About ilk Agency

Combining skills. Growing brands.  

Individual projects can be brilliant, but we believe things get really special when you put different skill-sets together; when brands are able to communicate with their audiences in multiple ways across multiple channels; when creative thought breeds ROI.    

And that’s what we offer. It’s not about a creative response, or a PR response, or a digital response. It’s simply the bespoke response your company needs, in whatever combination you need it.

It's been fantastic to work alongside ilk in launching a revolutionary new plant-based brand into the market. I heavily rely on their support and professionalism to enhance our marketing communications, and they have definitely done so with helping us launch a meat-free revelation into the marketplace.

We were really impressed with ilk from the moment they pitched for the project. They clearly understood the importance and objectives of the campaign and had some innovative and creative ways to ensure we are able to reach the parents and children who stand to benefit most from the programme. Throughout thecampaign thequality of their work has been excellent and we have seen some great results with more children participating in the summer holiday activities.

The Generation Logistics campaign has been brought to life by ilk Agency. Their creativity, reactivity, proactivity and personality have ensured that an idea has become a fully-fledged awareness campaign that the sector can be proud of.
Alex Robinson - Strategy Manager
I've worked with ilk on a number of occasions and they have always exceeded targets set out at the beginning of the campaign, whether it has been promoting a commercial product or running a campaign for an NGO to raise awareness around important issues. We've worked with ilk across PPC campaigns and also social media channel management where they have always delivered great results across both disciplines.
