Strategy-led design thinking for brands of the built environment.


We are a creative agency that delivers strategic design and marketing services to shape and strengthen brands of the built environment. This specialist approach reflects our considerable expertise in the sectors of architecture and property.

As our name suggests, through a process of exploration, we distil. This sees us create brand stories and activate brand experiences that engage and resonate in today’s ever-changing commercial environment.

Collaboration is a key element of our company ethos. We work closely with our clients to really understand the essence and aspirations of their business, and their commercial objectives.

Having worked with leading brands in the architecture and property industry, we understand the built environment inside and out. These insights inform our thinking, seeing us craft design and marketing strategies that are authentic, commercially-minded and connect with customers to deliver our clients a compelling competitive edge.

We know the industry – and we understand what it takes for a brand to succeed.


Led by Creative Director, Nicky Taylor, our influence has helped guide key brands within the architecture and property industries. By distilling and defining how our clients should express who they are, and the ways they can change how people feel about them, we deliver finely honed strategy that achieves these objectives.


We know the industry, and we understand the challenges and opportunities that exist in building a competitive and authentic brand. We apply insights built through first-hand experience to engage audiences (both external and internal) by applying cost-effective techniques that are authentic, memorable and results-driven.

When thinking externally, we also consider the internal by ensuring our strategies nurture the brand and culture. There is always purpose behind our design thinking and our strong company values see integrity and collaboration being at the heart of our approach.
