About Badge

We are a creative marketing agency that builds engaging and participatory experiences for brands and organisations.

Our work is playful, curious, challenging and disruptive.

If you’re brave enough we can help your company change the way it connects with audiences on the deepest level. We take inspiration from the stories you have to tell and create tailor made experiences that take your audiences on a journey, placing them at the centre of the story.

 

So what does that actually mean?

What it means?

We will push your boundaries. What we make could be digital, playful, theatrical or social. In the past we’ve made an epic urban adventure game in the streets of Cardiff, a site specific storytelling app for cycle routes in Wales and an online interactive event for new opera audiences.

We might make something you’d never imagined, but these sorts of experiences can change the perception of your brand and generate long lasting interest and discussion enabling you to engage new followers.

So far we have worked with Welsh National Opera, Sustrans Cymru, National Library of Wales, Sinfonia Cymru, Cardiff University, TaikaBox, Design Commission for Wales, The Welsh Language Commission and National Theatre Wales.

Who we are?

Alison is the producer at yello brick and most recently she has been responsible for producing BORDERGAME for National Theatre Wales.

Over the last few years other highlights have included producing our BAFTA Games Commended multiplatform game REVERIE and Google’s ‘Getting Welsh Business Online’ campaign in Wales’ capital Cardiff. She has produced yello brick’s client based work alongside the company’s self-produced work. Alison has a background in theatre and after a period of working in the industry she moved into event management and producing and honed her skills with a variety of companies. She is recognised as one of a cohort of digital producers practicing in Wales by Watershed, National Theatre Wales and Arts Council of Wales.

Julian is the creative director at yello brick. Co-founder of the award winning brand strategy company, Hoffi (which he still is a director). Julian regularly talks on branding and brand as experience.

He is also co-creator of thinkARK a social design volunteer group which develop events and projects to highlight issues within society. More recently he has created a series of pervasive games with long time collaborator Alison John (producer of yello brick), which have gained recognition for their strength of narrative and immersive nature.
