What we do

We work collaboratively with our clients to help them achieve extraordinary things. We do this by developing an understanding of their current and future objectives. We then function as an extension of our clients’ marketing and technological departments giving them access to increased knowledge, capability and expertise.

Our vision

As a digital business, constantly finding ways to innovate is important - something we call ‘owning the edge’. To help achieve this, we created YoungShand Labs; a place where our people study, play and prototype to figure out if something new is also something our clients should consider trying.

We employ the 70:20:10 methodology to turn our learnings into action. This means that 70% of a client’s activity is familiar work, the next 20% is taking the familiar and applying it in some new way, and the final 10% is where we try something completely new.

Our philosophy

The process we use to help our clients achieve genuine digital transformation is based on a model we call The Path To Digital Maturity. Put simply, it assesses a client’s current digital footprint, then defines what infrastructure and/or activities are required to move them further along the path. If you find the digital landscape a confusing and fragmented place then The Path To Digital Maturity will make things much, much clearer.

Our values

YoungShand might be a creative digital agency, but we very much consider ourselves to be a people business. Our values are something we work and live by, and the environment we foster is one where our people are supported and have the chance to develop and grow. Specifically, our core values are:

Passion, Innovation, Collaboration, Transparency.
