OUR MISSION

We are a creative business that works hand in hand with brands and the next generation to build the future better.

 

ABOUT LIVITY

We are living through the greatest uncertainty of our lifetimes. But it’s not a blip – it’s the new reality of constant disruption. And the next generation are putting on notice the brands and institutions who don’t play their part in making it better.

 

For 21 years, we’ve worked side by side with young people. Our deep understanding of how the next generation think, feel and act enables us to best understand how our clients can play a meaningful role in their lives. By continuously investing in our network, we spot cultural and societal trends ahead of the curve. By collaborating at every stage or research, creative development, production and distribution, our work is more authentic for our audience, and more effective for our clients.

 

Purpose-driven before the term was coined, we proudly measure our social impact as rigorously as our commercial success.

 

OUR WORK

Clients come to do work they’ve never done before, earn their place in youth culture, and make meaningful contributions to the world’s biggest issues.

 

We never make the same thing twice. We base all our work on deep insight from the audience and challenge our clients to create a solution. From pure play Consultancy, through to global content and social comms to programmes, products and service design, we make whatever solves the problem.
