We are Iris. A creative, strategy and innovation company that uses the power of participation to move your business forward.

We build Participation Brands.

The participation era is here - customers are in control and every brand is a step away from rejection. Businesses must urgently and continually evolve to keep up with customers’ rising expectations. Participation Brands deliver disproportionate levels of excitement, involvement, and ultimately, they outperform the competition.

We are "For the forward."

Our purpose is to excite progress for our clients, people and the wider world. We hustle to make change happen. We create visions that galvanise. We work together in exciting ways.

All to build ideas that will move a business forward. And excite true progress against problems we all face.

We harness the power of participation to create genuine leaps forward.

Our specialisms in B2C & B2B enable us to:

Create brands, products, experiences and services
Connect your offering into your audience’s lives
Convert new customers and profit potential

We mobilise diverse backgrounds and skillsets across strategy, creativity, martech, data, design and innovation to remove barriers to Participation at every stage of the customer journey.

Our Participation Brand Index tool helps us identify the interventions that will have disproportionate commercial impact.

We have 6 offices in North America including Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, New York, San Francisco, and Toronto.
