what our clients say
Ashley Ferguson - General Manager, MeAmora
May have exceeded our expectations, we are creating some very exciting plans, from the more strategic brand positioning to more executional areas like web design and content generation.
What’s impressed me most has been how they perfectly balance the need for well thought out and validated strategic decision making with the necessity to provide pragmatic commercially impactful executions as efficiently as possible.
I would highly recommend them as partner across the full mix of marketing activities
Sonya Rance - Head of Marketing, Oxford Innovation
may are a delight to work with, the whole team really understand how Oxford Innovation and our Innovation Centres operate. They are like an extra addition to our team and provide us with great support and creative ideas to help push our projects further. Over the years may have worked with us on many website builds (26 and counting!), but also on copy, online design, and SEO work. Projects are always approached with enthusiasm and a focus to deliver on time and within an agreed budget. We highly recommend the fabulous team of may.
Ben Ford - Founder, Blink
We have been working with may since the launch of our challenger brand. The team are passionate, insightful and are always on hand to help. From eye-catching packaging to engaging print and digital materials, they take time to understand our briefs and deliver fresh, creative ideas that bring our brand personality to life and create a unique experience for our customers. They’re not afraid to challenge our thinking and work with us as an extension of our team.
Debbie Hunt - General Manager, CME
I imagined marketing companies as somewhat scary, perhaps pushy and with ideas beyond our budget and ability. This all changed once I met may. They've been so much more than just a marketing agency. We'd reached crossroads in knowing the way forward. may worked patiently with us to draw out our identity and direction. They've offered support with copy, catalogues, newsletters, branding and trained us in social media. They are unfailingly professional and down to earth – a true partnership where they feel like colleagues in our company.
Natasha Bryant - Senior Brand Manager, Butcher's Pet Care
What I love about may is that I feel like I’m working with someone from the Butcher’s family. They know and understand our brand which is so important for us. They always present creative ideas and deliver great campaigns!
Sarah Ludden-Roughley- Founder, INICIO
may are everything you need in a marketing team but nothing that you'd expect. Personable, friendly and warm yet savvy, intuitive and talented; it really feels as though they are on your side and under your skin! They quickly learnt what would work for us and our unique set up and, most importantly of all, they held their hands up when an idea didn't work for us and instantly looked at other options. A real breath of fresh air and a true pleasure to work with!
Nicole Arkless - Education Development Co-ordinator, Bamboozle
Having may design and build our new website has been a truly positive process. They took time at the beginning of the project to fully understand our company and what we wanted to communicate. They helped us through the process of organising our info into a user-focused structure. The site has easy to use CMS and we're getting lots of positive feedback. We couldn’t be happier and may made the whole process easy for us!
