  • Crafty Hiring

We’re Hiring! - Join our team & gain essential media experience as a Crafty Intern 


Introduction to Craft 


The world of media is being disrupted by powerful forces. Channels have multiplied. Time spent on social media and online video has exploded. Media consumption continues to fragment, and audiences are everywhere. But great communications planning can bring everything together. 


Craft Media London launched in 2018 with the intention of filling that strategic hole existing between media and creative agencies. We focus on communication strategy that plugs into the teams at creative agencies or clients directly to help determine exactly what comms needs to do in order to meet business objectives. 


At Craft we believe that making media and creative align around a real understanding of consumer behaviour, having absolute certainty around how a brand behaves, and an intrinsic knowledge of media channels leads to brilliant creative work and outstanding results.
