all-round creativity

We're an agency that come up with ideas. It doesn't matter if they're from the creative department, an account handler or a web developer. What matters is the ability to recognise not just a good idea, but a big idea. An idea that makes a product memorable, a service feel essential or a client into a household name.
Campaignable Ideas

Anyone can come up with an ad. But coming up with a campaign that has legs - that has an idea capable of becoming a campaign, a website, an HTML email and reach across social media is what really counts. We don't just create ads, we create launchpads.

Big Ideas

The heart of any agency should be their ideas. If your agency doesn't have many, or the ones they have are weak, start looking elsewhere. Because no amount of SEO, brand guidelines or social media outreach is going to make a bad idea take off.

Multi-Language Ideas

You already talk to a global audience, and although the majority may speak English, customers are more likely to respond if you talk their language. Effective, cross-border content requires a different way of thinking. So before you talk globally, talk to us.

Things we enjoy. Things we're good at.

who we are

Before choosing a new agency, it's useful to know if you'll enjoy working with them. Whilst there's nothing better than calling or meeting us, here are a few details to get the ball rolling.

Nikki Nutley

Account Director
Mobile 0771 3045171


Nikki has been an Account Handler for over 15 years, managing accounts ranging from hospitals to technology giants.

After completing an HND in Public Law, Nikki began a sales career at Yellow Pages where she sold advertising space in all 22 directories covered by the Hampshire head office. Nikki then lead the sales team at a local newspaper before moving on to Hall Harrison Cowley Advertising.

Having co-founded Nutley & Nutley in 2000, the agency works from offices at Ocean Village, Southampton. The business focuses on personalised marketing, advertising, and web design throughout EMEA and America. Suffering from sea sickness, Nikki will not be taking advantage of the yachts moored outside her Ocean Village window.

David Nutley
Creative Director
Mobile 07803 504343


David began his career as an Art Director at Hall Harrison Cowley, before becoming a Creative Director at Teamworks Advertising. Since 2000, he has been Creative Director at Nutley & Nutley.

He's now too old to be a professional golfer, and since the lowest his handicap got was 15, he was never good enough anyway.

David likes going to the cinema to watch anything, and enjoys the entire movie making process.

He still misses Breaking Bad, and thinks he's grown up enough to no longer be excited about the next Star Wars movie. But he's only fooling himself.
