Having opened its doors as recently as last August, new Macclesfield full service marketing agency House has quickly become home to some significant new business.

From a standing start, House has grown into a team of ten in just nine months, having attracted business from Cookson, the world leader in jewellery supplies, leading independent jeweller Green and Benz and organic French wine label Tour de Belfort.

Led by a team of seasoned ex-JWT, Mc Canns and TBWA Manchester and Saatchis and DDB London professionals, House’s refreshingly honest and down to earth approach, coupled with insightful strategic thinking and cut-through creative have proved an appealing combination for clients weary of blue sky rooms and corporate waffle.  More information can be found at

Explains House MD Christine Colbert, ‘All of the principals here at House have left the industry at one time or another over the years. One way or another we all felt the same in that many agencies have become very process driven, whereas it used to just be about producing great advertising, building brands and shifting product. It was very refreshing for me to find like minded people with excellent pedigrees who felt the same. For a long time I thought it was just me. So it seemed a natural fit for us to open an agency based on some really straightforward principals with a very honest and simple approach.

Here at House we actually have a glossary of corporate jargon, terms we’re not allowed to use with clients or anywhere around the agency.  In fact, we even have a pair of bull’s horns in our boardroom which anyone coming out with any bull in a meeting has to wear!’

And the name? Christine again: ‘Well, we see ourselves as a kind of refuge, a home if you like, for those clients, and industry professionals who see things the way we do: that we’re here to do a job for our clients through exceptional and original thinking rather than getting them to pay through the nose for time-consuming processes and impressive-sounding and jargon-ridden strategic presentations that fail to deliver the end result.

‘In other words, we’re one agency that tells it like it is. And you wouldn’t believe the way that clients breathe an almost audible sigh of relief when they see the way we approach things’.

    These wines make an excellent accompaniment to the main course
    of a meal such as steak or spaghetti Bolognese. And,
    as such, must originate from the Combalou caves of Rochefort-sur-Soulzon.
    Travelers staying in Paris are but a short drive away.
