Our story.

From humble beginnings.

We were founded in 2009, by Ben and Sam Garrity, to help very small businesses capitalise on the arrival of digital media.

Being a self funded start-up, it was the humblest of starts, with a life or death feel about it.

Their first sales remain among their career highlights so far; Ben fell off his chair in an MOT garage pitch (it literally fell apart) and Sam presented on the dashboard of a builders van on-site. This is when they knew RocketMill was going to work, and when they invested in our first office - a single room that was so small you had to ask the colleague next to you to shuffle out in order to exit it (they bought desks that were too big).

To one of the UK's leading independent agencies.

Today, with some wrong turns and many proud moments en route, we are one of the largest independent agencies in the UK, working with a host of like-minded, incredible brands.

But much more importantly, we are surrounded by wonderful people.

An agency is nothing more than its people.
Their talent defines our success.
Their behaviour defines our culture.

That’s why our philosophy is to put people first.

Putting people first.

People First reflects our beliefs both internally and externally.

Internally – we believe in shared value, not shareholder value.

We know that if we inspire, educate, be transparent, trust, and share the spoils with our staff, that they will do the finest work of their careers for our clients.

Our clients respond with loyalty and we grow together. Profit is the result of this. It’s the result of doing everything else right.

Externally – we prioritise the customer of our client. We know that creating value for your business starts with creating value for your people, your customers.

We enrich the experience your audience has with you.

Ultimately, our marketing puts your people first.
