we work best when

we work together

and drink coffee.

we are cafe.

An independent agency co-operative. A community of thinkers, creatives, designers and client partners. That’s right, for us our clients are a part of our team.

After years of working within big agency networks, we decided to bring our experience and enthusiasm (we love what we do) to work with ambitious and entrepreneurial businesses and brands helping them to grow and thrive. Working collaboratively, around the table, both physically and virtually. Without egos. Without bureaucracy. Without bullshit.

We create bespoke teams for each brief, ensuring we have the right people, working in the right way, for the right results. We dig deep revealing insights and distinctive ways to unlock a business’s potential.

We design bold and beautiful. And we create big juicy creative ideas that bring brands to life.

cafe is a simple idea.

We think. We create. We design. Together.

our work.

we help start up and
scale up brands to find
their voice and identity.

Business Partner. Playful. Chelsea fan. Still gigging.

Bob has worked with some of the world’s most iconic brands and companies, including HSBC, Duracell, BBC, Bayer, P&G and Unilever. But it is establishing cafe that has been his proudest career achievement to date.


Delivery Partner. Plate spinner. Ridiculously organised. Dance lover. Fabulous shoes.

Nat quite simply makes things happen. Across all aspects of integrated comms, Nat consistently delivers on time and on budget and always with a smile on her (and everyone else’s) face.

Creative Partner. Bearded. Mad about dogs. Sometimes a bit scruffy.

Paul has been a creative director both agency and client side for over 20 years. Working with the likes of British Airways, Bayer, Johnson & Johnson, Vodafone and Nokia, he has created award-winning work for both creativity and effectiveness.
