How Do We Do It?

We employ an inverted advertising agency model, where the artists are the stars at the top of the pyramid, and we provide strategy, creative and business support at the bottom.

For our network of artists we collaborate on strategic insight, account management, business management and production; enabling them to maximize their artistic and business potential. To our artist partners our maxim is ‘We’ve got your back’ letting you get on with what you do best. For our agency and company clients we provide bleeding edge creative solutions and marketing innovation. Ultimately, we make beautiful things in a commercial environment that engage consumers, build brands and sell products.

In 2012, Satellite Office launched a sister company, &Reach, promoting up & coming young-gun creative talents.
