Creativity has the remarkable power to create change. But all too often, it’s used to fuel false needs and fake desires. We believe it’s time for better – to turn that very power into positive impact.

Since 2008, we’ve led by taking action – and inspired others to do the same. This means being honest about what the world really needs, by creating work with social and environmental impact.

As a purpose-driven creative agency, we’re here to change minds and push people to demand better. And with our mix of thinkers, creators and makers, we’ve got the team to do it.

So, how can we help?

How we make it work

Complex problems don’t always require complicated solutions – just unexpected thinking. We keep our process simple, so we can focus on finding the right answer.


It always begins with a question. What’s the problem we’re trying to solve? Answering this requires some serious thinking. We get to know your audience, find what makes you different and turn it into a plan for how we’re going to solve it.


To put our plan into action, we start exploring tangents, looking for drama and connecting unexpected thoughts. This is where we find new ideas – the big ones, the type of ideas that make you feel something and want to do better.


Bringing concepts to life takes detailed planning and preparation. Our team of makers carefully craft their creations with a keen attention to detail to make sure they stand out from the crowd.


To make a real impact, our creative work needs to be effective. That’s why we set targets, hold ourselves to account and learn what we need to do to make things better if they’re not working.

Where do we draw the line?

We don’t just work with anyone

We created a tool called the Moral Compass that makes sure we stay true to our beliefs. Everyone at Nice and Serious gets the chance to vote on new briefs, so we collectively decide whether to respond – or politely decline.

We’re a Certified B Corp

This means putting our money where our mouth is, and making sure we balance our purpose and profit. We're legally required to consider the impact of our decisions on our team, our clients, our community and the environment.

We’re a London Living Wage Employer

People need to get paid fairly to get by, and unfortunately the current minimum wage doesn't quite cut it. That's why we've committed to paying a real living wage, based on the true cost of living.
