Up, Up & Away

Seagulls represent the freedom of unrestricted space - a metaphor for the way we think about solving the issues of our clients and indeed about life itself.

Seagulls are sociable birds and have an advanced repertoire of communication which includes a range of vocalisations and body movements. They learn, remember and are innovative. They use their excellent vision to pinpoint their next target. In fact seagulls are so successful they are found all over the world, cleverly adapting to the local environment.

So many communications companies settle for pictures of press cuttings or client logos – fine in themselves but it doesn't say much about their philosophy. Stratton & Reekie is refreshingly different, and our clients value our ability not to be restricted by a narrow brief or the four walls of our office.
