  • We've worked closely with Holdens over the last couple of years to completely overhaul our brand and marketing strategy and activity. The results have been outstanding. We've consistently exceeded sales targets, increased market share and taken new product launches to another level.

    Dean Plant, Director — SWI Group

  • Holdens' approach was methodical and tenacious, with no aspect of the work being too much trouble. Ted is a friendly and honest individual whose effective management of the project ensured all requirements were met. We continue to use Holdens on a regular basis.

    Wendy Drinkwater — Manchester United

  • Holdens are a great creative agency. Their work in the early days of MOFILM was inspirational. They can understand a brief and provide creative breakthrough's in a way that builds lasting brand equity.

    Jeffrey Merrihue, Executive Chairman & Co-Founder — MOFILM

  • Holdens have been a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They have worked closely with us to help us articulate our core vision. At each and every stage, they have approached the project with creativity, passion, professionalism and commitment. I wouldn’t hesitate for one moment in heartily recommending Holdens.

    Adam Quayle, Artistic Director — Box of Tricks

  • First: it’s not supposed to be enjoyable! This was, the 6th website I’ve been tasked with (from universities to theatres) and it was, by some way, the most structured, focussed and purposeful process of them all. Far from being stressful, it was a pleasure.

    We’ve been up for a few weeks now and the reaction (internally and from punters) has been universally positive. I’d have no problem recommending Holdens to anyone looking for an agency to handle their online projects.

    John Morton, Head of Marketing and Business Development — New Vic Theatre
