Our Culture

We are a small agency with a large personality.

From our forensic dissections of the latest blockbuster TV series (ALL of them) to swapping precious nuggets of celebrity gossip, the buzz of conversation is a constant backdrop as we go about our work. If you love to chat, you’ll fit in nicely here.

Our office is nestled halfway along leafy Clyde Road, right in the middle of the bustling triangle of Ballsbridge, Donnybrook and Upper Baggot Street with, oh only about a million cafés, restaurants and pubs to choose from.

Transport-wise, we are a 10 minute walk from Lansdowne Road DART station. Buses are also plentiful, the Luas is close by and there’s loads of bike-parking space here too. We spend a fair bit of time thinking and strolling in our ‘back yard’ (Herbert Park) where the coffee in Lolly & Cook’s helps to get the morning started.

All in all, this is a great place to work. Friendly people, a beautiful part of town and some cool projects to get stuck into – you’d love it here!
