An independent full service creative marketing and communications company building cultural value for big brands.
Founded by Leila Fataar in August 2017, Platform13 was created to answer the challenges faced by big brands in the fast-moving creative and cultural landscape, from our London office or remotely.
Platform13 is not an ‘agency’, or a ‘consultancy’ — we don’t play by those old world rules.
WE FLEX & MOVE AT THE SPEED OF CULTURE: From inception, we were built to rapidly adapt client plans according to what’s happening in the world.
WE SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF ENTREPRENEURIAL, CORPORATE & CULTURE: Our small but perfectly formed core team of veterans means we know what you need and how to deliver it, both externally and internally.
WE CURATE THE TEAM TO SUIT: Each project team is curated using our extensive network to perfectly match the needs of your brief. The team is selected according to category, community and culture ensuring that any ideas and plans are embedded with relevance and resonance from the beginning.
WE WORK BY OUTPUT NOT TIME: All of our approaches are scalable and transparent, tailored to deliver maximum impact that’s achievable for your budget.
Culture is how we communicate, how we behave and what influences us. It's living, breathing and changes all the time.
Reading and analysing the signs culture and the world pivots and shifts, to flex and adpat brand plans swiftly and efficiently (in a way that makes sense for that brand), is how we keep our clients relevant.
We are in a time of radical transformation: politically, socially, culturally and technologically. Consumers want and expect brands to be more than the product or service being sold - it needs to make sense, to add value, earning their place in the culture or community they want to be part of.
That doesn’t always have to be worthy. For us, positive impact comes in many forms. But it does mean respectful collaboration with the people who represent, create and shape culture from grassroots all the way up.
These people make up our global personal 20-year network of visionaries, game-changers, technologists, instigators, agitators, thinkers, doers, fixers, experimenters, inventors and multidiscipline visual creatives.
We call these people cultural voices.
