We are Team Absolute...
There’s no denying that – just like those other agencies – we do all know our stuff. (We would, though, wouldn’t we? We’ve got degrees and everything.) No, we think what sets us apart is the other stuff: not so much what we’ve learnt as what we are: empathetic, imaginative, approachable.
For example, when you hear us repeat the mantra that we listen to our clients, do feel free to look deep into our eyes. Measure our pulse. Check our palms for sweat if you must. Because it’s all true: we actually mean it. Listening properly means not imposing outcomes; we suggest options instead, and plenty of them. And a client will listen to options if they come from an agency considered a partner in a joint endeavour. That’s not a status you achieve if you only know design, you need to understand people, too.
But once a client does see you as a partner, the benefits of mutual trust flow. The client relaxes and – confident they have the best help available – wastes far less time on project-managing and non-specific fretting. We get to relax, too, which means freedom to challenge and be honest, to suggest high-quality design solutions which transform homes.
Perhaps we needn’t add – but will anyway – that working in the South West matters. We choose to be here. We love the life and – although the provable science might elude us – we have no doubt that being here gives our work a dimension it would lack were we based in, say, Basingstoke or Daventry. (No disrespect to either, obviously.)
So that’s what we do, and here’s where we are: Absolute established in 1991, grown from box-room start-up to comprehensive design consultancy with seven on the payroll.
We work closely with our clients and they benefit from our uncompromising creativity, whether we’re working in 2D, 3D or digitally.
