TRUTH ABOVE ALL

We’re called True for a reason.

Truth in advertising.

It’s a potent weapon. It gets attention. It generates fame for the brands we work with. It creates relevance and competitive advantage. We dare to tell the truth. It sticks. It jolts. It makes people think. It makes people remember. And most importantly, it unites brands with their customers.

Truth Above All
  • MAKE IT MEMORABLE
    When we first opened our doors in 2012, we won a Grand Prix for a campaign featuring the elephant in the room. He represents our ethos of working tirelessly to unearth powerful human truths and bringing them to life in memorable ways that engage and excite business audiences.
  • LIVE BY THE NAME
    Our name is our philosophy, so we are dedicated to the truth here. The true promise of a brand. The true human emotions that our advertising touches. Advertising doesn’t work unless we make meaningful contact with the audience. And the most powerful way to do that is through truth.
  • EVERYTHING IS ADVERTISING
    We’re a B2B advertising agency with a difference. We classify advertising as “anything that makes our clients famous”. Whether that’s a 24ft elephant sculpture or something we cannot even conceive yet, this simple ethos means we encourage and foster thinking that stretches beyond the norms.
  • HUMAN IN EVERYTHING WE DO
    We’re living through a technological revolution that is erasing the boundaries between professional business buyers and the consumer purchaser. True brings consumer thinking to professional audiences across every channel with creative flair.
  • THE BEST IDEA WINS
    Our close-knit and eclectic creative culture encourages good ideas to come from anywhere. We don’t care if they come from a designer, an account exec, or even an Uber driver. By always being open to good thinking, we push and inspire one and other to conceive the best answers.
  • A POLICY OF TRUTH
    The truth can hurt, but it can also heal. That’s why we have a guilt-free truth policy. We believe in being transparent with each other and our clients. Telling and receiving the truth guides us all to continuous improvement.
