Cogent are an integrated marketing agency creating simple and effective ideas through our ethos of togetherness.


Working together makes great things happen.


Lennon and McCartney.

Nike & Apple.

An orchestra.

Cheese and pickle.

A bee colony...


All examples where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

And none better than our stripey, honey-producing friends. When you approach the world the way bees do two plus two really can equal five. That's why they're an inspiration to us in the way we work.


We call it Togetherness.


It's who we are, it's what we do and we know it produces better results for our clients' business. Which after all, is why we exist.


There are 70 of us at Cogent, including the normal creative, strategic and technology bods, but also a brewer, economist, hip hop journalist, racing driver, crossword setter, tattoo artist, mountaineer, tap dancer, barrister, track girl, violinist, yacht broker, Lord of the realm and even a lollipop man to name just a few! It's that diversity we believe helps us come at things from unexpected angles, bringing the energy it takes to solve the unsolvable.


Alongside our top 20 clients we also partner with another 61 agencies. So we make a huge point of being easy to work with.


We only work with clients that let us look under the bonnet and understand that working closely produces results. We can't do what we do at arm's length.

"Hugely personable team (full of normal, lovely people!) with smart insight and strong strategic vision. Timeline and results driven with a focus on our business' needs and challenges. All projects have substance and a clear ROI."


"Cogent feel like a partner, rather than an agency, and I think they represent great value for money. They're really creative and they have also started to deliver some digital projects for us too, which have been brilliant."
