We create brands and content that people love

With an emphasis on craft, humanity, and optimism, we deliver:

  • Brand transformation

    We transform brands to regain momentum. Vault49 has worked with brands to deliver pivotal changes in their positioning and has helped brands that no longer resonate to successfully recruit the next generationof consumers.

  • Brand Innovation

    We help determine competitive innovation pipelines that deliver on emerging consumer needs. Spanning from strategic brand extensions through to disruptive out-of-category opportunities, we aim to maximize recruitment and build brand salience.

  • Brand expression

    We develop content for the next generation of consumers, across the next generation of media platforms. Our multi-disciplinaryskill-set enables us to work across platforms, deliveringon the variety of content needed for today's wide-reaching campaigns.

Our process builds relationships between brands, people, and the things that bring them joy

Vault49 Creative Labs are a platform for exploration, discovery and communication for many different audiences.

Creative Labs

The origins of Vault49 are from within a ‘Creative Lab’ environment and we continue to integrate this stimulating, highly engaging and original process throughout all aspects of our work.

Our DNA as craftspeople uniquely positions us to provide authentic and exciting Creative Lab experiences that communicate a brand’s vision of creative inspiration to its various audiences: internal, trade, and consumers.

As example, we recently hosted a Creative Lab for our friends at Diageo where we explored various ways to bring to life gifting ideas for Baileys. We facilitated workshops and hosted art-making sessions to explore tactile solutions around various brand touchpoints, resulting in a three-year pipeline for packaging, seasonal gifting, retail and large scale activation for Baileys.

We have also delivered consumer-focused Creative Lab solutions for clients in London, Berlin, Rio, Seoul, and across the US.

Whether it’s a closed set or an event, Vault49 Creative Labs are an authentic, interactive, exciting way to communicate a brand’s essence of creative inspiration.

We strongly believe in the power of design in driving business performance.  

Vault49’s Creative Lab for Baileys delivered a three-year ideas pipeline, in a remarkably resource efficient and exciting way -  not to mention being great fun for all of our brand team.
