Who are Jackanory?
We are storytellers who believe in the power of stories to engage people through unique and memorable experiences. We believe if you get the story right, that story will be shared, told and told again, making brands and businesses iconic in our daily lives. We constantly strive for less agency red tape, less waffle and a little more magic.
What we do:
Jackanory was founded in early 2014 by Lucy Gillions and Jo Curtis. After working in various ‘big’ agency environments for over a decade, they found themselves slowly slipping into a pool of cynicism, constantly wading through agency red tape and sitting in seemingly endless meetings. They believed there had to be a better way of working – not only for them, but for their clients too.
With this in mind, they began their own agency journey and founded Jackanory. Their vision was to create an agency that enabled them to fulfil their passion for telling brand stories through unique events and experiences, all with bags of fun at their core. They felt strongly that an agency with less red tape, less waffle and a little more magic would enable them to be far more flexible and cost-effective for their clients.
As Jackanory grows, every member of staff is determined to maintain the original vision, ensuring that we, as well as our clients have a whole lot of fun as we move into the next chapters of our agency story.
To date, we’re proud to have created success stories for Brown Forman, Hyundai, Mitie, Elizabeth Arden, Swatch, Bacardi, Heineken, Hamburg Convention Bureau and Google, to name but a few.
We provide experiential marketing, live events, pure production, staffing.
