We love talking shop, and believe the best work always starts with just that. Open, honest, enthusiastic and passionate conversations about the thing that interests you the most. If you’d like to kick off a conversation, we’d love to hear from you.
ShopTalk London started with a pub conversation after work. One of hundreds of conversations where we found ourselves talking shop.
Those conversations have taken us on some amazing adventures, from part-owning a pub in Mayfair to the international terminal at SFO, to wearing hard hats planning exciting new start-up projects.
We love the entrepreneurial spirit and surround ourselves with people who have it in abundance. Whether you’re a start-up, a challenger or an industry giant looking to spark a change, we’d love to start a conversation. Let’s talk.
James & Paul
We believe creative thinking should apply to the process and our relationship with our clients as much as it should the final output. This allows us to be business partners, consultants, suppliers, in-house or out of house, or just offer some advice for now. No more and no less than our clients need.
Strategy & Positioning
Storytelling & Tone of Voice
Logotypes & Brand Marks

We don’t believe great creativity and results come from only specialising in one format or one channel. Our approach is to balance real, in-depth knowledge of the specific channel & format required, with a wide experience of brands and channels outside of that field. This ensures all work is feasible, but also constantly progressing & improving, taking influence from many other sources.
We deliberately try to keep a wide portfolio of channels and industries, to ensure we don’t become a stale supplier. But instead an efficient, progressive and challenging creative partner.
ShopTalk London was founded by James Wood and Paul Ferry. Between them they have over 20 years’ experience in large London creative agencies, James on the creative side, and Paul on the management and strategy side. This experience has seen them working with a wide range of global brands on their design, branding and communications across many forms of media, from TV to Press, Website Redesigns to Social Strategy.
ShopTalk London aims to combine this joint experience to build bespoke teams & approaches that can quickly and efficiently draw up plans to answer & execute on a wide variety of briefs.
Paul & James can’t help but be hands-on, and love talking shop. If you do too, drop them an email.
