The Agency

HeyHuman was launched in 2014, built on a new way of thinking and working as an agency.

We believe in growing Human Brands through changing behaviours. Human Brands understand that the relationship between people and brands have changed and that they need to think and behave differently to grow. They put people first to make these new connections and unlock new ways into growth through NPD, re-positioning, re-connecting and creating more effective ideas and content.

Through our MindKind™ approach we help brands grow by thinking differently about people, brands and marketing. We tap into the new relationships people have with brands, focus on behaviours and use neuroscience to develop content differently in brand, social and experiential communications.

HeyHuman won the Drum Business Transformation award at the end of 2018, recognition of what we had achieved since launching in 2014.
