Stop, collaborate and listen

Here at Flow we’re dedicated to getting the job done well. No, better than ‘well’ – outstandingly. And that starts with knowing and understanding what each other is working on and developing creative solutions together. But it’s not just our own team who we believe can add value to what we do. Looking further afield and collaborating with the best in the business is often the ultimate solution.

Weeks at Flow begin with a full team production meeting to run through everything you’d expect… and some. We use this time to reflect on projects and gain each other’s insight to make sure we’ve got absolutely every base covered. Our open plan working environment means that we’re not the kind of agency who only communicates via email. We talk. We share. We learn. That’s what we believe benefits our clients most.

We don’t profess to be a full service agency; instead we have excellent relationships with the best photographers, producers and directors around. Collaborating with them on a project basis means we’re able to tap into the best in the field whenever the campaign requires it, whatever the brief may be. Working with people who specialise in their own field also means they’re at the cutting edge of it, so we can bring our A game to the table together. What’s not to love?

Clients we can collaborate with are a dream to us, too. Sharing opinions and working with them drives top results as it creates a more transparent, unified approach. While the ‘them and us’ format isn’t completely redundant, we thrive via a more modern allied style.

Up and coming talent is a goldmine of fresh ideas, so we embrace our relationships with interns and work experience placements. While we *know they learn loads from coming in (*because they’ve told us) we pick up useful ideas from them, too.

Flow collaborates with Sneaky Raccoon on its not-for-profit arm, Plan Bee. Set up initially to ensure the freelance creatives of Manchester didn’t miss out on a Christmas Do, it now hosts two parties a year to showcase talent and raise money for good local causes. But it’s more than that, as it creates a space for creative peers to talk face-to-face, to bounce ideas around and to feel part of something bigger. Community is so important now more so than ever.

Designer, animator, copywriter, student, marketing manager – if you think we could collaborate, then we’d love to hear from you.
