How we work

Purpose can’t be imposed, it has to put people at the heart of design and delivery. We use co-creation to ensure purpose is inclusive, effective and drives impact at every stage of the process - because it’s always powered by people.


Given is everything – and more – an agency partner could possibly have been. From day one, they set out towards our shared ambition and did everything possible to take us there. Every asset and approach has been thoughtful, relevant and creative, and the quality has consistently been A+."

Katie McCrory

Global Communications Lead IKEA

The co-creation of our brand purpose, values and behaviours with Given was one of those initiatives which we have referred back to many times over the past couple of years when reflecting on the highlights of how we have quickly turned LNER into a leading rail business."

David Horne

Managing Director, LNER

We wanted an agency that could straddle commercial brand marketing knowhow and real responsible and sustainability business expertise - without compromising either. That’s how we found Given."

David Schofield

Group Head of Corporate Responsibility Aviva

I would not hesitate recommending Given to any purpose led business that has ambitions to shift its paradigm - they bring experience, credibility and know how to the projects they lead on - and they bring so much more than just the tangibles - they bring conviction, commitment, belief, passion and hard work to deliver the best results."
