A guide to Formation’s #BleedGreen culture.
Our values, our way, our people.
Formation is its team; a team committed and driven to supporting and facilitating business growth, both for our clients and for Formation.
Professional in all matters, the Formation team is fueled by the challenges of promoting our varied clients. We place the highest priority on building lasting relationships with our clients, based on mutual trust and respect.

Revolution begins at home. Formation specialises in delivering business revolutions, we are award-winning, accredited and proven to push boundaries in all that we do. We have a desire to be the best, and have a reputation to boot; something we have worked hard to build and continue to maintain.
Formation is proactive, not reactive. We continually challenge the status quo and find new ways to approach evolving issues. By taking a flexible approach, we are able to constantly improve, never making the same mistake twice. Our cross-sector client portfolio allows us to apply a broad scope of wisdom to each challenge we face. The ambitious small client is our next big client.
We function on the principle of mutual respect; within the team and with our clients. We are proud of what we have achieved and encourage growth in ourselves and others. We support our local community and engage with the businesses around us through our networking and training opportunities.
We are hardworking and dedicated to the Formation values which we all sign. If team members lose focus, we redirect them, reminding them of the common goal we share. We understand our clients’ needs, confident we are able to foster growth by debating required change and challenging what we feel could be improved.
Formation is based upon a culture of passion, with trust, honesty and respect at the core of our work. A career with Formation represents a commitment to something bigger than the individual, embarking on a journey of personal and professional growth, with one goal in mind: success.
We push boundaries in everything we do, from design to strategy. We always strive to be the best, supporting clients by producing the highest quality of work possible. If we think there is an opportunity to do something a better way, we’ll do it.
Stronger than just a team, a mismatched family of creatives from all backgrounds. This brings not only an incredible level of working integrity but also a huge variety of approaches and perspectives, enhancing the work we produce.
…for our teammates, for our clients. We take ourselves and our clients above and beyond! This mindset of development and training combined, with collective and individual hard work, will carry Formation to the next level.
Complexity is the enemy of usability. We design and construct our services based on you and your customer and not the next fad. We know better than anyone that design is about more than aesthetics, we don’t just produce visually stunning collateral, we produce visually stunning collateral that works.
At Formation, ego is the enemy. Our work isn’t part of some self-promotion trip, we do it because we love it and because we thrive on watching clients grow.
Our solutions are based on what we know will help your end-user, not our favourite colour.
Formation is one of just a handful of UK creative agencies with an ISO 9001:2015 certification. This process standard drives our entire approach, allowing for optimum workflow and a guarantee of quality every time.
…and get stuck in! If there’s fire in your belly, then welcome to our studio! We are winners. We show grit, determination and a deep-set desire to be at the cutting edge of our industry.
Honesty is the best policy – speak your mind and say what you are thinking. Just because it has always been done that way, it doesn’t mean that is the best way. We’re open to change!
Formation is nothing without its people, who live and breath the brand every day. Our #BleedGreen culture is everywhere, from our custom t-shirts to the way we present ourselves to clients.
We don’t ask for permission. We’re daring and prefer to try something different in order to make things happen. We learn from our mistakes in a bid to be the best
The more we put in, the more we get out and hard work is rewarded accordingly. However, we also let our hair down once in a while with a team quiz day, or an after-work Friday beer at our local! Oh, and did we mention? Our team get their birthday off!
