gt&i was born out of a collaboration between the creative, marketing and PR industries.
Its founders, the former Creative Director of Publicis London and a Partner of Four plc, were determined to offer the very best for smart business leaders. And that meant, no matter the sector or ambition, treating each client as though their business was our own.
The result is an insight-driven, strategy-first, full-service creative agency, with a track record of delivering results. We connect strategy to proposition to brand to campaign and beyond. And we deliver stunning creative and big ideas that cut through the clutter, that engage, that stimulate, that drive action and interaction, online, in print and in person. Ultimately we build brands that people want to talk about.
For many of our clients reviewing their brand and proposition is just the start of a journey that leads to a deeper relationship built on ongoing marketing services. From strategic consultancy to advertising, SEO to social campaigns and public relations, delivered by our consultants in property, corporate, CSR and fashion.
