A real warm welcome
Us in one word. Real.
It’s rooted in the DNA of our agency. Transparency and honesty are the common ground we all share. And we want to make a real difference. Leaving the agency, and industry, in a better place than we found it. Championed by our People Team, our commitment to diversity and equality is ongoing. With the very real goal of making the company a more inclusive place.
IMA first opened in 1988. HOME in 2002.
Both became successful. Regionally, then globally. Growing in London, New York and Sydney amongst other worldwide locations.
Two became one
IMA became part of Advantage Smollan in 2017. The same group acquired HOME in 2021. Our merger created one of the largest agencies in the UK. Like-minded people. Shared goals. A perfect cultural fit.
It's not about us
What we do
With key services across strategy, creative and digital, we continue to evolve and expand. This is reflected in the mix of clients working with us across our complete offer.
