About Elephant Creative

It really gets Elephant Creative cross when they go to organisations and they tell them some of the work they’ve had consultants doing for them. What is it? As soon as you decide to go freelance you have to start speaking a foreign language? It’s all about producing a nice smart looking document, with lots of diagrams and acronyms and then leaving the client to get on with it.

Elephant Creative was set up in 2004 to draw a line in the sand and to do things rather differently. Yes, there was a need for marketing and business development consultancy… but it didn’t seem to come in a plain English, common-sense format.

Elephant Creative is a network of marketing, PR and business experts, specialising in the professional services and education sectors. Working in both the UK and USA, every associate is chosen because they are a genuine expert in what they do and have a totally practical approach to doing it. We don’t want you to think of us as consultants… we're all a part of your organisation.

We had a great example set by a law firm client and discovered the B Corp 'revolution' from them. It struck a chord and we wanted to join in.

Elephant Creative believes in doing business the right way - and in helping clients to do the same. We want to use our skills, organisational structure and collaborative approach to make a difference in the way business is done and grown in the UK. Being a B Corp helps us do that.

The Change We Seek®

Elephant Creative wants the business world to think about the impact it's having, through its choices and decisions, as well as its bottom line. They'd like social and environmental responsibility to be a fundamental building block for every business - big or small.

What makes us a better company?
