Onyx works differently.

We are an eclectic, agile team of experts. It takes many cogs to create a smooth-running machine. This is the basis of the Onyx structure, in which senior experts slot in to adaptable teams to best suit the needs of a client or project. But you will always have one person in charge of ensuring you get the results that your organisation needs.

Each of us directs the business in our specialism, while connecting with other team members in a supporting role across other projects.

We have an office base in London’s Soho, but we’ve found that the best people don’t always live in commuting distance, or want to work from an office. As a result we have a regional and US presence that gives us a broader perspective that we believe is essential to great comms.

Our core team is below, but you may meet other experts who are leaders in their field and we know can deliver the best results.
