Purple is a creative, data and digitally minded agency. If you’re looking for a partner to help you reach a wider audience and connect with them more effectively, then you’re in the right place!

Engaging experiences

We live in an interconnected world where audiences are in control. They share their experiences via social media and connect with brands using mobile technologies on their own terms.

Gaining their attention and keeping their interest means taking them on a journey that tells the story of your brand. Where every touchpoint is meaningful and forms part of a personal voyage of discovery that leads them to your door.

Creating engaging experiences means seeing the world through the eyes of your customers. We analyse their behaviour, listen to what they are saying, understand what they’re thinking and then create engaging experiences that inspire them to connect with your business.


Experiences that Matter

Whatever your marketing objective and whoever your target audience, your communication needs to be meaningful so people connect with it. This requires insight and an understanding of what matters to the people you’re speaking to.

From focus groups to data-driven analytics, Purple’s insight team delve deep into the psyche of your audience, identifying what activates them and how and where to engage with them most effectively.

Through human and data-driven insight, and some carefully honed strategic thinking, we create campaigns, optimise websites and develop content that is both meaningful and adds value to your customers' experience.

“The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said”

Peter Drucker, Management Consultant


Bringing ideas to life

Deeper insight means brighter ideas. So we create content that not only looks good, but speaks directly to your audience. Creativity is more than just great design. It is about carrying the idea through the whole user experience, from websites and technical innovation to production and media. Aligning every element to carry your message directly to your customers and delivering it with the impact it takes to leave a long lasting impression.

We know how important it is to keep your content fresh and in tune with the way your audience interacts with it. And if they like what they see, they’re more likely to tweet, blog and talk about it, giving the idea a life all of its own.


Sharing our experience

When open minds and talent combine extraordinary things happen. And this doesn’t stop at our agency door. Collaboration means being inclusive and working in partnership with you, our client, to make amazing things happen.

We are 72 skilled, dedicated individuals. From creatives to developers, strategists and planners, we bring our collective experience to bear on your marketing project to produce work we can all be proud of.
