About us(Although we'd rather talk about you)
Describing Stretch in a few words…
Stretch is a small but mighty strategic marketing and communications agency.
We’re capable of handling anything – and we like a challenge. We’ve successfully covered diverse jobs ranging from the successful pan-European launch of a new brand for Levi Strauss, the strategic segmentation of the entire estate of M& B pubs, introducing contraception franchises in the Philippines, right down to organizing the Christmas decorations for a small pub chain in Hertfordshire. Whilst we’re versatile and adept at what we do, most of our clients come mainly from the retail, leisure and hospitality industries.
That’s because our clients tend to come to us mostly by recommendation through people we know or have worked with, people we’ve met on trains or whilst working on other jobs, and occasionally from out of the blue – like a web page contact form …
Our team is made up of some terrifically experienced people who have honed their talents in world class agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA and McCann Erickson – or have worked client side at impressive organizations such as Levi Strauss and Yellow Pages. And we have years of real hands-on experience in digital too. Because of the growing need for clients to keep costs down, we design and build easy-to-use websites which you can update yourself. We create all our own photographic and video content – so there’s no need to resort to libraries. And we’ll get you up and running with a blog and social media too.
Best of all, we understand the real limitations of time and money. So we’re lean, keen and fast. You get the best of all worlds. World class big agency experience combined with the rates of a small independent. And because you’re directly paying the people working on your business, it’s in our interests to get it right first time, on time and on budget.
If you have a project that you’d like to discuss please get in touch. Really. We don’t bite.
Clear CommunicationWe don’t like mumbo-jumbo marketing speak. We’d rather keep it succinct and clear. Plain English. That’s us.
Innovative IdeasWe’re brimming with ideas. Hopefully some of them will be ones you haven’t thought of. And we can implement them too.
Skills & ExperienceWe started in 1996. So we’ve been around a while. We’ve seen, done and learnt a lot of things. We’ll bring that experience to the table.
On Time & On BudgetFrom the minute we receive your brief we will be working to a plan. Fast & furious to meet the agreed deadlines and budget.
Here are just some of the clients that we have been lucky enough to have worked with since 1996
