About us

Creative Strategists

We are an independent creative agency who build close, long-term relationships with clients to break new ground.

 Founded in 1995, we offer a range of services: brand strategy, branding consultants, corporate identity design, digital marketing, external and internal campaigns and packaging.

 We enjoy working with a broad base of clients from both B2B and B2C sectors. In fact many of our clients cover both, or operate in B2B2C channels. Whatever your product or service, it’s about understanding your different customer segments and working out the most effective ways to ignite a dialogue with them that results in an action.

Based in Buckinghamshire we work with customers nationally and internationally as well as having strong connections with our local community.

“These are our cows, keep off!”

Working with Milestone, you’ll begin to notice the cows. They’re about the origins of branding. There was a time when branding meant burning a hot mark onto the rear end of a cow. It was about ownership.
It said, “These are my cows, keep off!”

 For us, ownership is still the power behind successful brands. But the emphasis has shifted. It’s now about the ownership of a category, a customer goal, an authentic spirit. But above all it’s that feeling of shared ownership with your employees and customers.

Our job is to help discover what’s yours to own – and then burn it onto your customers’ minds.

Some of our clients

At Milestone we’re lucky to work with a wide range of clients – from growing businesses to global brands.

What our clients say about us

  • "Milestone has been a great fit for me in my design career. The work is creative, and completed to a high standard for interesting clients. There's also a variety that really appeals to me as a designer who enjoys working across disciplines and trying new things. I've been able to develop skills I already had, as well as expand them into new areas and increase my confidence.

    Beyond that, the working atmosphere is always positive and friendly - even in hectic busy periods there are always plenty of smiles to be found. There's a sense that everyone here really gets on together – work events and nights out are common and always memorable. Everyone's accessible and down-to-earth, which I think is rare but incredibly valuable.

  • "Milestone has played a significant part in developing and progressing my career, and to me it's the type of place where 'you get out what you put in'. Since joining here in March 2016, I haven’t stopped learning and developing in my role as an Account Manager, which I believe is down to the countless opportunities I've had to get involved in a variety of exciting and challenging projects.

    What stood out to me the most initially was the friendly and collaborative culture in the agency. Not only are the team here very talented at what they do, but nobody has ever come across as unapproachable or unwilling to help out where they can; something which I think can be a rare combination in a business. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s ahead for this year, whilst continuing to learn and build on the skills I have already developed in the process."

  • “A big thank you to all the team for the spectacular job you have done for us (and, of course, continue to do for us). You have no idea how much the Milestone contribution means to us all here.”
    Jonathan KeighleyExecutive Chairman, SFM Europe
  • “The brief was a challenging one as it had to encompass the broad offering that CIM has as well as being flexible enough to appeal to marketers at different stages of their careers. We’re excited by the result!’’
    Esme GodwinHead of Marketing and Development, CIM
  • “I’ve been delighted with the work carried out by Milestone on the re-branding of our business. Their work has been bold, creative, innovative and, most importantly, consistent. However, what has impressed me most about Milestone has been their desire to work collaboratively. I feel by working together with me as a team to achieve the end goal they now have an intuitive understanding of my requirements. This understanding has led to them becoming an invaluable support to our business.”

  • “Please extend my congrats to the team for the new look and style. Well done!”
