About The&Partnership

At The&Partnership we bring ideas and technology together to power brands and businesses. As one of the world's fastest-growing independent agency networks, we are increasingly known for developing bespoke new model agency solutions for clients across the globe.

We call this the &Model and the premise is very simple. Agency Creative, Strategy, Media, PR and Data/CRM, all working side by side, solving problems as one collaborative team with the client.

A rapidly changing market requires a radical new approach to marketing. We work alongside our clients' marketing departments - often with other agency partners - in new, nimble ways to deliver highly creative, data-driven work quickly and efficiently.

Backed by the might of WPP and GroupM, we've seen record growth over the past five years - expanding across 22 new markets and doubling in size against a challenging industry backdrop.

The&Partnership and NatWest Group

Having worked with NatWest Group since 2003, no one understands their business like us.

Our relationship with NatWest started nearly 20 years ago in 2003, with our first brief to develop a campaign for the Mint credit card. In 2013, we started The Box in London which in 2017 became The&Studio - a dedicated on-site digital delivery production team, located at NatWest Group head office in Edinburgh. Through a total of over 800 briefs a year and 1000 assets a month, it delivers high quality, large volume, fast turnaround creative solutions for a number of well-known banking brands (NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, Ulster Bank and Coutts) across all channels including social, email, branch comms to name a few.

In 2018, our London team started working with NatWest Group Venture brands, and in summer 2019 was appointed as creative agency for NatWest, complementing The&Studio's capabilities with audience insight, brand strategy and creative firepower.

Since then The&Partnership has:

* Supercharged We Are What We Do across Retail and Business Banking
* Showed Retail and Business customers that NatWest is Here To Support You during Covid

* Announced and explained Coutts' B Corp certification to colleagues and customers

In March 2021, NatWest launched its new brand platform, Tomorrow Begins Today, created by The&Partnership. Inspired by the NatWest Group purpose to champion potential, helping individuals, families and businesses thrive, Tomorrow Begins Today is a promise to help customers take action today to achieve their goals for tomorrow, sooner. It positions NatWest as a more energised, more emotive and more empathetic brand, changing minds and changing behaviours, to drive sustainable business growth. The&Partnership has created NatWest's first consistent creative vehicle, to improve the effectiveness of all bank communications, dramatising the benefits of taking action today through light-hearted interplay between characters 'Yesterday', 'Today' and 'Tomorrow'.
