About

A creative communications agency built on the power 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 90 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.

They fully understand our complex business, understand the pressures we are working through and find opportunities to go above and beyond to help us get through this.

I really don't know where we would be without them."
