hardy was created out of years of experience in top UK advertising agencies with the thought that an agency can be a different being. Without the endless bureaucracy, unnecessary overhead, and inflated fees. Instead, we focused on the one thing that is valuable - the senior talent. Highly collaborative, agile, experienced, awarded and fully engaged.
In our collective resume we have some of the famous agency names like M&C SAATCHI, Adam & Eve DDB, Ogilvy, JWT and some of the biggest brand names like BMW Mini, Porsche, Hyundai, Virgin, NatWest, Halifax, John Lewis and many more. We've won FWA's and Webby's.
And then we decided to create agency that is less about business and more about human. Our clients are our partners, and we collaborate to create unique and engaging digital experiences.
We make digital the starting point around which evolves creative, strategy and technology. We place your brand in the centre of digital ecosystem without underestimating the power of traditional media. We focus on human aspect. We work this way because it works.
Whether you're a startup or an enterprise, informational or e-commerce - we aim to produce simple answers to complex challenges. We are flexible, curious, inventive and quick problem-solvers. And there always is an answer.
Creativity is a state of mind. Therefore, we're not website designers. Or developers. Or content creators. We're digital craftsmen specialising on all of those and many more because we don't believe in boundaries and categories. We think holistically and streamline the solution by selecting only the pieces of the puzzle that are of value.
When you come to us with a problem or an idea, we carefully listen to get an understanding of the bigger picture. Sometimes what you need is a new website. But when it is not, we can help you plan your Digital Strategy to achieve your business goals and future development of your brand using multitude of platforms and channels.
We believe digital needs to be human-friendly therefore UX & UI is paramount. We create seamless, user-centric digital products that allows users to not only see but experience your brand. We believe that beautiful function creates beautiful form that is easy to manage and long lasting, whether it is a brochure site, e-commerce platform or a mobile app.
Whether you're an established brand seeking to refresh its look or a newly born business concept - we can help you find the right language to communicate with your audience and express what you stand for. We create complex brand identities that find the right balance between strict visual consistency and practical usage flexibility to ensure longevity in the fast-changing digital world.
We are platform agnostic but we're practical. We will work together with you to decide on the best technical solution for your project. A solution that not only considers business goals, usability and cost efficiency but will also ensure lasting performance and future adaptability combined with easy maintenance.
Internet is a vast ocean and launching a website is like sending a little boat off the coast. Nobody knows until you make it visible for the search engines and your audience. We partner with an award winning specialist SEO team to ensure that your website is fully optimised from the word 'go' and stays this way afterwards.
Digital is not always about getting you from 0 to 1 in less than 3. Sometimes it is about creating the right content, a custom designed set of icons for your application, infographics to explain your product or a video animation. We think of it as an excuse to do what we love most - play with digital.
We believe that good work speaks for itself, especially when gets noticed by an award committee. It's always an opportunity to learn what you did well. And most importantly, what you didn't.
