We are an ideas-led brand design agency with a difference. Allow us to explain…
How We Work
Whether it’s advertising, packaging, brand development, or brand experience, we believe in a close collaboration of art and design. It’s what drives us. It’s what excites our clients.
Good strategy is a craft and it is fundamental to the creative process. We deliver compelling creative ideas by building upon strong strategic foundations rooted in fundamental brand and consumer insights.
Our people are our greatest achievement and together we bring unique perspectives to all we do. We attract and keep people who are not only wildly talented but also have fun together. Inspired people deliver inspiring work.
Our best client relationships are collaborative and we see ourselves as your team. We communicate clearly, define expectations and workflow transparently, and invite our clients to get to know us. No egos get in the way here.
We have a long-standing network of exceptional partners whose skills compliment our own. They allow us to quickly scale up for a project, be more flexible and respond to the needs of our clients.
Vault49 Creative Labs are a platform for exploration, discovery and communication for many different audiences.
The origins of Vault49 are from within a ‘Creative Lab’ environment and we continue to integrate this stimulating, highly engaging and original process throughout all aspects of our work.
Our DNA as craftspeople uniquely positions us to provide authentic and exciting Creative Lab experiences that communicate a brand’s vision of creative inspiration to its various audiences: internal, trade, and consumers.
As example, we recently hosted a Creative Lab for our friends at Diageo where we explored various ways to bring to life gifting ideas for Baileys. We facilitated workshops and hosted art-making sessions to explore tactile solutions around various brand touchpoints, resulting in a three-year pipeline for packaging, seasonal gifting, retail and large scale activation for Baileys.
We have also delivered consumer-focused Creative Lab solutions for clients in London, Berlin, Rio, Seoul, and across the US.
Whether it’s a closed set or an event, Vault49 Creative Labs are an authentic, interactive, exciting way to communicate a brand’s essence of creative inspiration.
We strongly believe in the power of design in driving business performance.
Vault49’s Creative Lab for Baileys delivered a three-year ideas pipeline, in a remarkably resource efficient and exciting way - not to mention being great fun for all of our brand team.
“Vault49 bring something very special and collaborative to every project and focus on the entire creative journey. Driven by creativity, curiosity and passion, the combination of personalities, designers, illustrators, typographers and directors at Vault49 deliver work that elevates design to an art form."
