Our Philosophy

Collaborative and always curious.
This is the common thread through the HDY team… unpicking and resolving tricky business problems is how we get our kicks!

Skills, talent, brands, consumers and businesses alike, by building relations we bolster our offering as the friendly extension of your team.

Be More Kid.
It’s all about being curious about the world and seeking out new ways to explore. Open your eyes wider, follow your instincts and have fun.

HDY’s Founding Principles

HDY was founded in a quest to disrupt the agency status quo by building a collective of talented people determined to think big and to have fun along the way.

The philosophy of play and tapping into your inner child’s curiosity are the principles upon which HDY was built – our Founder, Ed James, even wrote a book on it!

Based in the heart of Birmingham, we’re proud to live and serve in the UK’s creative capital.
