Alive With Ideas

Alive With Ideas is a creative agency where bold ideas, passionate people, and dazzling design come together to create something special.

Alive gets to know people – not ‘clients’ – and likes to understand how they take their coffee, as well as how they like their comms.

Alive With Ideas has worked with a range of organisations, from the British Red Cross and various NHS Trusts to Ocado, NATS, and KP Snacks.

Whether it’s getting to the bottom of an internal communications challenge, or launching an award-winning external recruitment campaign, Alive loves nothing more than supporting people to achieve the outcomes they're after.

Inside the Company

Alive With Ideas came to life when two friends – Alan and Alex – wanted to make work a better place for themselves and others who joined.

Now with bold, inspired, and supportive team members by their side, literally and virtually, this mission has never wavered.

Based in Basingstoke, clad with yellow sofas, rubber ducks, and of course Winston their fluffy four-legged friend, Alive HQ is where positive vibes and artistic flair meet.

Mission and Values

To sum up its mighty team, Alive With Ideas often uses this famous statement from Freddie Mercury: "We are misfits who don't belong together, playing for other misfits. To the outcasts right in the back of the room, who are pretty sure they don't belong either. We belong to them."

Alive is a happy and inclusive environment where diversity of thought, creativity, and clever communication thrive.

The three fundamental reasons Alive exists are to create great work with great people, to make work a better experience, and to enjoy what they do and to bring balance to work and life.

Culture and Benefits

Alive puts people first, always.

It knows when to have each other's backs, and when to crack a joke at one another’s expense.

Whether it’s raiding the onsite beer fridge, going to a life drawing class, or having a darts tournament, there’s no denying that Alive With Ideas is exceeding its goal to create an inspiring and sociable working environment where everyone feels they belong.

Entry-Level Opportunities

Alive is passionate about learning and development and sharing knowledge and ideas.

They’ve welcomed people during their year in the industry, who have since returned to become a permanent part of the team.

They’re also supporting team members to pursue diplomas, master's degrees, and various creative courses in animation and video.

In addition, some of the team deliver workshops and training at comms events and others run creative sessions at colleges and universities.

Up-and-coming talent will find endless opportunities to collaborate, learn and showcase their skills at Alive With Ideas.
