We’re about Ideas, not offices.

chicken/egg hatched in June 2004 nurtured by MD Karen Davis whose experience within the marketing and design industry since 1989 gave her the ambition to try a better way of servicing clients.  We’re made up of a vast talent pool of senior ex-agency or trade professionals and project teams are built around the needs of the client.  Flexible working, constant communication and modern technology bring the freedom to create without traditional constraints of where and when we work.

Good for us: At chicken/egg we can concentrate on what we do best. Everyone has their own expertise. We don’t compete with each other, we rely on each other. There’s no I in our TEAM – but there is tea, and sometimes cake.

Good for you: Our clients don’t pay us for maintaining expensive London offices. They aren’t paying for our commute time to meetings or when we file paperwork. They never pay for people they don’t need.  chicken/egg helps to support your business – you don’t have to support ours.

Covering a multitude of sectors and disciplines, from IT to Retail and from B2B to consumer promotions, we have delivered campaigns for many blue-chip and small businesses including traditional design and print to full e-commerce sites, PR and social media strategies right through to events, exhibitions and even the odd celebrity launch party!
