We are recognised worldwide as a creative agency. Our point of difference lies in our ability to fuse the disciplines of direct marketing, user-experience, consumer planning and big data into behavior changing ideas that deliver value for our clients and memorable experiences for people.


We’ve got an impeccable record for new business, in the last two years we picked up: Ikea, John Lewis, Guide Dogs, Bacardi Global and Virgin Atlantic, to name a few… and we continue to grow our existing client relationships annually.


Proximity London is the biggest office in a worldwide network of 67 offices, and over 2,500 people globally.  But, unlike some agencies we maintain the feel and attitude of a smaller shop (no, honestly! – it’s what our clients say).
