About

1HQ is a Global team of curious, creative and committed brand specialists. We ask and answer the hard questions that determine how brands should be positioned, how they should innovate and how they are best represented through design and communication.

The accelerating pace of change in markets constantly challenges brands to come up with answers. So why are we so interested in questions?

Our experience tells us that getting to the right answer starts when you ask the right question. It’s the one that gets to the heart of the issue. It’s simple, insightful and reveals powerful opportunities for effective solutions. Identifying it helps to drive smart strategy - revealing what you should do, amongst all the things you could do - and in turn, this focus inspires compelling creativity.

What makes getting to the right question so hard is that starting out on the journey towards an answer, you don’t always know it’s the one you need to ask. That’s why asking and answering those hard questions is at the heart of everything we do.

Unilever

"I like that the team is enthusiastic and invested into our brand becoming a success, that makes a big difference in the briefing and design process. I've worked with them when I was part of a big FMCG company and when starting on my own brand, Little Blossom, and they have brought the same passion and expertise to both projects."
