Our story

Drew was founded in 2005 by our CEO, Elle Moss. We’re named after Elle’s beloved grandfather, Major George Drew, an inspirational ex-Colditz POW who championed Elle's creativity and always encouraged her to take chances with it.


Our story started as just one woman with a deep love of branding and a laptop. Today, we’re a team of multidisciplinary brand experts who bring extensive large agency experience to our small and friendly boutique branding studio.

But one thing hasn't changed: creativity and curiosity remain at the heart of what we do for our wide-ranging roster of clients. We like to think we’re doing them, and our namesake Major George Drew, proud.

Our Process

We’ve spent years perfecting a process that takes our clients on a journey from discovery to design to delivery. It’s so much more than a checklist; it’s a proven approach that brings client-delighting results.


Discover

Your brand is central to everything. It’s the foundation of how your employees, customers and users connect with who you are and what you do. But how do they see you? And does that match with how you want them to see you? We help you discover this and more through in-depth research into your audiences, your peers and competitors, taking into account your brand’s history and exploring your future aspirations.

Design

Using our findings, our creative team comes together to design effective and beautiful visual communications for your brand. We work iteratively, first presenting a range of creative options, then refining the creative in collaboration with you until we arrive at the ideal fit for you and what you need to achieve.

Deliver

To us, branding goes beyond simply design. It's innate in how your organisation communicates and connects with the world. That’s why we’ve grown our team to include expertise and delivery excellence not just in branding and design but also in strategic communications, social media, digital development and print production.

The question which underpins each stage of our process is simply:

What does success look like?
