About Us

We are a marketing consultancy who help organisations which deserve to exist to grow.

Our primary expertise is strategic creative marketing. All our work is digitally focused, and all designed to create impact through comms and UX. We work with our clients to co-create a strategy against their business goals, through defining a focused set of guidelines and tactics inside them which create real impact.

We believe great work only comes from working in partnership with you. It's why we believe you'll see better value from long-term projects, executed well, against specific objectives.

Why the Name?

Tough means we are forever accountable for what we do or what we fail to do ... Competent means we will never take anything for granted. We will never be found short in our knowledge and in our skills.

Gene Kranz, 30 January 1967

In a world where everyone tells you to move fast and break stuff, we believe in the value of going slower and getting it right first time. It might be a little old-fashioned, but we contend that it's more relevant now than ever.

We believe...

  • Consultancy should be strategic, creative should be timeless, and discussions should be meaningful
  • Building brand awareness, affinity and loyalty is more meaningful working just to meet the next quarterly report, and
  • All our work should deliver long-term impact through the compounding effect of marginal gains.
