For some businesses, an in-house marketing and design team just makes more sense than relying on agencies for every small request. However, sometimes your in-house team may not have the capacity, skills, or creativity needed to complete your projects.
We can support your in-house teams by working collaboratively with them, filling in the gaps and supporting their development – we call it Blended Teams™.
We’re here when you need us, and you can turn us off when you don’t.
Supporting on special projects that require specific skill sets, such as rebrands and websites.
Supporting on sensitive projects, such as during scale up, or confidential employee communications.
Covering capacity issues, such as staff holidays, absences, seasonal peaks or quick turnaround projects.
Injecting creativity into the team, through collaborative working or workshops.
Working with in-house leaders to develop processes and improve the quality of output.
Efficiency training for in-house teams, including scheduling and deadline management, quality control and proofing, and version control.
Mentoring in-house leaders and creatives, away from their busy environments.
Supporting and nurturing in-house team development.
Upskilling in-house teams with technical skills training and best practices.
“We have really enjoyed working with the Something Big team. Your guys definitely pushed the boundaries with some of the initial concepts! We had a really good experience with Something Big.
From a cost perspective, having an in-house team has meant we can be more responsive, flexible to changing demands and make limited budgets go further, but that gives us wiggle room to bring in creative support for big projects. This can be to bolster the team with additional skill-sets, help us manage peak workload periods, or when there is a particular project and we want some bigger picture support.”

“We think that a blended approach of an in-house team and outsourced agency resource works really well.
That way, we have access to specialist agency expertise and an impartial eye that we would not ordinarily have in-house together with a responsive internal team who live and breathe the brand.”
