Makalu works with clients who recognise the advantages of partnering with a collaboratively-minded smaller team: clients who enjoy working more closely with the people who directly add value to their brand’s communications.

Makalu is a perfect choice for larger clients used to working with top agency talent but looking to make their budgets work harder in the current business climate.

But we’re also an ideal creative partner for smaller clients who want top-agency quality without the top-agency invoices. Makalu is highly cost-effective: rather than contributing to the running of a mass of agency departments, with us you only pay for the services you actually use.

We can act as lead agency, or take a specialist, ego-free, financially-efficient role alongside other agencies that you like to work with (and bringing a little friendly competition to help you keep the big boys on their toes).

Retained business, ongoing projects, one-hit-wonders – we help all kinds of clients with all kinds of work. Got a project you’d like to try us with? We’d love to show you what we can do.

From big TV campaigns to product POS, global websites to brand identities, brand positioning to mobile apps, print and outdoor, Makalu can originate naturally-integrated campaigns across broadcast, print and digital, or dynamic single elements to support your overall campaign.

Whatever our involvement, we think you’ll find working with Makalu a happy experience.
