We're small, fresh & nimble but packed full of experience and energy. We take a creative, user-centred and empathetic approach to everything we do.


We work with ambitious founders and established leaders. We help them go beyond the obvious, using critical and creative thinking to remove barriers and encourage curiosity that leads to growth.

We get you from where you are...

Are you missing a clear positioning? Are you unable to tell your brand story effectively? Are your social media messages lacking the social? Are your customers getting lost on your website? Are your investors not investing?

corporate -> creative

...to where you want to be

Be heard

Be recognised

Be respected

Be useful

Be buyable

Be remembered for a better experience

The Are & Be way

We like to work closely with our clients to clearly 
understand their objectives and define the heart of the problem. Together, we arrive at a solution that is sensitive to people, processes and finances. Whilst always striving to make every project beautiful and effective enough to get you where you want to be.

Listen for the details, hear the truth

Question the problem's, problem

Care about who cares

Look past the obvious, be curious

Fight for something better

Make it together

Rajen Mistry
Founder + Creative Director

Former creative director of notable B2C and B2B agencies, I have worked with a host of recognisable global brands from AstraZeneca to Center Parcs and Facebook to Johnson & Johnson and more.

Whether I'm rebranding a start-up, creating a customer experience for a scale-up or working on a product; reimagining talent acquisition for a Fortune 100 company - I take a collaborative and considered creative approach working closely with clients and colleagues.

Previous brand experience

When you've worked with a variety of brands across a range of sectors including professional & financial services, retail, automotive, travel, agriculture, healthcare and technology - the experiences stay with you.


We build on these learnings and apply them in our work.

Why choose Are & Be?

I had the pleasure of working with Rajen as he guided us through a global rebrand - including everything apart from our name and logo. The process was a monster task but ran incredibly smoothly and Rajen was a calming presence, both creatively (opening our ways of thinking along the way) and in terms of driving the project forward.
