Our guiding principles

We stand against bland

This is not about blending in. Success comes from embracing authenticity, daring to stand out, and being the most interesting brand in the room.

We think elastically

By cultivating imagination, innovation and intuition, we inject more creativity and differentiation into our work and challenge the status quo.

We bring creative energy

Our collaborative process creates stakeholder buy-in from the start and generates belief, confidence and pride in the whole team.

We contribute to change

Our work has purpose as we help our clients to grow market share, save lives, protect our planet, build the future and improve society.

Feel good factor

The brands we develop create a positive emotional response. Emotions significantly shape decision making.

The emotions experienced are a combination of conscious and subconscious feelings. However, the effort we dedicate to creating a compelling brand experience is a deliberate and strategic process. We will collaborate with you to effectively convey the genuine emotion in your brand story, enabling you to attract and connect with the right talent, customers, and investors.

Aww shucks

Our clients, from many different sectors and parts of the world, say some very lovely things about the process of working with the elastic band - and the results they see.

"We ended up with branding which was much more authentic to our company than we’d had before, packaging which elevated our product and presented it cleverly and gorgeously, and a beautiful website which has had loads of brilliant feedback ever since!"

“The Elastic team are a powerhouse of creativity, professionalism, they understand what is happening culturally and how a business can tap into that. Having worked with various marketing companies for many years I have found them exceptional. Challenging the status quo, recommending change at the foundation - in order to harness greater strength of brand - Elastic were bold and saw things from the customers’ perspective.”
