A different way of working

I have worked in the brand design industry for 25 years, half of that spent working at board level within some of the world’s largest global brand agencies.


In 2009, I started Brand Arkade. I had a young family by that time and needed to find a different way of working - fewer airplanes!

I was lucky to have made an impact with some amazing clients who supported the development of the business and we've kept going through recommendations, great relationships and a particularly helpful way of working.

Flexibility is key to all we do - location, budgets and approaches. Most frequently we work directly with clients as external consultants; however, sometimes we are engaged as ‘specialists’ within other consultancy teams or as part of a client’s internal team.


We are as happy to do small elements of projects as we are to manage an entire programme and we are nomadic in terms of our ‘place of work’ – each project will have a location that most effectively fosters engagement with the client team and the brand’s respective customers and stakeholders.


 

Happy clients make our day...

 

I have worked with Robin for more than 5 years on different projects, across different retail sectors. Her passion, knowledge, and dedication are second to none. She has the ability to take a vague brief, and turn it into a fully fledged, multi-faceted, and successful campaign. She is fun to work with and fits seamlessly into any team or environment in which she is working. She is my go to person for branding and marketing strategy.

Head of Business Development  Hakim Group
