Who we are

We are The Clearing - an independent brand consultancy using a combination of strategic thinking and exceptional creativity to help our clients get the maximum value from their market.

We help brands including Ascot, Wimbledon, Lidl, Fitness First, Eurostar, McLaren, Breast Cancer Now and Ocado find and defend their Clear Defendable Territory - creating work that’s often award winning but always effective along the way.

We've been delighted to win DBA awards for One Feeds Two and London's Air Ambulance, as well as The Drum Network's Brand Consultancy of the Year award for two years running and over 30 industry awards.

What we do

We believe the best brands have a distinct point of view. They’re singular in their opinion, but express it in lots of different creative ways – allowing them to own a space that’s distinctly theirs.

We call this Clear Defendable Territory.

Helping businesses find their clear defendable territory is why we started The Clearing. And once we've helped you get there, we'll make sure the new place you own is perfectly understood - by staff, investors and customers alike.
