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 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.

"In 2019 we kept Cogent on a retained basis to support SEO improvements and to provide best practice guidance to our global web team, following an SEO audit of the UK content which provided a comprehensive, fast and well planned approach to improve our SEO. This is now yielding results and, as a result, Cogent has been bought in to provide guidance and designs on a global basis across our industry practices and to our corporate team. They have also delivered targeted, multi-channel digital programs supporting strategic initiatives utilizing PPC, Google Ads and Social, ensuring the media budget is fully optimized so we get more bang for our buck. The team are a pleasure to work with - I find them very knowledgeable and up to date in terms of innovation and changes within the industry."


"Our experience with Cogent has been nothing but positive. We engaged them initially to help us create and develop a new brand, but have since given them the vast majority of our creative work. They have a great team throughout. I couldn't recommend them highly enough."
