The Fold are a group of likeminded people, passionate about using creativity to deliver great results.

IT'S IN OUR NAME

We believe the best environment for nurturing creativity is a relaxed one. So we’ve created a place where people feel free to articulate their ideas without buzzwords or judgement.

In the studio, the directors flip the switch on the kettle as regularly as our interns (well almost). Likewise, our obsession with craft and effectiveness runs through everything we do. It’s this balance between professionalism and informality that creates a culture in which people thrive.

That’s why, if you ask our colleagues or clients, working with us is mostly effortless, usually fun and always effective.
