Proudly based in Bristol, UK

A lovely marketing agency for creative, indie brands

Supporting small businesses since 2016
Smart, creative, kind

A small creative business,
for small creative businesses

Time. Money. Creativity. When you run an indie brand, there’s only so much to go around – and it never seems to be quite enough.

Our Bristol-based marketing agency delivers brand, web and marketing services that are effective, efficient and friendly, so that you can spend more time running the small creative business of your dreams.

Independent, enthusiastic, and ready to grow?

We work with all sorts of wonderful independent small businesses in Bristol, the South West, and across the UK.

Our niche is helping entrepreneurs who share our drive for business success - without compromising on kindness, patience, and a hint or two (or three) of whimsy.

Sellers and retailers

Engaging customers and driving sales, whether you're outgrowing Etsy or a shopkeeper on one of our magnificent local high streets.

Creators and designers

Photographers, illustrators, artists, writers and more. We'll help you to profit from your creativity with sensible, straightforward support.

Wellbeing and communities

Adding more niceness to individuals and communities is our number one priority. We want to help you make the world better by reaching the right audience.

Weddings and events

It's extra tricky to grow a business when your buyers and only buying for a short period of time. We'll help you make the most of limited selling windows.

Food brands and vendors

We just really freakin' love yummy food, and want to support you in selling more deliciousness so that we can eat more too.

Practitioners and supporters

We're a small creative business that loves growing small creative businesses that support small creative businesses.

Working with Studio Cotton to build our website was an absolute blast! We have had so much positive feedback on the website and our online store, and we love it too.

Excellent delivery, fun and relaxed. Aime is very generous with her knowledge and cuts through all the unnecessary info you think you should be doing. I came away feeling clearer and confident to be able to optimise my website myself. A great workshop with added delicious cakes and refreshments!

I was getting very confused and overwhelmed with using MailChimp, but Aime helped me to understand the different settings I needed for my business. Aime’s the bomb!

We blog. A lot.

We love to share great advice on branding, websites, marketing and running a successful small, creative business.
