We do ‘agency’ differently. No egos, no working your people to burnout, no getting stuck in sector ruts. Just a collaborative, creative model that delivers communications that are authentic, relevant and remarkable.

Why Perq? It comes from the Italian ‘perquisire’ (to search diligently) and the English ‘perk’ (to make lively) and it sums up what we do. We use strategic thinking to find what makes your audience tick and design brands and campaigns that set their world on fire.

We’re passionate about giving back and work pro bono to support good causes close to our hearts. We’re committed to making a difference and work with brands that share our commitment to making the world a better place.

We’re small but mighty  – a ‘creative powerhouse with boutique service’, as one of our clients once called us. Commercial, creative, intelligent and inspirational, our talented tribe harness the power of communication to change the world.
