Our story so far

WHO WE ARE

Weirdo is an independent agency founded in 2020 by Louis Persent and Michelle Yeadon. Our aim is to make creative advertising that’s inclusive, representative and shakes up an industry that’s become  too safe and predictable.

We work with ambitious brands that have a heart. We strive to help create the brands that the future deserves and our current clients are disruptors in the lifestyle, tech and creator space. We’re new and growing, so we’re looking for talented individuals to join our small team.

We are passionate advocates for fairness and equality in advertising and our own experiences have made us resolute in our efforts to build a more responsible and respectful kind of creative company. We welcome applications from all candidates and encourage those from BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ backgrounds to apply. We value attitude, courage and work ethic as much as skills and experience.

WHAT WE DO

There are two parts to Weirdo – our community platform and our agency. 

We believe original creative work comes from diverse voices working together, and our unique working model ensures we are inclusive by design. Co-creation is fundamental to our approach, fueled by diverse voices through our community platform.

Strategic agency expertise spanning creative and media is more important than ever. Our team delivers campaigns, content production, design, branding, strategies, media planning, testing and measurement alongside co-creation with our diverse network.

HOW WE WORK

  • We are uncompromisingly future focused
  • We are inspired by the diversity and creativity of audiences

  • We are all about the detail
  • We teach and learn from each other new things every day
  • We are the best at what we do
