Flamingo is an insight and strategy agency, but that doesn’t really describe the business we’re in…

We’re in the opportunity business: making connections, nurturing ideas, unlocking potential

We aim to inspire everyone who works with us with a sense of the possible, and how to achieve it

Since we began, we’ve applied our unique cultural lens to an incredibly diverse range of brand and innovation challenges

  • Flamingo is a great partner. We have never met anyone who so intuitively understands our business and brand. We like the smart use of new tools and techniques, and the way of thinking. adidas is All In for Flamingo

    Senior Manager Global Consumer Insight
    Adidas

  • We asked Flamingo to come and talk to BBH teams around the world about what characterises great Levi’s advertising, drawing on their many years of experience of our work. Their presentation was so profound in its understanding and so vivid in its expression that I found it truly mesmerising. These people understood our own creativity better than we understood it ourselves

  • More than ever, we need our insight agencies to open up our cultural horizons, to challenge our assumptions and hypotheses and to initiate new conversations with fresh stimulating content. Flamingo (Unilever’s Agency of the Year) embodies this new spirit

  • I want to thank you and your team for the exceptional work you led on Aquafina. We are thrilled with it. The work is shaping every aspect of the brand’s future expression – from graphics to advertising to innovation, and is creating a new runway for growth. We cannot thank you enough for the collaborative, A-team treatment we got. Your team is exceptional and it shows in the work

  • Flamingo provided richly valuable input to the Guinness Global Brand Team and our two creative agencies every step of the way. Their profound cultural and consumer insights, and clear strategic thinking, provided the platform for us and our key agency partners to create a unique and compelling brand idea which has gained enormous traction across the business and is yielding fantastic output

  • David Ogilvy famously wrote that more and more people seemed to be using research as a drunkard uses a lamp post - for support, rather than for illumination. So if you’re looking for support, I wouldn’t bother with Flamingo. They’re opinionated. They’ll tell you what they think. And their intelligence and candor might mess up what you had in mind. But if you’re a business looking for illumination, Flamingo is a great partner. The people at Flamingo are just plain different - they’re bright, but they also have a natural curiosity about the world around them. Their thinking is smart yet they are still very grounded in giving a business useful insights - insights that can really help a business build their brands. I couldn’t recommend them more
