Our vision is to build a valuable, sustainable and independent group of businesses.
We're an integrated marketing communications agency.
We specialise in launches - one of the most stressful, exciting, terrifying and satisfying things you can do in marketing.
That’s why we love them.
We are employee communications specialists. We help companies create customer value from the inside out, bridging the gap between employee engagement, customer satisfaction and profit.
We’re a content marketing agency. We help brands plan for relevant and valuable content right across the customer journey.
When the team believes in what we're trying to do, we can be whatever we want to be. We keep it simple. Great people doing great work for great clients.
We challenge each other and our clients. Healthy conflict drives better results all round. And the best solutions are normally thrashed out in our agency bar!
From free bike locks to total transparency on the financial health of the business, everyone feels more secure when they have the whole picture.
People are encouraged to have a go, whatever the challenge. Experience builds confidence, we learn from mistakes, and always celebrate the wins!
We’re a family-run business and this spirit is at the core of the company. In our internal survey, 100% believe we treat our people fairly. Enough said.
Life’s too short not to love what you do. Even when times are tough, the banter keeps us going.
We prefer you to approach us directly because it shows the right level of initiative and desire. If you’re keen to join us then do your research and tailor your approach. We’ll happily pay for the best, and our training and development activities focus on both your short-term needs and your long-term career. We also have a very tasty online benefits package, with a great range of core benefits and lots of others to choose from.
To get the ball rolling, please contact Fran.

Mike Lawton takes the plunge and decides to set up his own advertising agency. In the office above a laundrette on Southampton High Street, Lawton Advertising is born.
The agency wins its first big account - a full colour brochure for Norwegian American Cruise Line.
Lawton Advertising is joined by a sister agency LawtonWare, specialising in recruitment advertising and HR communications.
Out go the drawing boards. In come the Apple Macs. Cue sceptical looks/blind panic from designers and typesetters.
A true landmark for any agency, Lawton Advertising secures its first £1 million account – Calor Gas.
A third agency is born - Lawton New Media, which will go on to become Lawton eMarketing and a top ten UK digital agency.
It's all change (but business as usual of course) as Mike Lawton retires and hands the reins to his sons Matt and Nick.
Online PR agency Headstream makes the leap into social media after success running 'grass roots marketing' campaigns for clients such as IBM.
Lawton Communications Group opens its London office.
Lawton goes to La-La Land. To build on success in the entertainment sector, Five by Five Los Angeles opens for business.
Headstream and Five by Five are part of the biggest entertainment launch of all time with the European social media and online advertising for Activision's Call of Duty.
LawtonWare becomes Five by Five People.
Headstream launches the first Social Brands 100 – now a highly regarded annual snapshot of social media's evolution.
Lawton Communications Group is the proud parent company of Five by Five, Five by Five People and Headstream.
Five by Five People merges with a customer insight consultancy and Dragonfish is born.
