I love working with the Makalu team. I can brief them to look at anything, knowing it will be met with enthusiasm, delivered to an exceptionally high standard – always on time – and they often go above and beyond what’s required too. The team have great experience and know what will work, ensuring our campaigns stand out in a really competitive market. Friendly and fun to work with, they’ve played a big part in the continuing success of the Merrydown brand.

In my last three roles, I have worked with the Makalu team on a variety of projects, usually starting with a complete overhaul of each new business’ branding and communications campaigns. Whether I’ve asked Makalu to take on a complete rebrand, update the advertising or help me set up an in-house digital team they’ve always done a fantastic job. They’re strategically smart, hugely experienced, brilliantly creative, honest and easy to work with. I know I can count on them one-hundred-per-cent to deliver fantastic solutions no matter what challenge I set them.

Makalu are so easy to work with! All my briefs are met with enthusiasm and I can trust the team to interpret the brief and respond with great creativity. The client services team are very organised and that definitely helps with my very busy schedule. I know I can count on them to turn around all project work and digital assets efficiently, and with unmatched positivity.

A real stand-out project this year has been the Highcross Beacons and this has been a fantastic project to collaborate with Makalu on. They’ve produced a year’s worth of animated content spanning from choreographed synchronised swimmers to psychedelic animations for our Winter Galactical event. The Beacons have pride of place within the centre, and it’s great to see them looking so brilliant all year round. They’ve gained a lot of traction on social media – and the business are particularly happy with them. We’re looking forward to continuing with this project all throughout the next year.

They’re a great agency to work with (and I’ve worked with lots of different ones), plus they’re a really fun group to be around too!

The team at Makalu are an absolute pleasure to work with: they’re always so helpful and accommodating. I always feel like they go the extra mile to deliver fantastic work – no matter the brief. Friendly and fun to work with, they’ve played a big part in the delivery of many successful projects for our centre over the past few years.

I have never known an agency to be so helpful, accommodating, quick and proactive in the way you support the business, in no small part reflective and down to the people in it! From the rooftop cinema to our brand amalgamation, you guys have been fantastic to work with and I can’t thank you enough for everything.

Ian Harvey
Marketing Manager – Centrale & Whitgift

Makalu are an exceptionally talented agency. Nothing is impossible for them. From brilliant planning and management of really demanding large-budget multi-language projects to their always-excellent creative concepts and design work, I know I can count on them to deliver. They’re great to get along with and handle high-pressure projects brilliantly too, demonstrated each time they’ve run our big photoshoot productions abroad – they’re a really super team!

Sales and Marketing Director, Fruit of the Loom Europe

Having worked with Makalu before, when I moved to a new business in a completely different sector, I was keen to bring them in as I knew they’d be the perfect team to help us. The Brammer Buck & Hickman & Rubix offer is a complex one to work with, but Makalu have taken on every challenge brilliantly. Among many other positives, they’re excellent on strategy and planning, have turned very technical content into excellent copy with a clear tone of voice, created a great brand proposition for us, and given us a fantastic master-brand look –  as well as creating impactful campaigns for new products in our own-brand portfolio. We very much look forward to briefing the team on the next stage of Rubix’s development in the UK.
