who we work with

What they said…

“OceanBarefoot care. They are an agency that truly invested themselves in our business.

They didn’t just say they were part of our team, they really became part of our team and had the same passion as we did to create cut-through for our brand. They shared our appetite for differentiation, to modernise the brand and have it stand for something extra, beyond our competitors.

Their attention to detail and dedication to deliver exceptional output is what makes them different. I have used many agencies and some are good and some not so, but with OceanBarefoot, we got Jerry McGuire – they cared, it was personal.

Where we wanted to go they advised and counselled, they brought simplicity and clarity to our total approach. And they were there every step of the way ensuring that what they designed was delivered beyond our expectations.”

Laurence Hamilton, ex-SVP Decision Solutions, Equifax Inc


“…Breathe, relax, calm yourself and listen to the reassuring voice that is OceanBarefoot….. who focus on making a customer, not a sale….who listens, understands and delivers technologically rich solutions that are simple and easy to use.

So if you want a firm that values a customer-centric approach thanks to great people and clever technology, the answer is quite simple…. it’s OceanBarefoot!”

Chris Buer, Marketing Manager, LIIBA


“…if you’d rather be working with a very talented and creative bunch of professionals who won’t waste your time or money and will deliver a high-quality product within a sensible agreed timeframe, then give the misfits at OceanBarefoot a call…”

Jeff Ward, ex-Managing Director, Ebix

“Thanks very much for all your hard work over the last months. Ocean_Barefoot’s research and presentation have driven the direction we’re going in.”

Alasdair Stewart, Marketing & Communications Director, AXA Insurance


“We’ve really enjoyed working with the OB crew and hopefully we can work together again.

Thanks again for your excellent level of support in helping us to arrive at the end conclusion of the value proposition work.”

Philip Naughton, Senior Marketing Manager, AXA Insurance


“I’m very proud of our new LMG website, thank you OceanBarefoot for great project delivery.”

Benedict Reid, CEO, London Market Group


“The team at OceanBarefoot have been absolutely invaluable to QinetiQ. We asked for key creative and strategic support in planning one of the world’s largest defence events. The OB team engaged with us brilliantly, rolling up their sleeves, getting stuck and in meeting many key people across our business.

They brought sound commercial sense to bear, managed engagement brilliantly and recommended an innovative method of delivering high-quality content. They then ensured this was implemented at breakneck speed to a magnificent effect. The challenge they had would scare off many agencies but they were undaunted and, despite huge pressures, managed it all in a calm, efficient manner.

We are delighted with the result and will continue our relationship on an on-going basis. I’d have no hesitation in recommending them to any other good business.”

Group Head of Marketing, QinetiQ
