Introductions first – we are James Ford and Sam Williams and we’re partners in Barley Communications. In 2016, we decided to set out on our own, having worked together at big agencies for over ten years.
Above all, we wanted to make a difference on issues that matter to us. We saw an opportunity to create a new kind of agency – smart, agile and with a clear focus on maximizing the impact we achieve for our clients. An agency full of bright, energetic people, using the latest technology and flexible working practices – keeping overheads low and passing that benefit on to our clients.
When you work with Barley, we want you to be able to say that:
- Barley is good to work with – that we act with integrity and operate in a transparent way
- Barley delivers – the quality is high and we add value through our insights, advice and creativity
- You benefit from big agency thinking at boutique prices
And what’s in a name? Why Barley? Well, it’s wholesome, honest, versatile and felt like a good representation of the kind of agency we wanted to create – one firmly rooted in straightforward integrity.
We’d love to meet you and discuss how we can help you reach your goals.
