Not only did they both have Wind in the Willows surnames, but they shared a vision: to develop a purpose-driven business that drives a positive impact. So they launched Fox + Hare, a consultancy that would serve brands ready to make sustainability a priority, and support them on the journey. The key to its success would be the combination of sustainability strategy and award-winning creative. Lots of businesses were investing in good initiatives, but lacked the mouthpiece to shout about them.
Our founders have a collective 30 years’ experience consulting at some of the biggest agencies in the world, working on cross-sector accounts ranging from start-ups to FTSE 100s. Back then it was all hastily executed CSR programmes created by non-specialist agencies. But now conscious new consumers, investors and employees demand more.
Creating purposeful work and doing it right was what appealed to Ben and Craig the most and they slowly found that some of the best talent in the industry felt the same. The result? A team of like-minded sustainability specialists and world-class creatives focused on producing work that matters.
Every day Ben and Craig ensure that Fox + Hare set the bar high, walk the talk and genuinely give a sh*t.
We care. A lot. We put our absolute all into every project, every client, every time. And we care about each other, treating every colleague with respect.
We set the bar high. The work we do is best-in-class. And when a member of our team has gone above and beyond, we reward them, big style.
Passion is a part of our methodology. We fall in love with every project we work on, and give our team space and freedom to express themselves.
We trade on credibility. We do the right thing, stand to our word and always follow through on our priorities.
