the agency

Curious. Creative. Commercial.

We are a creative marketing agency made up of a commercially astute, eclectic and challenging team.

From strategic plans to cross-channel campaigns, copywriting to web design and build, we create marketing that will deliver your business objectives.

We bring ideas to the table – some become fully-fledged marketing campaigns, others never leave the nest. But what all our ideas are founded on is our clients’ commercial objectives, because we understand business.

The team has experience of the corporate world and major brands, of the entrepreneurs’ world of start-ups and new launches and also of running their own businesses. This understanding of the clients’ business challenges means ideas are commercially and practically realistic, without compromising on creativity and innovation. We are a creative marketing agency, but the bottom line is always a priority.

The team have worked across all marketing channels, for a diverse range of brands and in a variety of markets but food and drink, automotive and sport and health are particular passions.

We want to create and deliver marketing which interrupts, inspires and provokes the consumer.

We want you to experience our work.


Marketing strategy

You need a clear marketing plan to take your business in the right direction. You need to know who to target, what you stand for, where to spend your marketing budget, when to roll out campaigns and why you are marketing.

Specific activity

You need marketing input for a specific event, campaign or promotion. You might want general ideas, particular expertise or extra resource.

Graphic design

You need design work that looks outstanding and gets results. You want designs which reflect your brand, work across all channels and put your competitors in the shade.


You need words that work. The website needs rewriting to incorporate SEO, marketing material needs writing to convert browsers into buyers or you need content for social media


You need a brand new website, an overhaul of your existing website or specific content areas need some TLC


Retainer based

If you want regular access to a marketing team, work with us on a retainer basis. You set the budget and the targets, we work like your in-house marketing resource. And we can really get under the skin of your business, allowing us to spot opportunities quicker. As a retained client you have access to the strategic, design, copywriting and on-line expertise when you need it.

Project based

For ad-hoc work and one-off projects, or to take us on a test-drive, work with us on a project basis.

The targets, measures and costs are agreed and the activity is delivered. You can use us for any of the services we offer, from strategy to copywriting.


The Forgaard Agency grew out of Anna Forgaard’s marketing consultancy business which she founded in 2014. 

As the business expanded and clients requested a wider range of marketing services, additional partners with specific skills were needed to deliver the breadth of work. There were plenty of people offering their expertise, but only a few who delivered to the creative and professional standards required.

Over the years, the roster of partners has been refined and is now a crack team of experts who are all exceptional in their knowledge, creativity and client care.

We are commercial. We keep our eye firmly on the ROI, to ensure that the business measures aren’t overshadowed by creativity.

We are truthful. Sometimes it’s not exactly what you want to hear, sometimes it negates the need for our services. But we will always tell it like is.

We pride ourselves on delivering work that exceeds expectations.
