  • Agency description
  • We are Swordfish Advertising! …A fully integrated pharmaceutical and veterinary healthcare advertising agency.

    We know that building an effective brand shouldn’t be stressful. Don’t get us wrong; it takes blood, sweat & tears. The best campaigns always do! But we take a lot of pride in translating that behind-the-scenes effort into a seamless experience for our clients. It’s all about the process, and at Swordfish there is no superfluous. Our clients get straightforward, jargon free, no nonsense.

    Swordfish is an agency that delivers the perfect balance of strategy and creative built on a deep and powerful understanding of patient and HCP drivers. We use insight to best advantage to ensure our marketing solutions answer the real needs of the customers we target. Our Agency offers the full range of marketing communication activities across all areas of healthcare. Whether our clients’ need a mobile app or a global brand campaign, we take the initial brief through to an effective, persuasive result that is optimised for every channel and driven by award-winning creativity to engage the target audience.

    We have a dedicated, full service digital department made up of the best minds in digital & technology. We source these market-leading individuals from consumer & B2B digital agencies which through experience of doing so, combined with an agency remit of attending non-pharma/consumer/B2B expos, means that we are able to suggest, recommend and deliver innovative technology solutions which are cutting edge, pulling tomorrow's thinking in the world of digital in to our discipline and applying it within the pharmaceutical industry…. And in this day and age, never has this type of thinking been more important in order to reach and communicate with the relevant audience.

    So whether you’re looking for the right agency to launch your new brand campaign, or even just disgruntled with the service you’re currently receiving, get in touch and we’ll be happy to talk you through your next marketing challenge.
