Hart & Jones delivers beautiful, powerful and effective design without black boxes, ‘gut feel’ or drama queens. We understand better than any other agency why brands look the way they do and exactly what that look is really saying. By using semiotics to unlock the cultural codes that drive consumer choice, we create cut through messages - impactful, appealing, unexplored ways to communicate.
Process doesn’t make great design, people do. From great insights we build great design - sparking off each other, searching, building. Sometimes the best idea is in the junior’s throwaway joke, sometimes it’s in an all nighter in front of the computer. And sometimes you find it on the back of a camel. Over the past 4 years Hart and Jones have steadily built a fun, dynamic, inquisitive, creative team around them. Who all share a passion for design.
Hart & Jones is a young company built on years of experience, working on the biggest brands all over the world. Whether it’s insecticides in Argentina, snacks in London or toothpaste all over the globe, what we do is make your brand’s point of difference clear. And not only clear, but easy, even natural to choose. Much of this is about creativity and crafting, but it’s also about making the message fit with the way the wider culture is moving. That’s where the semiotics come in - understanding why certain signs and symbols resonate and why others don’t. And because semioticians, designers and strategists work together from the start, the work is always beautiful and practical.
