We’ll tackle any brief, no matter the lifestage of your brand; whether it’s defining the brand positioning, reinvigorating your creative strategy, or if there’s an existing idea that needs tailoring into an effective advert, our team can help.


We’re a safe pair of hands

We have over 15 years’ experience in both launching first time advertisers, and in helping market-leading brands maximise their response-led advertising.

We have worked with Happy Hour for a few years now and are impressed with the creativity, professionalism and work rate of the team.With our most recent campaign, the culmination of a brand repositioning project with Happy Hour, the team were able to bring alive the Toolstation brand creatively. The new campaign gives a great visual representation with the introduction of the Toolstation ‘helping hand’ as well as telling our customers about our key messages in a fun engaging way.”

John Meaden, Marketing Director, Toolstation

At Happy Hour we’re a team of talented people from different backgrounds; some of us have big agency experience in planning and strategy, some have production and filmmaking backgrounds, and some are copywriters and creatives who come up with the big ideas. We bring all this experience together in a seamless process that will take your brand from strategy, to script, to screen.

We pride ourselves on being reassuringly effective – finding insightful creative ideas designed to affect response, whether that be a change of attitude or behaviour, or an immediate action or emotion.

So whether you need to launch your brand, drive customer acquisition, change perceptions or raise awareness, we’ll create content to suit your needs.
