WE'RE A FULL SERVICE CREATIVE AGENCY

We like to listen to people's problems and think of ways we can help to resolve them. This might be with a simple off-the-shelf service, but it's often more likely to be a more complex solution that draws on all our talents and knowledge.

We don't like to be pigeon-holed into discrete services, because that's not really how we work. The spheres of expertise in our creative team overlap in so many complicated and wonderful ways. None of us has a job title or job description. We just have a collection of things we love to do.

If what you're looking for isn't listed on our website, we might still be able to help you. Book a free 1-hour chat to talk about your specific needs.

For the resource-starved marketing manager, Rusty Monkey emboldens organisations to be brave, entertaining and different by providing a holistic approach to brand development through creative and technical solutions.

You're wearing too many hats. You're time-starved, under-resourced and struggling for budget. You want to make your organisation successful, but you just don't have the time / money / knowledge (delete as applicable).

Whatever your situation, we understand - and we can help.

We have a diverse range of skills, and we can slot into your organisation wherever you need us. Whether that's for ongoing support, or a one-off project.

Great team of creative talent here. Always take the time to listen and understand what you want from the project, are adaptable and responsive throughout and exceed expectations with delivery.

-- Carrie Cartwright-Owen, CDA

Very professional, very inspiring, supportive and shared so much value to improve my business. I highly recommend them.

-- Nathalie Wakim O'Riordan

Some selected projects. Browse our portfolio for more.

We created this simple but effective motion graphic animation to introduce Gravita's new product, Straple. The goal was to demonstrate the top level benefits of the product using an inspiring soundbed and eyecatching animation. The animation was used to launch Straple to the global market.

An exciting project to create a brand for this new restaurant and bar in Notting Hill, capturing the essence of a destination venue, which combines retro themes with the chic and metropolitan vibes of this iconic area in London. With sleek typography and a muted palette, we created a canvas upon which eclectic layers of cultural aesthetics can be built.

How much will it cost?

We understand you'd like to know how much something is going to cost before you get too committed.

The best way for us to scope and value your project is to discover the following things:

  • What’s your goal? What are you trying to achieve? 

  • What’s your budget? How much do you have to spend?

  • Who are your audiences? Who are you trying to target?

  • What value do you want the results to bring? How will this improve your business?

Knowing this will put us in a much better position to propose a solution that will work for you, and also one that your company can afford and that will bring you the most value.

If you’d like to talk about the costs of your project, get in touch.

How long will the work take?

Every project is different, so we can't tell you the answer until we know more.

We’ll always work with you to develop a plan that will allow you to meet your deadlines.

If your deadline is tied to a wider timeline of things, we can work with you to coordinate our services better.

We run our projects using Agile and Waterfall project management methodologies, which allow us to scope into the future, but also to react quickly when things need to change.

I have a small budget. Can you help me?

If we can, we will. We love helping start-ups and small independent businesses, but we understand that you probably don't have a lot of cash in the bank.

Let us know how much you can afford, and we'll work something out. Whether that's a retainer of a few hours per week, a mini project to hit your goals, or simply a referal to a freelancer we trust, we will do our best to set you on the right path.

For an initial one hour consultation, we charge zero, zip, nada.

I love you. How do I leave a review?

Thanks so much, we love you too! You can leave us a review on our Google Business page here.

What are your values and goals?

To create an agency built on friendships and an unrelenting desire for us all to have influence and create things with meaning.

We aim to be a place that gives young people great opportunities, a place to follow some kind of dream and purpose. We would always love that to be within the agency, but it could be a place to bring together passionate young people who want to create friendships, find their creative or technical passion and then act as a springboard for their preferred destiny.

A culture that collaborates and heavily embraces everything new. We want to be a business where we can be our true selves and all have influence.

How many people work at Rusty Monkey?

We are about 15 experts in creative and technical nerdery. We may grow to about 25. We don’t want to be any bigger than that. We want to remain small enough to be agile and responsive, and feel like a family.

How did Rusty Monkey get its name?

When Russ and Matt first started the company they were developing their own game about a futuristic abandoned theme park previously run by rebellious monkey robots - now all broken and rusty. This is a game they would still like to make one day. 

It stands for the ambition of two young guys trying to forge their way in the world, learning technology and doing something fun on their own. 

We are resilient. Hard working. Some of us are getting a bit old and rusty. But we are all intelligent, sometimes rebellious and some kind of beautiful.

Who are your customers?

Mostly business owners and/or marketing managers. We work with a range of different organisations, from big multi-national companies down to independent chocolate makers. 

Our best customers are people who have a budget, a goal and a purpose. People who need an agency to fill the gaps in their own business.

We focus on helping people that are trying to do something good*.

*Good means they have sustainable goals (ideally a B-Corp); they are non-exploitative (of their staff, the public, their supply chain, etc); and they are invested in improving the happiness and wellbeing of their team and their customers.

This might look like (but is not restricted to) organisations in the following sectors:

  • Charity                            

  • Healthcare                            

  • Not-for-profit                            

  • Leisure

  • 
Education

  • Manufacturing


  • Retail

What services do you offer?

On paper, our service list is as follows:

  • Branding

  • Workshops

  • Web design

  • Ecommerce

  • Online marketing

  • Animation

  • Video

  • Photography

  • Graphics & illustration

In reality, we like to listen to people's problems and think of ways we can help to resolve them. This might be with a simple off-the-shelf service, but it's often more likely to be a more complex solution that draws on all our talents and knowledge.

We don't like to be pigeon-holed into discrete services, because that's not really how we work. Our spheres of expertise overlap in so many complicated and wonderful ways. None of us has a job title or job description. We just have a collection of things we love to do.
