HC SVNT DRACONES
HERE BE DRAGONS
Our name and approach is derived from the old navigational term 'here be dragons', used to denote perceived danger in previously uncharted parts of the world.
Repurposing this, we created a philosophy which helps clients navigate the world of modern communications. Creativity lies at the axis of risk and reward, so we journey with our clients to the fringes of perceived danger, while keeping them on a safe course with our strategic mapping tool - the compass.
The Compass is our navigational tool to understand and leverage the opportunity around your brand. It is how we create bold & disruptive work for clients - identifying the parameters for effective storytelling from the brand pillars, and mapping them against surrounding culture - the 'headwinds' and 'tailwinds.'

Our base is part creative hub, part events space, part content studio.
It’s modular and multi-disciplinary, much like how we approach our work
Despite claims to diversity and creative thinking, agencies and brands have become homogeneous. Everyone thinks the same; different thinking and representation are lacking.
At Here Be Dragons, we do not discriminate, we foster an agency of tolerance and acceptance which only enhances creativity.
All that we do reflects our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion in action, not words.
Our commitment to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity, and experience drives us forward every day.
