Who We Are

We’re a design-led creative agency committed to helping brands communicate.
Let’s tell your story.

Based in London, we’re a group of creatives, innovative thinkers, designers, directors, animators and motionographers with a shared passion for making effective, inspiring, award-winning work.

Our forward-thinking, nimble way of working means we’re set up to meet your needs today, tomorrow and into the future. Technology, communications and your business are all evolving, but we’re always ready for change.

What We Believe

Great work can educate, inspire, empower and move people. That’s what we believe here at HelloYes, and that’s the kind of work we’re here to deliver for our clients and their customers.

We love doing what we do and we know how lucky we are. We spend our days telling playful, powerful stories, solving problems, staying curious, being endlessly inventive and seeking out creative excellence.

Want to know a little more? We’re smart and skilled. We’re innovative and committed. We’re professional and approachable. And we love having a laugh.

We’d love to hear about you too. So go on, say hello.

Brilliant design has the power to create real, positive change.
It’s also a lot of fun.

Our Network

It’s never been more important to stay flexible and keep evolving, hour by hour and day by day.

Digital is transforming almost everything about the way we live. It’s shaping how us humans work, play and interact, right across the world. But plenty of brands and agencies struggle to keep up with all this change, especially when they cling to traditional models and processes.

We do things differently. Our new, fearless way of working enables us to respond quickly, think fluidly and constantly shape-shift—all to get the most compelling, creative, effective work out the door, on time, every time.

Led by our highly skilled core team, HelloYes is surrounded by a network of trusted creative partners at the top of their game. So we can stay light, nimble and focused, and tool up with the industry’s most talented people in an instant. We select a tailormade, all-star team for every project, whilst keeping costly overheads, bureaucracy and other shenanigans at bay.

At HelloYes, no day is the same. We’re constantly fuelled by fresh thinking. And most importantly, our clients get to reach their full potential. This is what growth and progress mean to us. We can’t wait to share it with you.

The Core Team

Together, our core team and network possess a broad range of skillsets, allowing us to step up to all sorts of briefs, and fulfill and further the potential of our clients’ brands. What unites these diverse talents? Our big three: brand, content, and motion.

Edward Dalton

Founding Partner

From creating the global on-air branding for FIFA World Cup to directing a complete brand refresh for BBC Knowledge, Ed has worked with scores of top brands across many international markets.

Ed is a problem solver and the right kind of perfectionist, usually found hunting down original creative solutions. Oh, and his commute is approximately 30 seconds long.

BEN MARSHALL

Founding Partner

Ben’s a brand specialist. After cutting his teeth at celebrated branding agency English & Pockett, he’s spent over ten years working with global names including the BBC, FIFA, Eurosport, CNBC, The Financial Times, Yahoo and LG.

Ben balances an easygoing nature with razor-sharp focus and attention to detail.

Our Culture

All work and no play is a recipe for a dull creative product. But when you create an environment where learning, experimentation, aspiration and passion are constantly encouraged, great things happen. It’s so much more fun that way too. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Getting the balance right is a skill in itself. We work obscenely hard in pursuit of creative excellence, and we know how important it is to make time for life outside the studio too. You’ve got to be in the world to create work that speaks to it.

When we’re not in the throes of concepting or crafting, you’ll find us out and about at a gallery, eavesdropping on conversations in a cafe, kicking a ball about, or just enjoying a drink in the sunshine.

The world is waking up to what we’ve always believed: inspiring work starts with happy, healthy people.

Studio Life

We’ve optimised our environment for creativity. And newts.

A calm, comfortable working environment away from the stresses and distractions of everyday life is most people’s dream. But it’s our reality. In our studio, we can think freely, try out new ideas, and focus harder than we ever thought possible. That leads to brilliant work that makes our clients grin. Win-win.

Our studio—or “the garden shed” as we like to call it—is nestled amongst trees and other leafy green foliage in an idyllic patch of North London. There’s even a pond, complete with resident newts.

We love our tranquil spot, but it’s comforting to know the hustle and bustle of central is just a hop, skip and a jump away. And that means it’s easy to visit us too.

So go on, pop in.

Clients

It’s an honour to tell a brand’s story, and one we never take lightly. Our success goes hand in hand with the success of our clients—we’re committed to working together to nurture that growth, now and into the future.

Few designers are as good as these guys.
Their response to a brief is deeply thought through and always finds the sweet spot.
The process is collaborative and the results deliver, not just in terms of execution excellence, but in creating solutions that have impact and communicate effectively.
Beautiful and memorable creative that says Hello and Yes!

I would highly recommend working with Helloyes. We had a last minute brief that we needed to turn around quickly. The team at Helloyes worked really efficiently with us on a tight schedule to ensure we hit our deadline, while delivering great quality piece of work.

It was a pleasure working with the chaps over at Helloyes. They delivered what was needed and to a very high standard. I know they put in a lot of time and effort but for us it seemed effortlessly and nothing was a problem.
