Smart, Creative,
& Kind

Bristolians in business

We’re a terribly selfish marketing agency really.

We only work with clients, brands and projects that really excite our small team of passionate small-business supporters.

And we prioritise to our company values: smart, creative, and kind.

Smart

Pragmatic and logical to almost a fault, we meticulously identify opportunities to maximise our clients return on investment.

Creative

We’re incredibly proud to be an innovative small business marketing agency.

Tacking challenges, solving problems, making something where there was once nothing. That’s our jam.

Kind

Running a small business is really. Freaking. Hard. We know more than many, as most of our team members run their own business too.

Every project comes with big sploosh of kindness and a whole heap of emotional generosity, because we are truly, genuinely there for you.

Totes social social media

Our founder Aime has a very unhealthy relationship with social media. The upside is that we invest way too much time and expertise into sharing original helpful content.

We hope we can convince you to follow Studio Cotton, and we promise there will be no blurry PowerPoints, quirky office dogs,  or obligatory Christmas jumpers.
