How we work
When we set up Stafford Long + Partners, we did it with a simple aim: gather a concentrated team of experts who love what they do and believe in working openly, honestly and supportively. We like to work with clients who share this collaborative philosophy – because, as our experience has proved, that’s when the best work happens.
We do everything for the love of it
We’re a fully independent agency in every sense. We have no external shareholders or parent company to answer to. So we’re free to focus on what we love: doing inventive and exciting work.
We’re enormously inquisitive
Staying ahead of the curve is important to us. We write regular white papers exploring and analysing the key trends in our market and how to harness them. Our freedom means we can react quickly to explore new areas of the market, invest in changes to our business and bring in the very best specialist talent .It also means we can take a step back and come up with ideas that buck (and better) industry trends.
A lot of pride, care and passion goes into what we do. As an agency, we work hard to make sure we never let our clients down – balancing the heady thrills of creativity with the security of robust project management and quality assurance. That’s why many clients are so loyal; in fact, a lot of our growth comes from existing contacts who simply want to work with us more.
We’re good to have around
When all is said and done, we’d like to be seen as a group of people you trust, enjoy spending time with, and actively want to listen to. We take care to get to know our clients’ business, solve their challenges by working together and become an extension of their team. Equally, we get involved in good causes wherever and whenever we can, whether that’s through volunteering or pro bono projects.
