At the Uncanny Valley we don't simply market brands or make nice stuff. We build audiences, we turn customers into fans, we create a distinct voice and a unique aesthetic for the companies and the very nice people we work with. We are The UV Collective, a new breed of creative agency.
The UV is a collective of experienced editors, writers, videographers, photographers, designers, and digital influencers, peppered with the best in up-and-coming creative talent. We are award-winning creatives working directly for your brand, with no mark-up, no costly middlemen, no corporate peacocking, keeping our prices sensible and fair.
Our collective have worked on, contribute to and provide some of the creative juice to the biggest editorial products and brands on the planet: Vice, The Guardian, Shortlist, Time Warner, Redwood, Elle, FHM, Hackett, Bauer Media, Guinness, Men's Fitness, Men's Health, The Times, and more.
We provide the strategic thinking, creativity and content for brands to tell their unique story, and to reach their audience and customers with genuinely engaging editorial (like dogs in hats). Our collective, with their journalistic background, are experts in storytelling - presenting information in a unique way and appropriately crafted for each channel.
Every man, his dog, and internet-savvy cat claim to make content but we think we're different, and in a thoroughly good way. At The UV our senior team of award-winning writers, editors and designers work directly with clients. We never seek to charm you with elaborate decks and fancy PowerPoints only to push the work onto junior team-members. You work with the best, and we'll always come to you.
There's a swear jar in our office for anyone that utters buzzwords without good reason. Content marketing and social media are plagued by pointless stats and jargon designed to confuse and ultimately blind clients into paying more. We believe the best content and smartest strategy can be explained simply and concisely.
The old ways of working are dead, hooray! No more months spent on wasteful meetings and high charges as a result. We believe modern content and the fast pace of social media demand fast (and good) ideas, produced at fair and sensible rates, where the client sees exactly what they get for their budget.
Helping brands define and refine their positioning, core messaging, and personality. Our background is in magazines renowned for their clear, authoritative and engaging identity and voice, and that’s exactly what we create for our partner brands.
With the brand aesthetic and tone of voice agreed, we provide a clear vision and actionable strategy to bring this to life across all channels. A playbook, anyone can follow - whether that’s us or your in-house team - to build consistency across your brand from social media content to email signatures.
No one is more skilled or experienced in this field than us. We are experts in turning a catalogue or marketing bumph into must-read, high-end print content. We produce magazines, newspapers, advertorials... anything beautiful, useful and on paper.
We have exceptional track record of honing content for online and social, to drive engagement, drive traffic, and turn customers into fans. We can set you up to produce your own great content, or take the sweat out and do it for you.
We specialise in connecting brands with influencers and high profile talent. We aim to build long-term relationships focused on collaborating on creative content rather than a pay-per-post churn.
