A brand new team for every new brand


We're a micro-agency: here's what that means...

 

 

 

Efficient

We don't have a full time staff - everyone is brought in specifically for each project. That means we're not paying salaries where they're not needed... and nor are you.

 

Flexibile

More importantly, if the right designer for you is on the West Coast of the US, we'll use them, if the best developer is on the Adriatic Coast of Italy, we'll use them.

 

Better work

In short, your budget goes further, you get more choice and the work is better. We think this is the future of creative agencies.

Our clients


We start every project with strategy and brand development, so our clients usually come to us for a considered service (not quick fixes).

 

Our focus is in premium brands, sustainability and tech.

Founder

 

Matt has worked in sustainable, corporate and startup branding in the US, UK and Italy. He cut his teeth on the Nike account at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, before founding Dover Ellis in 2013. He's currently consulting for Leo Burnett in Turin, mostly on the Fiat account.

In his spare time Matt enjoys swimming, skiing and writing in the third person.

That world-class branding Matt led for us has continued to serve us well as we expand our little business all around the world.

Partners

 

Dover Ellis is not your usual agency. We'll custom build our team specifically for your project. Think of us as the A-Team for brands (although with less of a fear of flying: we'll work on location too). 

We make exciting work, and that gives us access to a select global network of incredible designers, illustrators, copywriters, photographers and videographers. The breadth and talent of the Dover Ellis network makes for better branding for you.

On top of our 'micro-agency' approach, if you're an agency yourself in need of a strategic lead, Matt is also available as a freelance strategist.

How we work


Remote or on location, integrated into your team or a complete marketing unit.

Skype? Tea?

We're always there for you.

Even when we're not there.

 
 

We work remotely much of the time. That said, it's always much more civilised to have a nice cup of tea and a chat.

If you're based in the UK or Italy we'll make the effort to be at your offices when we can. For US clients we don't need much of an excuse to get over to the States: it's brilliant over your side of the pond.

Regardless, we use all the normal channels to make sure you're never more than a few moments away from an answer.


 
 

We make it difficult

If parts of your brand already work brilliantly, we'll tell you.

If not: we'll tell you.

 

 

We're not always going to tell you what you want to hear, and we expect you to push back sometimes.

We believe that's how the best work gets made.

Or not: we've been honest brands where we think it's not time for a change, even if it might have lost us business.
