMPAIGNS.

Consumers are constantly bombarded by marketing communication. Their attention is a commodity that’s fiercely coveted and it’s never been harder to break through the noise and inspire action. Brands must change the way they communicate with consumers to carve out a relevant and valuable role in their lives.

This is what we do best and it’s why we’re called Communicator. We look beyond the traditional campaign model, using a blend of strategic insight and creative brilliance to create advocates and recruiters. We build lasting bonds between brands and their consumers.

Our partners in crime

We’re not the agency for everyone. But we are the agency for those who look to challenge and be challenged. For those who want strategic partners and not just implementers. For those who want to push the boundaries and reap the rewards. For those who think smart and act bold.

Who we are

An agency is only as good as its people. And here are just a few of those who make great things happen.

Where we do it

We sit proudly on the top floor of the Tea Building in the heart of Shoreditch. And when we’re not working hard, chances are you’ll catch us at one of our favourite local hangouts.

The Owl & Pussycat

Richard Southon

Managing Director

Richard’s love of painting and economics drove him into a career where his passions would come together beautifully, and where he could constantly remind creative types that he too had an A-level in art. Thirteen years later this killer combination has seen him work on multiple award-winning campaigns for the likes of Hovis, Colgate Palmolive, Starbucks and Jack Daniel’s. Richard’s favourite place on earth is a tiny resort that’s set high in the Valsesia alpine valley where both the skiing and the salumi are meraviglioso. As well as being our MD he’s also chairman of ‘the village’ running club, leading them astray on a number of challenges from 8 mile running pub crawls to Tough Mudder.

Danielle Smith

Client Services
Director

Danielle is Canadian. But proudly a Londoner. With a digital heart. She has over 10 years marketing experience producing outstanding results for a heap of clients both sides of the pond. An Olympian marketer with Coke in Toronto and McDonald's in London, in between finding time to work on Barbie and Harley Davidson, she’s truly a force to be reckoned with. She’s a serial foodie with a penchant for brunch and obscure pop ups. If Danielle doesn’t know about it, then it’s really not worth knowing.

Chloe Ellis

Strategy Officer

Chloe has no idea where the time has gone during her 17-year marketing career. Well for a start it’s gone into developing some kick-ass strategies for a whole host of big name brands especially in alcohol and FMCG areas. That’s because Chloe’s thing is understanding and uncovering the ‘why’ behind brands. Identifying those key insights that drive incisive engagement and inspire creativity. A true health and fitness fanatic; when she’s not running she’s cycling, when she’s not cycling she’s boxing and when she’s not boxing she’s playing netball. We’re all worn out just thinking about it. When Chloe eventually ‘rests’ she devours books with voracity that’s matched only by her appetite for Epoisses.

Andrew Southcott

Finance Director

Andrew has been working in the financial, legal and commercial side of the media industry for 10 years. During that time he’s done sums for some of the UK’s biggest agencies, forging relationships between them and their multi-national clients. Now a converted ‘hipster’, a Hoxton bearded Andrew believes that if he can get the bits behind the scenes right, it provides the perfect platform for the account teams to shine. After a hard day at the office, his evenings are spent either working with the army, playing a very high standard of football or carding an impressive under par round of golf. Sadly, all of these are achieved on his Playstation.

Paul Seligman

Chairman

After studying criminology Paul shunned the beckoning business world to join the local constabulary. But never one to play by the rules, the career of PC1926 was short lived when this free-thinking spirit landed his ‘dream’ job in marketing. With successful stints on both sides of the Atlantic with Seagrams and Britvic under his belt, Paul switched sides to start his own agency. The rest is history, and after years of running Communicator he now spends most of his time skiing, quaffing fine wine, jetting between India (his spiritual home) and London (his actual home), as well as dropping by Communicator to impart his vast marketing knowledge on anyone who’ll listen.
