Leo Burnett London is a Top 5 integrated agency in the UK.
WE DON'T MAKE BRANDS FAMOUS, WE MAKE BRANDS POPULAR: We work with some of the nation's most-loved brands: brands that are a part of people's everyday life. The long-standing relationships that we have with clients such as McDonald's (28 years), P&G (42 years) and Kellogg's (45 years) are testament to both our understanding of their consumers and the popularity that we create for their brands.
For us, there's no greater goal than to take each of our clients' brands and put them in a position of popularity by making them a part of the fabric of real people's lives.
POPULARITY BEGINS AND ENDS WITH BEHAVIOUR CHANGE: People and their behaviour are what we study obsessively. We focus on understanding the behaviour we are trying to change and we then ask ourselves, 'What is the best thing we can say or do to change it?' By constantly asking ourselves this question we can create an enduring popularity for a brand.
POPULARITY REQUIRES PURPOSE: It's simple really. If a brand has a clear sense of purpose and a reason for existing [beyond making money], then it has something that drives everything that the brand says and does. We develop a purpose for a client because we believe that brands need to change agenda to succeed. They need to be driven, restless and actionable with a sense of how the world should be.
POPULARITY REQUIRES SCALE: And we don't mean a big media spend. We like working with clients big and small who have the ambition to one day become enormous. We like to create work that's one size too big for the brand, work that a brand can grow into and that will appeal to more than just the immediate target audience.
We are the Leo Burnett Group. Every client comes to us with their own unique challenge and, whatever that challenge, we look to shape the solution accordingly, regardless of channel.
