Marketing Agency Kent | About Us

We are a creative agency founded in 2008 – an experienced team with traditional values and a modern approach to integrated marketing communications

Our Experience

Collectively the Creative Heads team has experience in all aspects of marketing communications from brand identity to annual reports, public relations, events, video, website design and so much more!

We are designers, developers, digital experts, writers, strategists and marketeers to name a few. Many of us have learnt our trade at leading agencies in London and abroad before joining Creative Heads to provide first class marketing communications from a more cost-effective base in Canterbury.

Our B2B and B2C clients range from a small start-up to a global technology corporation with a turnover in excess of US$400m, including financial, software, retail, travel and manufacturing companies, not-for-profit, charities, SMEs and public sector organisations.

Our Approach

A return on investment for our clients is at the heart of the agency’s marketing approach. Some disciplines are more difficult to measure, but where possible we demonstrate best value. Sometimes the approach is strategic and complex, but we also recognise some projects just require a simple cost-effective approach with a fast turnaround.

The value is in our people and their expertise. When committing to work with us it is essential to get the chemistry right as we prefer to have a trusted, open and honest ‘partnership’ rather than a more distant client/supplier relationship.

We treat our work very seriously and respect clients enormously, but it is also important for everyone to enjoy what they do. This always leads to greater success for both parties and is one of the reasons why our clients stay with us for the long term.
