the three amigos
The rumours are true, we did indeed “only” launch in May 2020 - yes, in the middle of the pandemic. After many years working together as an in-house marketing team, having previously all worked for large London-based agencies, we decided there was definitely space for something different. Something between agency and freelancer. We’d all worked both as the client and for the client; we wanted to take the best (and remove the worst) from both sides and offer it up on a plate to brands who needed it.
Since then, we’ve worked with 35 brands to-date, some of which joined us on week one and are still with us today, others who we worked with on a project-basis and meet for beers when we all happen to be in town.
To celebrate our 1 year as amiiigos (which, by the way, was a name taken straight from our age-old WhatsApp group), we found a lovely new studio in London Fields, where dogs are welcome and office tequila is encouraged.

You’d be correct in assuming Sophie is writing this paragraph about herself right now. it’s a little awkward writing in the third person.
As a Creative Lead, we reckon you have to have a pretty good grasp on what is considered “quality” content, which comes from experience in the field. Sam’s expertise has come from creating standout ATL content for household names as a CGI artist and directing large-scale creative campaigns. As a talented photographer and videographer with a scarily good eye for detail, Sam is also highly skilled in graphic design and motion graphics, all of which is put to good use to help develop brand design and deliver awesome content for our clients.
