About us

We’re a small boutique agency with big capabilities. We deliver a cost-effective, no-nonsense approach to our work.

In the 15 years we’ve been around, we’ve firmly established ourselves as a credible alternative to larger agencies – with a more hands-on approach, and a knack of becoming an integral part of your team without project-crippling costs. From our inception back in 2000, we applied our experience within the automotive, interior architecture and luxury retail industries, and brought a new approach to branding, web design and graphics. Within a few years, we’d already worked with companies such as Harrods, Bulgari and Candy & Candy.

The team

Treacle is made up of a core group of talented individuals. Our small in-house team brings fresh and enthusiastic project management and art direction, graphic design, web design and web development experience to any project. We’ve also built up an enviable network of key talent which can be called on at any time to suit your brief. This flexibility allows us to quickly and efficiently create a bespoke team to suit your needs, as and when it’s required. This talent includes:

  • Marketing and PR professionals
  • Illustrators
  • Photographers from a wide range of fields and expertise
  • Copywriters
  • Specialist web developers and UI experts

 

Experience

We’re proud to have worked with a large cross section of the business world, with broad experience in the luxury, investment and property sectors. Equally happy working with start-ups as long established institutions, we’ve worked for companies in London and the South East, as well as internationally across France, Switzerland, USA and Australia.

 

Approach

Design and marketing activity should be key to any business, small or large. A company with a strong identity and an impactful web presence can see a much higher return in sales than one which puts little or no emphasis in its marketing activity. While important to get right, we still feel the design process should be an enjoyable process for our clients, and take an inclusive approach to any project. If it’s technical, we never confuse with jargon; if it’s creative, we won’t go over the top with ‘theory’. Each project follows the same basic core approach:

  • Consultation and project scope
  • Research
  • Design concepts and development
  • Production
  • Testing (web)
  • Deployment
 

Why us?

PLANNING
Without planning, a project can lose direction. Every Treacle project is carefully planned, and timelines are always drawn up and approved before we start. Progress is measured carefully against the original path to ensure everything is delivered on time and in budget.

RESEARCH
Research can play a key part in the success of any project. So we have the expertise and resources to learn about your business, how you operate and how your customers perceive you. We’ll also profile your competition and benchmark where we feel we can reposition you.

DEVELOPMENT
It’s always exciting starting a new project, and it’s very satisfying for both us and you when it’s complete. However, we never lose sight of the brief; we work closely with all our clients to ensure every single aspect goes smoothly from start to finish.

PERSONAL TOUCH
Key to our ongoing success is our belief in keeping things small. Our agency may not be comparable to a large multinational in stature, but our approach to every project – and our genuine interest in our clients – set us apart.

 

Location

Based in Richmond and Wimbledon for the first 10 years of our design journey, our main studio is now a short hop from London in Shere between Dorking and Guildford, Surrey whilst keeping a base in Mayfair London. Nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty, we work in stunning surroundings – so we count ourselves lucky each day we start work. Of course though, living the rural idyll doesn’t mean we don’t have our fingers on the pulse; while we work with many businesses in our local area, our main client base is in and around London.
