Company Description

Overview – About Recipe

Recipe is an ad agency, one of the top 5 independent agencies in the UK. But it’s not normal.

It didn’t start in a normal way. It doesn’t make work in the normal way. And it doesn’t get normal results.

So if you’re not after normal, it’s probably the place for you.

Recipe was founded in 2004 by three people who had never worked in advertising.They came from sales, tech and production.

So Recipe was born with a focus on making friends and actually making the work they came up with. No outsourcing. No losing control. No wastage. No normal hierarchy. No egos. Nothing but team.

We build brands and create award-winning partnerships. And that is all we do. We make everything. Everything.

The old process ruins everything. It ruins relationships, it ruins the work. Not here. Not ever.

That would be far too normal.
