At Capsule, our agile and unified approach is the key to the performance of our team. We are a dynamic group of individuals and as such, provide dynamic results. Meet the people who bring projects to life for organisations around the world.
As the marketing landscape had changed dramatically and continues to do so, Managing Director Simon Isaac felt that the 10 year anniversary of Zero Above was the perfect opportunity to refresh the brand and services.
Capsule Marketing was developed enabling the agency to evolve with a range of new services, whilst exploring the brand and what it meant to their clients.
In the 10 years that Zero Above was trading the team had seen a huge change in how marketing was conducted. Capsule Marketing was the culmination of months of research into these key questions. Capsule Marketing evolved to offer a unique portfolio of pioneering new services, such as up to 6K video production, social listening technologies, a really sharp hand picked tech stack and qualified UX and UI designers.
The whole team played a part in the new brand, from identity creation to new website technology development to a sophisticated launch marketing strategy.
Simon’s vision for Capsule continues to be an ever evolving range of services, a growing team, delivering exceptional results for our clients. Working with brands and organisations focused on creating a better future for people and our planet.
Capsule people are creatives, problem solvers and data geeks. A collection of innovators, storytellers and performance winners. We are all loyal to our clients, their goals and in return, they are loyal to us. We thrive on this relationship-centric culture for our joint growth and success.
