Based in East London and with a team across Europe, their unique methods of hand-crafted multi-lingual influencer campaigns achieve Cost Per Engagements that are 7 x lower than the industry standard. Clients like The North Face, Head, Debenhams, Pepe Jeans, and Brooks England have recently joined the roost, and they’re growing their team, so get in touch!


Alongside This Here, Jemima has founded a sustainable social enterprise that is using the internet to revolutionise Britain’s Forestry sector. Launching later this year fromonethingwell.uk(and seeking investment in 2019), the platform will enable everyday individuals to buy timber from UK woodlands, rather than choosing the carbon costly imports on the shelves of DIY retailers, predominantly imported from places like Brazil and China where illegal forestry is rife.
