Scaramanga has been working for over two years with business energy and water consultant Control Energy Costs. In September 2020, we launched a green campaign to promote their renewable energy offering and net zero services.
The campaign has been very successful, so we jointly decided to enter it into the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards 2021, under the Communications Agency of the Year category. We are thrilled to be shortlisted – especially as Scaramanga is the smallest agency in the shortlist!

In November 2020, Scaramanga celebrated its 20th Birthday. It has been quite a journey, so we plan to celebrate reaching this milestone. For starters we have launched this new website, but there is more to come.
The Surrey team moves to One Croydon, also known as the Fifty Pence Buidling, right in the heart of Croydon.
The Kent team moves to larger offices in Churchill Square doubling the space. Thankfully, the move was painless as the new office was just across the corridor.
To mark the merger, we created a new bold identity so everyone knows that we are here!

As a design led company, the Thoughtful team decided it was time to shout about our design credentials. In an attempt to reposition the company we rebranded and established three core messages: that we develop brands, design stuff and are experts in the web.
We took a bold minimalist approach to the identity, inspired by Japanese aesthetics.
Just like Thoughtful, Scaramanga started with a two person office and squeezed three people in, before moving to a four, and then five, person office so the proverbial cat could be swung.
A junior web developer joins, doubling the size of the team overnight.
Having spent 2 years working from home, it was time to get a small 2-person office, in which we would eventually manage to shoehorn 3 people.

After the anguish of making the decision and months of planning, It was finally time to open the metaphorical doors. Logo designed, website built, coffee made, we pushed the power button on the new computer and took the first step on our journey.
At that time, we were both based in Wimbledon, South West London. To avoid all the tennis stars and strawberry punnet wielding tourists, we would get up extremely early for a breakfast network meeting in Wimbledon High Street. Although not my [Simon] favourite activity, it was here that Claire and I first met and it would prove to be the start of a long lasting friendship.
