In this new climate, much has been spoken of the importance of community; something intrinsically linked with co-working. This week’s launch of the TMRW Collective, a digital and creative agency built specifically for a time of economic survival, is the perfect example of co-working and community in action.
A selection of members from TMRW, South London’s number one digital and tech co-working community, have banded together during the COVID-19 crisis to be able to offer an agency service like no-other. These independent digital and creative experts have formed the TMRW Collective to combine their respective strengths and skill sets and ultimately, to ensure their collective survival.
With such a unique set up, the TMRW Collective offers clients several distinctive benefits. First and foremost is the fact that its very survival depends entirely on the quality of work it delivers. The survival instinct is a powerful one which ensures creative thinking and the exceeding of expectations. Secondly, the unusual set up means a diverse mix of experienced experts are brought on to each project to fully utilise their combined skill sets. Thirdly, having set up specifically in a time of crisis, the TMRW Collective is acutely aware of the pressures on businesses and is able to deliver outstanding value for money. It offers a full-service delivery without an expensive retainer, an agile team who are already optimised for remote working, rapid project turnaround and flexibility to work with all budgets.
Another distinguishing characteristic of this agency is the Corporate Social Responsibility opportunity it provides clients. By hiring a collective of creative independents who have lost work due to the crisis, organisations who opt to work with the TMRW Collective are doing their part in supporting the small business community. We can’t all work on the front-line, but we can all do our bit because; “It’s on all of us”.
The TMRW Collective includes: Dazzle Communications (Communications Consultant), Entente Process (Business Development and Project Management), Fifty Fathoms (Design Illustration & Branding Consultancy, Jamie Pitt (Video Producer and Director), Laura Sawyer (Stylist, Art Director and Creative Consultant), Minno (Full Service Marketing for Start Ups and SMEs), Rise Media (All Inclusive Video Production), Vie Digital (Business Growth for Start Ups and SMEs), Winwood Haines (Creative Design Studio) and Sketchology (Graphic Recording and Facilitation).
Social distancing and self-isolation mean businesses need to embrace digital more than ever before. The TMRW Collective works with organisations so they can successfully operate in the digital sphere, keep customers engaged in an overcrowded digital space and use creative marketing that resonates with the current landscape, is sympathetic to the collective situation and which creates a positive brand perception.
Francois Mazoudier, Founder of TMRW, explains: “We’ve always said TMRW isn’t just a place where you can get a desk and wifi. We’ve consistently helped businesses during their exciting growth phase; with funding, staffing and commercial expansion but we have also provided support during the hard times. We’re proud to have instigated this new project which is now being self-managed by community members and to be able to open up our contact network to help them with this innovative agency concept.”
