Based near Birmingham and founded in 1936, Gough is an independently owned, full-service, marketing agency that has been a member of the IPA since 1954.

Your World, through a human Lens.

As humans, we operate on two-hundred-thousand-year-old software, and more often than not, we’re driven by raw primal emotions, and the use of heuristics to navigate basic life.

Our world is understanding exactly that. Why people do what they do.

Your business is unique and so are the people you’re trying to reach. At Gough, we deep dive into the behavioural patterns, psychology and triggers of your target audience, crafting solutions that speak directly to their visceral motivations and needs.

The Gough Guarantee

No fluff – just results. Effectiveness is at the heart of everything we do. We stand for honesty, hard work, and being grounded in real human insights.

We’re here to help you decode your customers’ behaviours and turn that knowledge into commercial success.
