Think today

Think is an award-winning content and publishing agency. It was founded by Ian McAuliffe and Tilly Boulter in 1999. Today, we employ more than 50 members of staff, work with over 35 clients and have offices in London and Glasgow.

At Think we specialise in creating publishing strategies for membership organisations, charities and corporations that need to communicate with a core group of members or stakeholders.

Our approach

We always deliver on the results we promise. Our award-winning magazines, books and digital solutions surpass our clients’ marketing objectives, and we are 100% confident in all our financial projections. We deliver solid, robust marketing strategies that ensure we never disappoint. Furthermore, our strong entrepreneurial ethos means we are best positioned to identify new opportunities and work in partnership with our clients to make the most of them.

Our passion for publishing

We start every project with a blank piece of paper and have no predetermined way of working with clients. We are not just interested in the soft elements, such as beautiful design and exciting content, but we are equally concerned with the hard commercial side and ROI of everything we produce.

We are members of the Content Marketing Association (CMA), the Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC) and the Professional Publishers Association (PPA). We are the only publishing agency to have won both the PPA’s Publisher of the Year award and the PPA’s Independent Publishing Company of the Year award, which we have won three times.

By 2016 75% of all media consumed will be digital.

By 2020 that proportion will be 80% – think what that means to your organisation.

At Think we believe in delivering content to readers whenever and however they want it. And increasingly they want it digitally – whether that be on their laptop, tablet or smartphone; and whether they have an iPhone or an Android device.

So we have made sure we are up to date with the latest digital technology to ensure that your magazine can be read by anyone, anywhere, anyhow. Take a look…
