The clients we work with fall into 3 main groups:
Major international organisations with both national and global marketing requirements, often through multiple sales offices, channels and in multiple languages. Typically Fortune 500 or FTSE 250 companies trading across EMEA+.
Companies, often with owner managers, who have a strong or growing market position and want to improve it by being a David amongst Goliaths. Typically needing to refresh or rebrand as their business develops or elevate their marketing efforts to date.
We’ll help ambitious entrepreneurs from a standing start, guiding them through name development and early launch phases as they take their first tentative steps towards market activation.
For our clients, we develop and deliver creative ideas for B2B and B2C communications using both the direct and indirect channels and our projects typically fall into the following three activities:
Internal, external, with multiple audiences or stakeholders, we work across every kind of campaign. From strategic one-off campaigns to ‘business as usual’ marcomms launches and initiatives. These campaigns are often fully integrated but equally maybe specifically digital, advertising, internal or experiential.
Building from scratch, rebranding, evolving or establishing creative brand strategies - we create, sustain and maintain brands that connect with people and markets. Developing, activating, guarding and implementing brands to resonate with audiences and fulfil clients’ visions.
Then there are the stand alone projects such as a website, a brochure or an ad campaign. A number of clients (particularly with more sporadic marketing requirements) use us in this way, dipping in and out as the need arises. We’re equally happy with a single task as we are with multiple engagements. Every project and client is treated with equal importance.
We enjoy a whole range of collaborative working arrangements with our clients. As we get to know each other better, the more comfortably we’ll find a level of working together that suits us both. Of course longer relationships give us better insight into how we can add more value. The last project delivered is as important as the first.
Chaos Design Limited (’Chaos’) was established in 2002 and emerged out of a previous, well established agency (hence some of our client relationships going back further). Chaos merged with Roundel in 2002.
AEP and TMP are both part of the Chaos Network (set up by Chaos in 2003) - like minded collaborative agencies with whom we regularly integrate activities and projects to the benefit of all our clients and utilise the wider agency experience and expertise. In the UK we have offices in London and Guildford. Through the Chaos Network, we also have a presence in Lausanne, Switzerland through our colleagues at The Magic Pencil (TMP) and also collaborate with AEP who support our Media buying and planning activities.
Chaos is recognized in the industry as a Top 50 (Design Week 2013) Creative Agency. We’re also members of or affiliated to:
We’ve also won a number of awards (as Chaos and Roundel) over the years for both our clients and ourselves.
From D&AD Awards and Marketing Awards to industry sector awards and Pantone awards... for best brochure, identity, typography, campaign, the list goes on but it’s still clients that matter most to us.
