CHI was created 10 years ago by three partners, Simon Clemmow & Johnny Hornby & Charles Inge. It was a familiar advertising triumvirate; planner, suit and creative; and though we say it ourselves, it worked pretty well.
 
Yet over these last ten years, huge shifts have taken place in our industry. Media fragmentation and complexity continue to accelerate. The digital revolution has transformed not only the ways consumers interact with brands but the ways teams are structured, ideas are generated and agencies
are remunerated.
 
So the world is a more complicated place and demands a more sophisticated kind of agency: more fluid and versatile, applying holistic communications expertise to clients' commercial challenges.
 
It is a world where collaboration and partnership are key, where seamlessly integrated, multi-faceted ideas are essential and where campaigns are co-created with consumers and partners. It is the world of &.
 
BIG IDEA
 
Marketing history over the last fifty years has seen a succession of approaches to Big Idea hunting: first, the search for the product truth or 'USP'; then, with growing commoditisation, the quest for consumer insight; next, as brands cultivated their values or leader's ethos, the answer lay in company culture; finally, as businesses coveted 'new market space' the Big Idea became their vision or corporate ambition.
 
COLLABORATION
 
We even find a brand's Big Idea using the power of &. Our process for getting to Big Ideas involves open and honest collaboration between clients, agency and partners. Our Big Ideas days bring together clients from every part of the organization to build shared ownership of big, business changing ideas which are rapidly tested, optimized and expanded. It's a process that can use the power of & to the full, in that it's at its best when done collaboratively with clients, partners and consumers.
 
INCLUSIVENESS
 
There is no more inclusive a word in the English language than '&'. And inclusivity lies at the heart of everything we make for our client partners. We believe in the power of populist, 360-degree Big Ideas that make people want to be part of the brands we work with. Whether it’s getting the people of Britain singing along for the Talk Talk X-Factor sponsorship idents or downloading their copy of The Sunday Times on an iPad, we judge everything we do on whether it captures people’s hearts and imaginations, and influences their behaviour. That's the power of &.
