About us

Plum Ideas? Who? How many times have we heard that?
But people always remember it - a little like our work really.

Well, by way of an introduction, we are a results driven agency specialising in brand, direct and digital communications. We offer the full service from planning and strategy development, to creative, production and analysis.

 

Based in the Midlands but with clients all over the UK (and beyond!).

 

At home in both B2C and B2B markets and across all media, we are capable of handling everything from a multi-channel brand launch to a lovingly crafted customer letter.

 

No matter what your requirements, our objectives will be the same – to build your business through original, relevant and cost-effective communications.

Our values

We do things a bit differently at Plum!

We’ve structured the agency to provide our clients with senior level input in all areas – strategy, account handling, creative and production. So you get the 'big agency' expertise and ideas WITHOUT the 'big agency' fees.

 

We will commit time to understand your business - and that includes the boundaries as well as the opportunities - before delivering successful campaigns on time and in budget.

 

We’ve been around since 1998 - and some clients have been with us since 'Day 1' - so we must be doing something right!
